Affiliated Unions of NFIR.

Brother,
Sub: Merger of 50% DA with Pay and grant of Interim Relief.
NFIR has been writing to the Government of India (including Prime Minister, Finance Minister etc) for merger of 50% DA with pay through its letters dated 10/01/2013, 05/08/2013, 27/09/2013. Also in its 27th National Convention held at Visakhapatnam from 10th  to 12th December, 2013, the Federation had passed a resolution demanding merger of 50% DA with Pay and grant of interim relief to employees of Central Government including Railway employees.
NFIR feels happy to convey that the Central Government has conceded the demand of the employees raised by the Federation. 


Union Cabinet is likely to consider the issues to day for taking final decision. Federation will advise decision when taken by the Government. Federation expects that there may be Good News for all Central Government employees very soon.

Yours faithfully,

AIRF Demanding Merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay through his Press Release:-
PRESS RELEASE 
New Delhi: February 21, 2014 - All India Railwaymen’s Federation(AIRF) has addressed the issue of merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay for all purposes w.e.f. 01.01.2014 to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the Finance Minister, Government of India, as Dearness Allowance will cross 100%. Unfortunately, there is no heed to this issue despite agitations at length over the Indian Railways by the AIRF. 
It is also unfortunate that due 10% Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st January, 2014 has still not been announced by the Government of India. 
AIRF earnestly requests the Government of India to immediately announce Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st January, 2014 all along with merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay.

Central Government employees may get 50% DA merger - BSNL Employees Union

The Central Government has already formed the 7th Pay Commission for it's employees. The Commission will recommend wage revision for the 50 lakh Central Government employees, as well as pension revision for the 30 lakh pensioners. As per media reports, the Government may merge 50% DA with the basic pay, for which the unions are hard pressing the Government. 
As of now, the Central Government employees are getting 90% DA. They are going to get another 10% DA increase from next month, which will take their total DA to 100% of pay. The normal practice is that DA will be merged with pay, when it reaches 50%. Merger of 50% DA with basic pay was done by the 5th Pay Commission, while the 6th Pay Commission refused to do so. Now, as per media reports, the Government is likely to make a proposal in this regard to the terms of reference for the 7th Pay Commission. 
In respect of the BSNL employees, the BSNLEU has already raised the demand that 50% IDA should be merged with the basic pay. The recently held Rajkot CEC meeting of BSNLEU has passed a resolution, strongly demanding 50% IDA merger.
