"The Punjab government has decided to take back a letter stopping DA of pensioners of state government who acquired foreign citizenship," the spokesperson said.

A large number of retired government employees from Punjab have over the last few decades migrated to other countries, especially the UK, the US and Canada.

Punjab has a big Non-Resident Indians (NRI) population with strong links to their roots in the state.
