by Nidhi Bhati
The Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) has announced freezing of additional dearness allowance (DA) for executives and non-unionised supervisors of central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) drawing salaries under certain pay scales till 30 June 2021. The decision has been taken in view of the crisis arising out of Covid-19 pandemic. The DPE also said no arrears for the period from 1 October 2020 to 30 June 2021 will be paid. However, DA at current rates with effect from 1 July 2020 will continue to be paid.
