Haryana government today hiked the Dearness Allowance (DA) payable to employees by 10 per cent.
The state increased the DA payable to employees from 80 per cent to 90 per cent, effective from July 10, an official release quoting chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said.
This would put a burden of Rs. 456.84 crore annually on the state exchequer, it added.
The DA would be paid in cash to all government employees for the month of November, and the arrears from July to October would be paid in December this year.
