DRA-2022 Balochistan on Initial Basic Pay
It is a famous saying “Something is better than nothing”. The employees of Balochistan got this DRA on the initial basic pay instead of the current basic pay. But it is better rather to not get it. The employees who are recently appointed will not get affected by it. However, the employees working for long will get a loss or less allowance. The newly recruited employee and old recruited employee on the same pay scale will get the same amount of this Disparity Reduction Allowance 2022. This will increase the salary of the newly appointed employee in 2021-22 for the province of Balochistan.

Confusion/Mistake in the Notification
If we look at the last para (h) of the Notification, it is saying that the term basic pay will also include the amount of Personal Pay granted in annual increments beyond the maximum of the existing pay scales. If this para is correct then the employees will get this DRA on running basic pay. Because personal pay always means here beyond the pay scales that are always with running basic pay relates. Let’s wait for its correction.
