Notifications for Proof
I shall explain in detail each allowance that the Government froze via letters of various dates. The detail is as under:
Disparity Reduction Allowance 2021 @ 25%
The Finance Division granted Disparity Reduction Allowance 2021(DRA-2021 @ 25% of the running basic pay as of 1st March 2021 vide Notification No. 14(1)R-3/2021 dated 03-03-2021. It also froze the same allowance with effect from 1st Mar 2021.
Disparity Reduction Allowance 2022@ 15%
After the struggle of the employees Federal Government again granted DRA 2022 @ 15% of the running basic pay and also made it frozen with effect from 1st March 2022 vide Notification F.No.14(1)R-3/2021-69 dated 23 -02-2022.
Adhoc Relief Allowance 2022 @ 15%
Federal Government issued the Notification of Revised Pay Scales 2022 with effect from 1st July 2023. Vide the same Notification Finance Division also granted Adhoc Relief Allowance 2022 @ 15% on the existing basic pay of previous revised pay scales 2017. The Federal Government also froze the same allowance vide Notification No. F.No.1(2)Imp/2022-283 dated 01-07-2022.
Adhoc Relief Allowance 2023 @ 30% and 35%
Finance Division issued a Notification No. F. No.1(1)Imp/2023-226 dated 04-07-2023 in connection with Adhoc Relief Allowance 2023 (ARA-2023) @ 35% for BPS-01 to BPS-16 employees and 30% for BPS-17 to BPS-22 employees. If we look at the Notification we see that it is written that this allowance is 35% and 30% of Basic Pay as on 30-06-2023. If the pay at a later stage increases it will not increase. The Finance Division mentioned that on the pay as of 30-06-2023. It did not mention on the running basic pay etc. If so then it would increase with the increase of pay.
On the other hand, the Finance Division has sent a clarification letter to the Ministry of Defence regarding frozen Adhoc Relief Allowance 2023 on the pay as on 30th June 2023.
So from the above discussion, we conclude that no allowance is on the running basic pay. So only one increase will increase on 1st December 2023.
Who will not Get the Annual Increment 2023?
- The employees who got an appointment on 1st June (After Noon) or later will not get the annual increment 2023.
- Employees whom the Department promoted/upgraded/granted time scale or re-appointed after 1st June 2023 will not get an annual increment in 2023 unless they use the option to fix the pay on 2nd December after getting an annual increment in the previous pay scale.
- Some employees may have a penalty of stoppage of annual increments due to disciplinary cases.
