As per 6th pay commission, the rate of festival advance should be increased by 25% whenever the DA payable on revised pay structure goes up by 50%. Whethere specific orders are necessary to be issued by DOPT or we can go by existing instruction that the advance will be automatically increased when DA crosses 50%.

No separate orders are required for revision of allowance by 25%.

In a similar case relating to increase of Cash Handling Allowance, DOPT has clarified the issue (http://circulars.nic.in/WriteReadData/CircularPortal/D2/D02est/4_6_2008-Estt-Pay-II-1.pdf).

Similar action can be taken in the instant case on the above analogy.

Are you a government servant? Then you must be knowing many of these things?

You can just go to the G-connect home page, click on the circular corner and then the 6the CPC circulars. You will come to know all about these
