This is too much. In one stroke the Govt has struck a huge blow to all the Central Govt employees as well as the pensioners. Lakhs of employees from Min of Health & FW, Communications, Police, Para military Forces are working round the clock in this difficult time risking their lives without any extra rewards. On the other hand this Govt is adamant in going ahead with lavish avoidable Central Vista Redevelopment Project(in New Delhi) which is a massive waste of public money in these time. Why can’t the Govt put a stop or keep it on back burner for the time being. The amount earmarked for Central Vista Project at least can save the poor employees and pensioners ! In addition to this DA freeze the employees are donating their one day salary to the PM CARES Fund. Let there be a TOTAL FREEZE ON THE SALARIES, PERKS etc of all the Ministers, MPs, MLAs etc. for the similar period. Why the poor employees or pensioners are always made the scapegoats !
Dr.D.Paul Babu says
Once the Union Cabinet has already approved the DA/DR Enhancement from 17% to 21% with effect from 1st January 2020, the Government should not withdraw it’s decision again, as the People will no longer have any faith in the Government if it goes back on it’s Commitment.
Payment of enhanced DA/DR should have been done upto 30th April 2020 as this would have been seen as a very Benevolent Action on the part of the Government.
