The Assam government on Sunday announced an additional dearness allowance (DA) of four per cent for its employees and all India service officers as a festival gift.
The hike will be effective from July 1, and the additional amount will be paid with October’s salary, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said in a tweet.
It will increase the DA of the state government employees to 35 per cent.
“Happy to announce 4 per cent additional Dearness Allowance for State Govt employees/All India Service Officers w.e.f. 1st July, 2022, payable with this month’s salary.
“Hope this will add to the festive fervour. Also extending my good wishes for an auspicious and happy Deepawali!,” Sarma said on the microblogging site.
