    Here Odisha Govt. initiates a very bad example of reducing hike of D.A. as well as Dearness Relief to its employees as well as pensioners.The Govt.of India will announce 4% of hike in D.A . and D.R. for its employees and pensioners with effect from 1 January,2020.Odisha will the announce this with effect from 1 July,2020. Therefore this will be a trend of Govt. of Odisha for all time to come.
