Haryana government on Thursday released another instalment of dearness allowance (DA) to the state government employees with effect from July 1, 2015.

The finance minister Captain Abhimanyu said in a statement that the employees would get DA at the rate of 119 percent of their basic pay thus registering an increase of 6 percent in the dearness allowance. At present they were getting 113 percent, he said.

Meanwhile, the arrears of the hiked DA of 6 percent from July 1, 2015 would be given in cash. Captain Abhimanyu added that the state exchequer would thus bear an additional burden of over Rs 314.39 crore annually.
