The decision was taken at the meeting of the Union Cabinet led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. The revised rate will be considered applicable from January 2023.

The government announced the last hike in dearness allowance in September last year when the DA was hiked from 34 to 38 per cent.

Dearness Allowance is provided by the central government for its employees to adjust to the inflation-like situation.

Pensioners also get dearness relief same as the amount received by the employees of the central government.
