Madhya Pradesh raises DA by 4% for state workers
The Madhya Pradesh government would raise state workers’ Dearness Allowance (DA) by 4% to match the federal government’s. CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan increased the state government employee DA.
The state assembly elections later this year are linked to the dearness allowance rise. After the March 15 cabinet meeting, the MP administration also increased the DA for state government workers. MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra said the amount was enhanced retroactively from January 1, 2023.
Third-time scale pay scale benefit decision –
The Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister announced that state government workers who reached 30 years of service in 2014 will get third-grade pay scale benefits. He said that the state government would also provide the fourth time scale pay scale to individuals who have served 35 years by July 1, 2023.
Increased Dearness Allowance or Relief
This DA rise would pay Dearness Allowance arrears from January to June in three payments, according to the directive. The CM stated that all Madhya Pradesh state government workers will get a proportional dearness allowance hike under the sixth pay grade.
The CM said:
Our government is always employee-friendly. We made numerous groundbreaking employee-focused choices. We will offer state workers 42% dearness allowance in line with the Centre starting January, as I indicated recently. Dearness allowance arrears will be paid in three equal payments from January to June 2023.
The Dearness Allowance will rise proportionally for sixth-payscale workers. In 2014, we gave 30-year-old workers third-time scale compensation. We also resolved to grant the fourth pay scale to all 35-year-old veterans by July 1, 2023.
Election equations rule.
Madhya Pradesh will have 230 assembly elections before the year’s end. The Congress won 114 seats and became the state government in the 2018 assembly elections. The BJP came in second with 109 seats. Jyotiraditya Scindia-aligned MLAs overthrew the Kamal Nath-led Congress government in March 2020. Scindia and his followers joined the BJP, returning it to its stronghold.
