West Bengal declares 10% D.A. with effect from January 2012

The Chief Minister of West Bengal declared 10% DA for West Bengal Govt. employees from January 2012. At present West Bengal Govt employees are lagging 23% from Central Govt. employees. With this D.A. they will be lagging 13% from the Central counterparts. No statement regarding arrear pay announced however. This increase in DA involves an additional expenditure of 250 crores each month or 3000 crores in a year, she said further.
Describing it as a "New Year gift" to the state government employees, she regretted that they were now lagging behind their counterparts in the central government by 23 percent as far as DA was concerned."Our financial position, thanks to the previous (Left Front) government, is precarious. It has left us burdened with a debt of Rs.2.03 lakh crore. But we will pay all the arrear DAs slowly," said the Chief Minister.
In August this year, the new Trinamool Congress-Congress government of Banerjee had announced a three-month freeze on DA payment, citing financial constraints.

We, the teachers of West Bengal government and sponsored schools are yet to get the 50% of the arrears payment. It seems that both the CM and state FM are misleading people and media when they make statement s that all the dues related to 50% of outstanding arrears are cleared. The media are also completely silent about the plight of more than 1 lakh teachers....
