  1. The custom of ignoring fraction is detrimental to the salary of govt employee and not in line with the thesis to compendate the dearness.

  2. The fraction of 0.5 or more should be rounded off to 1 in calculating DA for July 2017 otherwise it will be great injustice to ignore fraction of 0.93.

  3. Good news . Already good allowance good matrix. government employees will grow by this 1%DA.
