Chandigarh, October 11

The government announced 2 per cent increase in dearness relief for state government pensioners and family pensioners on revised 7th Pay Commission pattern with effect from July 1, bringing it on a par with Central government employees with a hike from 7 per cent to 9 per cent.

Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu on Thursday said this enhancement would have an additional financial burden of about Rs92.64 crore on the state exchequer for eight months from July 2018 to February 2019 in the current financial year. — TNS
