Salary increase from January 2020
The salaries of state employees have not been increased since January 2020. The UP government last year postponed a pay hike for government employees due to the corona virus. Then those employees were waiting for a salary increase. Now the government has given D.A. to more than 1.5 million state employees. And announced additional pay benefits. In addition, DR benefits have been announced for more than 12 lakh pensioners.
The allowance will be given 3 times in the next 7 months
