The Haryana Government has notified the rates of Dearness Allowance (DA), admissible to all categories of employees of the State Government, who have either elected to be governed or deemed to have elected to be governed or have been brought to be governed either of the two rules, namely Haryana Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 and Haryana Civil Services (Assured Career Progression) Rules, 2008, as the case may be.
As per the notification issued by the Finance Department to this effect, no DA will be admissible to the employees from January 1, 2006 and from July 1, 2006, it will be admissible at the rate of two per cent; from January 1, 2007, at the rate of six per cent; from July 1, 2007, at the rate of nine per cent; from January 1, 2008, at the rate of 12 per cent and from July 1, 2008, at the rate of 16 per cent of the basic pay plus Non-Practising Allowance (NPA), wherever applicable.
The payment of DA shall be made after adjusting the installment of DA already sanctioned and paid to the employees. The basic pay in the revised pay structure means the pay drawn in the prescribed pay band plus the applicable grade pay but does not include any other type of pay like special pay, etc. For the purpose of calculation of DA, Non-Practising Allowance, wherever applicable, shall be taken into account as at present. The DA will continue to be a distinct element of remuneration and will not be treated as pay within the ambit of Civil Service Rules or any other relevant rules.
