While three DAs are pending for the employees, the State government has appealed to the ECI to give permission to release one DA.

Consultations were held between the State government and the ECI in this regard. The Election Commission asked the State government why the payment of DAs has been delayed and why they are giving the employees now. 

The Election Commission had also inquired about the payment methods of DAs in the past.
