Last monday on 3rd October 2011, Finance Ministry published an order regarding the payment of Dearness allowance to Central Government employees with effect from 1.7.2011.

Commonly these orders has been pubished before the month of October and March, but this time some delay to publish. Thus the order has not been indicated the arrears of the months of July and August and also missing the statement that "the payment of additional instalment of Dearness allowance payable to Central Government employees shall be paid in cash".

What for this delay..?
