Govt orders hike in Dearness Allowance (DA) for unskilled and semi-skilled workers 

Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia issued an order to increase dearness allowance (DA) of unskilled, semi-skilled and other workers of Delhi on Monday. He said this will bring some relief to the working class facing the impact of Covid-19 pandemic and inflation.

Delhi government said in a statement that thanks to the increased rate, the monthly salary of unskilled workers has increased from Rs 15,908 to Rs 16,064 and the monthly salary of semi-skilled workers has increased from Rs 17,537 to Rs 17,693. The monthly salary of skilled workers has been increased from Rs 19,291 to Rs 19,473, it said.

Sisodia said in a statement that the step was taken keeping the interests of the poor and the working class during the pandemic in mind and clerical and supervisor class employees will also receive the benefit. He said that DA cannot be withheld for workers in the unorganised sector, who normally receive only minimum wages. He said that although the AAP government is cutting many expenses, it has decided to increase the DA of labourers, keeping their benefit in mind.

Sisodia said that inflation and skyrocketing prices of commodities in the country has affected every section of the society. He said that with items like cereals, pulses and oil becoming expensive, the increase in wages will help the labourers. He said that the minimum wage paid to labourers in Delhi is the highest compared with any other state in the country and this is the second time in a year that Delhi government has increased DA for workers.

Delhi government has also launched a ‘shramik mitra’ scheme to enable construction workers of the city to receive benefits of government schemes. Sisodia said several government schemes are developed for the benefit of workers, but they remain unaware of these. He said around 800 shramik mitras will visit the homes of workers and help them apply for different assistance schemes of the state government.
