A leader of the West Bengal State Coordination Committee, an organisation of state government employees, said it is actually an old announcement as the state government had decided in June last year to pay DA at 125 per cent from January. On June 2018, Banerjee had announced 18 per cent hike in dearness allowance for state government employees and a 10 per cent interim relief from January 2019.

Post this raise, the gap of DA between Central government employees with state employees will be 23 per cent.
