Punjab finance minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa on Friday gave his nod to release 6% dearness allowance (DA) with November salary or pension for the government employees and pensioners.

With the release of this DA installment, the state would touch 125% from present 119% of the basic pay/pension, Dhindsa, in a statement issued here, said.

In a relief to foreign-settled retired employees, he said DA would continue with their pensions. The government has decided to take back a letter stopping DA of pensioners who have acquired foreign citizenship, he added.
