A proposal has been made for this so that it can be implemented on 1 January 2026.

At the same time, the DA is amended at an interval of 6 months. The inflation rate is determined on the basis of the All India Consumer Price Index by the Labor Bureau of the Ministry of Labor and Employment. On the basis of which the DA is determined.
On the other hand, Union Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Choudhary said that there is no need for another new pay commission to review the salary pension of employees’ pensioners. Revision of payment made to Central Government employees pensioners can be done at any time and for this there will be no need for constitution of 8th Pay Commission.
