Karnataka government has cut additional Dearness Allowance(DA) of the retired state government employees due to the precarious financial condition.
Karnataka's government has not cut the pension of the retired state government employees, but on May 5, 2020, the government ordered to stop the additional Dearness Allowance payable to the state government employees and pensioners with effect from January 1, 2020. The pensioners would get their DA with the current rates due to the severe cash crunch amid the COVID-19 crisis. So, the retired employees would get their pension without any cuts in their total amount.
