FAKE DA ORDER 2015 – FINANCE MINISTRY CLARIFIES
Be cautious about “fake” D.A. order : Finance Ministry warns
As we are aware that central employees and pensioners are eagerly waiting for the announcement of Dearness Allowance, which is due from 1st January 2015. Though as per convention, it is announced in the month of March, but this time cabinet is yet to approve the hike.(There is a possibility of announcement on 2.4.15).
In the meantime some persons have circulated a fake order for payment of D.A. It looks like almost original (A copy of which is available with us also but we decided not to publish the fake order to avoid any possible misunderstanding) and is being widely circulated in social medias. It may have been created for simple fun on “April Fool” day but it may have wide impact.
Ministry of Finance issued an O.M. warning against this fake order as
“It is clarified that the O.M. dated 30.03.2015, purportedly issued by the Ministry of Finance, is a fake and that no such instructions have been issued by the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance. Accordingly, all Ministries/Departments and Central Government offices are hereby advised not to take cognisance of these fake instructions being circulated in Government offices.”
