    Ministor of State in the Ministry of Finance

    (Shri Pankaj Chaudhary)

    (a) & (b) Yes, Sir. Several Representations regarding release of arrears of 18 months of DAIDR payable to Central Government employees/pensioners have been received from. various Central Government employees/pensioners’ associations such as National Council (JCM), National Federation of indian Railway Men (NFIR), All India Railway Men's Federation (AIRF), All India Retired Raiway Men's Federation (AIRRF), JCOS/OR Veterans Association (JOVA), Bhartiya Railway Karamcharl Union (BRKU), Bhartiya Pension Manch, National Ex-Servicemen Co-ordination Committee and Veteran Association etc.

    (c) The decision to freeze three instalments of DA/DR to Central Government employee/pensioners due from 01.01.2020, 01.07.2020 & 01.01.2021 was taken in the context of COVID-19 which caused economic disruption so as to ease pressure on Government finances.

    As the adverse financial impact of pandemic in 2020 and the financing of welfare measures taken by Government had a fiscal spill over beyond Financial Year 2020-21, release of arrears of DA/DR was not considered feasible.
