Cabinet Okays DA on superannuation at par with Centre’s


SRINAGAR, JUNE 26: The Cabinet which met here today under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister, Ms Mehbooba Mufti approved that the salary for the month in which a State Government employee reaches the age of superannuation, shall be drawn at such rate of Dearness Allowance (DA) as would be applicable to Central Government employee on that date.

This would apply to State Government employees proceeding on Compensation pension, Invalid pension, Superannuation, (and Special) pension and Retiring pension.

The decision was taken as during last many years, the DA announced for Central Government employees has also been released in favor of State Government employees, although belated at times. In respect of employees on the verge of retirement, the belated release of DA only added to avoidable difficulties, particularly the need to furnish the pension case once again to AG's office/State Government for authorization of residual gratuity/leave salary benefits.

Similar difficulties faced by All Service (AIS) officers was redressed via Government order No. 23-F of 2016, dated 27-01-2016, whereby, it was approved that the salary for month in which an AIS officer reaches the date of superannuation, shall be drawn at such rate of DA as would be applicable to Central Government employees on that date.

Such a dispensation for retiring State Government employees as well was examined and found justified.
