New Delhi: The Union Cabinet approved an additional 3 per cent raise in dearness allowance over the existing rate of 9 per cent for central government employees and pensioners. This will benefit about 1.1 crore employees.

Finance minister Arun Jaitley said that the decision will cost the exchequer over ₹ 9,000 crore, which came into effect from January 1, 2019. 

The Cabinet gave nod for a 2-percentage point increase in DA for central government employees, last year in August.
