Press Release of AIRF on Merger of Dearness Allowance and Announcement of Dearness Allowance w.e.f 01.01.2014.
New Delhi: February 21, 2014 – All India Railwaymen’s Federation(AIRF) has addressed the issue of merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay for all purposes w.e.f. 01.01.2014 to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the Finance Minister, Government of India, as Dearness Allowance will cross 100%. Unfortunately, there is no heed to this issue despite agitations at length over the Indian Railways by the AIRF.
It is also unfortunate that due 10% Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st
January, 2014 has still not been announced by the Government of India.
AIRF earnestly requests the Government of India to immediately announce Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st January, 2014 all along with merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay.
