DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% – Dearness Allowance Estimation

DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% – Dearness Allowance Estimation

DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% based on Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) from January 2016 to December 2016 – Net increase in DA with effect from January 2017 is estimated to be 2% or 3%

All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for the month of November 2016 has been released by Ministry of Labour few days back.

What do we need for estimating DA from January 2017 ?

After implementation of 7th Pay Commission report, same inflation index i.e Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) with base year 2001=100, which was used for 6th Pay Commission Pay, is adopted for determining Dearness Allowance of Central Government Employees and Pensioners.

The only difference in DA calculation as far as DA from January 2016 will be, will be taking the Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015 in the place of Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2005 which was used in 6th CPC DA calculation

Dearness Allowance payable after implementation of 7th Pay Commission = (Avg of CPI-IW for the past 12 months – Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)*100/(Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)

In order to determine DA with effect from January 2017, based on the above formula we need Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to December 2016

Now that Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to November 2016 is available, we have made an attempt to estimate Dearness Allowance applicable to Central Government Employees and Pensioners with effect from 1st January 2016, by assuming the possible CPI (IW) for the month of December 2016.

Month Actual AICPI-IW
Jan-2016 269
Feb-2016 267
Mar-2016 268
Apr-2016 271
May-2016 275
Jun-2016 277
Jul-2016 280
Aug-2016 278
Sep-2016 277
Oct-2016 278
Nov-2016 277
Dec-2016 Yet to be released

Estimation of DA from 1st January 2017:

Scenario 1 : No increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

AICPI (IW) for November 2016 is 277. If AICPI (IW) for December 2016 remains the same as November 2016, there will be additional 1% increase in DA from January 2017 which would make overall DA as 5%.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+277)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 5 %

Scenario 2: Decrease in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

Even if All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) decreases by 31 point and pegged at 246 in the month of December 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 4% . At the same time even for 1 point decrease in the index for December 2016 will result in lesser DA increase from January 2017 compared to Sceanrio 1 in which index is unaltered in Dec 2016.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+246)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 4 %
DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+276)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 4 %

Scenario 3 : Increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

It is very interesting to note here that, even for increase in consumer price index in the month of December up to 31 points, i.e Increase in AICPI (IW) for December 2016 to 308 points from 277 points in November 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 5% only.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+277+
278+277+308)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 5 %

The other scenario that increase of more than 31 points in AICPI (IW) in the month of December 2016 for making DA with effect from January 2017 more than 5% is most unlikely.

Hence, it is more logical to conclude that DA from January 2017 will be either 4% or 5%.

7% DA for Tamilnadu State Government Employees from July 2016

Tamil Nadu CM announces seven per cent DA hike for govt employees

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam today announced a Dearness Allowance hike of seven percent for government employees and pensioners effective July one this year.

Increasing the DA to 132 per cent from the present 125 per cent would benefit 18 lakh government employees, pensioners and family pensioners and it would entail an approximate additional annual burden of Rs.1,833.33 crore to the state, he said in release here.

The increase in DA for the July 1 to November 30 period will be remitted in lumpsum in the bank accounts of employees, he said, adding the hike from the current month will be paid together with their salaries.

Following the hike in DA for Union government employees, Panneerselvam said government employees would get a hike ranging between Rs 427 and Rs 5,390, pensioners and family pensioners would get an increase from Rs 214 to Rs.2,695.

He said the hike would also be applicable to municipal bodies, those working in State-aided educational institutions, teachers, village assistants, Anganwadi and nutritional meal programme staffers.

On the hike, he said he was following the footsteps of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in ensuring the welfare of government employees as they delivered the State’s welfare schemes to the people

Drastic Reduction of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government Employees, Opted in 7th Pay Scale

Drastic Reduction of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government Employees, Opted in 7th Pay Scale

Dear friends,

As you are aware that 7th Pay Commission has computed 125% DA out of 125.75% due as on 1.1.2016 and 0.75% become due has been ignored. But according to earlier practice/agreement, this 0.75% has to be carry forwarded for calculating DA as on 1.7.2016. If the fraction carries forwarded the actual DA due as on 1.7.2016 shall work out to 3.28%. Thus 3% DA has to be announced in place of present 2% (Order placed in Annexure I). In this respect secretary staff has written a letter to the government on 06/09/2016. But the government ignored the staff side demand on this matter.

Now the Government of India has issued orders for 7% dearness allowance w.e.f. 1.7.2016 to the employees of Central Government who had exercised option to continue the 6th CPC Pay scale and also the employees of Central Autonomous body to whom 7th pay commission has not implemented as yet (copy of the order enclosed in Annexure II).

In this respect a chart comparing the amount of DA getting to the employees in new and old rates is given in annexure III.

From the above, the demand of the staff side for 3% DA w.e.f. 1.7.2016 is justified. Thus staff side should take up the matter for immediate rectification and also the entirety of central Government should join the 25th December parliament march to achieve the 20 point charter of demands which include grant of 3% DA, increase of minimum pay & fitment formula, immediate implementation of allowances etc.

With greeting

Railway Unions demand 3% DA hike

Railway Unions demand 3% DA hike

New Delhi: Expressing “dissatisfaction” over over the announcement of 2 per cent increase in dearness allowance by the government, railway unions have demanded it be raised to 3 per cent.

We have expressed dissatisfaction over the announcement of a meagre 2 per cent rise in DA by the Central government from July 1, 2016, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen M Raghavaiah said.

Ahead of Diwali, the Centre has announced 2 per cent dearness allowance for Central government employees effective from July.

“Central government employees and pensioners have been waiting eagerly for the announcement of DA since September 2016. But we are disappointed that the government has announced only 2 per cent whereas the 12-month average of Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016, works out to be 2.92 per cent,” Raghavaiah said and added “The Government ought to have been considerate in announcing this half-yearly hike in DA and rounded off to 3 per cent.”

All India Railwaymen Federation General Secretary S Gopal Mishra said 2 per cent DA is not satisfactory and it should be raised to 3 per cent.

Cabinet approves release of an instalment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Pensioners due from 01.07.2016

The Union Cabinet under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval to release an instalment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to Pensioners w.e.f. 01.07.2016 representing an increase of 2% of the revised Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise. The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be Rs. 5622.10 crore per annum and in the Financial Year 2016-17 for the period of 8 months (i.e. from July 2016 to February 2017), it would be Rs.3748.06 crore. About 50.68 lakh Government employees and 54.24 lakh pensioners will be benefitted.

Why the DA from July 2016 is not announced yet ?

Why the DA from July 2016 is not announced yet ?

All the Central Government Employees wonder why there is so much delay in announcing the DA from July 2016, the first instalment of Dearness Allowance in 7th CPC.

The silence of the Federations in the Dearness Allowance issue is not understandable. The way the present Government deal with the issues related to central government Employees is unacceptable. But it seems that the Staff Associations lost its vigour to fight with the Government to settle the genuine issues pertaining to Central Government Employees.

Already the fate of the Allowances is not known. To Everyone’s Surprise, the Government is not ready to say anything about Dearness Allowance, as there is none to ask them about why the DA has not been announced. If the Federation know the reason for the delay of announcing the DA from July 2016, they bound to tell the CG Staffs the reason behind the inordinate delay.

Whether it is 3% or 2% whatever it may be , but Dearness Allowance announcement should be made in time. The morale of the employee should not be let down. Because low morale can lead to poor cooperation, low productivity.

Dearness Allowance announcement before Diwali ?

Dearness Allowance announcement before Diwali ?

Dearness-Allowance-Diwali

Usually Government approves the dearness allowance during the 1st week of September and release the government order in 3rd or 4th week of September, but this year government not yet approved dearness allowance from 1.7.2016. After 7th Pay Commission Implementation the dearness allowance computation formula & the base year must be changed, the computation formula & base year changed in the earlier pay commission also

 

Pay Commission Base Year
3rd Pay Commission 1960 =100
4th Pay Commission 1982=100
5th Pay Commission 1982=100
6th Pay Commission 2001=100
7th Pay Commission 2011=100  (expected)

 

During September 1st week JCM Staff side Secretary writes letter to Ministry of Finance with the subject “Future computation of Dearness Allowance and adoption base index figure to Revised Minimum Wage”, in this letter Union demands to grant of 3% dearness allowance with effect from 1.7.2016, even though there is no official announcement from the government. Even all the state government employees are waiting for the announcement from the Central government.

 

And again last week Union writes letter to the Secretary, Ministry of Finance to grant the dearness allowance at the earliest.

 

Dearness allowance from 1.7.2016 should be 3%

 

Dearness Allowance (DA) Formula after 7th Pay Commission (assumption)

=((12 Months Average of AICPIN)-261.4)*100/261.4)

 

All the government employees are eagerly waiting for the announcement from the government. As per the source the dearness allowance announcement will be released before Diwali festival. Hope this announcement will be a Diwali gift for Central government employees.
