Agartala: In a significant move to boost the financial well-being of government employees and pensioners, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha on Tuesday declared a 5% Dearness Allowance (DA) effective from January 1, 2024.

“With great pleasure, I announce a 5% DA for government employees and pensioners, reflecting our dedication to their welfare.

This decision will result in an additional expenditure of Rs 500 crores from the government,” said Dr Saha.

The Chief Minister underscored the significance of this move, especially considering the substantial impact it will have on the lives of over 1 lakh 6 thousand government employees and 82,000 pensioners.
