Himachal Pradesh government has withdrawn the notification issuing 11% dearness allowance (DA) to Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officers.

The government withdrew notification after drawing criticism from various employees’ unions.

“The dearness allowance will be given to officers along with other employees and pensioners,” said CM Jai Ram Thakur when asked about the strong resentment among employees and other officers.

There are about four lakh employees in the state. They were expecting the government to hold a meeting of the joint coordination committee.

The government had announced 6% DA to employees on August 15. The enhanced DA would provide financial benefits amounting to 450 crore to employees and pensioners.
