Srinagar: Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) Monday welcomed the government’s decision regarding the release of Dearness Allowance (DA) at a hiked rate of 38 percent, with an increase of four percent for the government employees and pensioners.
In a statement, EJAC President Fayaz Ahmad Shabnam while hailing the government’s decision said this increment was the need of the hour as the market inflation has reached all time high.
He said that such measures will boost the morale of employees and would be beneficial to the entire Jammu and Kashmir. He said that EJAC has been continuously demanding for the hike in DA for a long time.
Shabnam extended his gratitude to the concerned authorities for this considerate decision and expressed his hope that all the other lingering issues regarding the welfare of employees will be resolved at the earliest.
