Release DA arrears to employees in one week: SAD

Chandigarh, October 10, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today asked the Congress government to release Dearness Allowance (DA) of State employees which was due since January, 2017 within one week and also disburse their salaries for this month by October 26 in view of the Diwali festivities.

In a statement here former minister Maheshinder Singh Grewal said it was shocking that the Punjab government was refusing to release DA arrears to employees and owed them more than Rs 5,000 crore in arrears.

He said in direct contrast the central government had announced a five per cent increase in Dearness and Relief allowances from July 1 this year giving an additional Rs 16,000 crore to fifty lakh central government employees and pensioners. “The Punjab government should also hike DA allowance by five per cent from July this year on the central pattern and release arrears”, he added.

Asking the Congress government to take these steps immediately, Mr Grewal said “employees were forced to observe a Black Diwali last year. They should be given arrears due to them this year before Diwali”.

He also demanded that the report of the sixth Pay Commission should be submitted immediately and the same should be implemented as quickly as possible. The Akali leader also demanded that 27,000 contractual employees should be regularised and that the government should put a stop to the practice of keeping new recruits on probation for three years by paying them basic pay only.

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
