Nagaland Government has announced granting of Dearness Allowance (DA)/Additional Dearness Allowance (ADA) to its employees with effect from January 1, 2008, and July 1, 2008, at revised rates subject to conditions. Principal Secretary and Finance Commissioner Toshi Aier in an order said the rate of DA has been revised from the existing 41% to 47 % with effect from January 1, 2008, and from 47% to 54% with effect from July 1, 2008, in respect of employees drawing pay in the revised scales under ROP 1999. The rate of ADA has also been revised from the existing 249% to 265% from January 1, 2008, and from 265% to 283% from July 1, 2008, in respect of government employees drawing pay in the pre-revised scales under ROP 1993. The order said the DA/ADA will continue to be a distinct element of remuneration and will not be treated as pay within the ambit of FR 9(21). The revised rate of DA/ADA shall also apply to the employees appointed on contract against sanctioned posts, and drawing pay in identical scale applicable to the regular employees of the corresponding categories. But these orders shall not apply to the Work-charged employees (whether on time scale of pay or on fixed daily/monthly wages) nor shall these orders apply to any other categories of employees on fixed monthly pay or on daily wages. The order further said the whole of the arrears from January 1, 2008, to November 30, 2008, will be credited to the respective GPF/CPF accounts of the employees concerned. Cash payment shall be made from December 2008 salary onwards. No part of the arrears upto November 30, 2008, shall be paid in cash except in respect of those employees who have already retired from service or have died or are due to retire on superannuation on or before March 31, 2009. The government servants who have not yet opened Provident Fund Account can be allowed to draw the arrears only after the Provident Fund Accounts are opened so that the arrears can be credited to their Provident Fund Accounts. Arrears of DA/ADA may be paid in cash in respect of those employees who are not required to subscribe to provident fund under the Rules applicable to them. The order instructed all Heads of offices/DDOs to carefully scrutinize all arrears bills to ensure that no cash payments are allowed except in respect of those who have already retired or died or are due to retire on superannuation on or before March 31, 2009. The amount of arrears credited to the Provident Fund shall not be treated as accumulation for the purpose of temporary or Non-refundable withdrawals till March 31, 2010.
