The remaining 50% of the delayed payment will be added to the salary of February 2022 to be paid in March 2022

“The employees of my state are ‘karmyogis’ in the true sense,” Chouhan wrote in a message. Certainly, the service you provided to the state during the Corona era is admirable. The state has had to deal with 2 catastrophic Corona waves in the previous year and a half. As a result, the government’s spending grew, while revenue income decreased dramatically.”

“The government had held the hike in the employees’ compensation,” he explained. We have now agreed to boost the dearness allowance as well as provide an increase. The state’s dearness allowance for all government employees would be boosted by 8%.” With that, now the total dearness allowance to the employees of the state will go up from 12% to 20%.
