2) the state government might go to the Supreme Court. State govt. employees’ organizations are preparing for the DA case to go to the Supreme Court.
3) The state government can make an announcement on paying the pending DA.

General Secretary of the Confederation of State Government Employees, Malay Mukherjee quoted, “We are confident of victory. But I think another legal battle will only add to the delay. Hence, it would be wise on the part of the state government to make an announcement on this count before November 4, and avoid contempt of court proceedings”.
