Due to the increase in dearness allowance, not only the salary of the employees has increased but they have also got the benefit of arrears. For example, the central government announced an increase in dearness allowance or DA in March 2023, but the increased dearness allowance came into effect only from January 2023. In such a situation, the employees were given arrears in lieu of previous months. The same is the case with employees in all states where DA has been increased.
