  • The GB Govt has frozen this allowance at the level as on 1st March 2021.
  • This allowance is on the running basic pay or current basic pay.

Is GB DRA on Running or Initial Basic Pay?


The Gilgit Baltistan Government has notified this allowance on the current or running basic pay. It means the basic pay that the employee is currently getting. You can clarify the same from para “e” and “i” of this Notification. Federal Government also announced the DRA on running basic pay. Punjab Govt did not grant the DRA instead it announced Special Allowance that is on initial basic pay.


Special Thanks:
