According to media reports, the central government employees could expect another DA hike along with an increase in HRA as early as January 2022. However, the HRA hike could be limited to 11.56 lakh employees of the Railway Board.  

If the finance ministry approves the proposal, then Railway Board government employees could start receiving increased HRA in January 2021. 

The demand to increase the HRA was put forward by the Indian Railway Technical Supervisors Association and the National Federation of Railwaymen. If the government accepts the demand to increase the house rent allowance, employees could get a bumper increase in the salary.
