Expected DA Calculation starts from January 2017

People started to calculate expected DA from January 2017 as 7 Months AICPIN Points are released so far. The Labor Bureau has released Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers for the Month of July 2016 today. Already It is confirmed that Dearness Allowance from July 2016 might be 2% as per the revised DA calculation.

Expected-DA-from-January-2017

Now, see the 7th CPC DA calculation Formula.

DA calculation Expected DA from July 2016 in Sixth and 7th Pay Commission

There are three main factors which determine the increase in percentage of DA in every pay Commission

1.DA calculation Formula
2.AICPIN for Industrial Workers
3. Base Average Index

1. Formula for DA calculation

Expected-DA-from-July-2016

2. AICPIN for Industrial Workers

The Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) is an important statistical/economic indicator. It was first introduced on scientific lines with base 1960=100 which was based on the results of Family Living Survey conducted in 1958-59 at 50 industrially important centres. The series was then, updated on base 1982=100 and a revision in 1999-2000 has further updated the base on 2001=100. The current series of CPI-IW with base year 2001=100 covers 78 industrially important centers spread across the country

3. Base Average Index

After neutralization of DA to revise the Pay and Allowance in Every Pay Commission, the Base Average Index will be modified taking into the account of 12 Months AICPIN points of previous year to neutralization of DA

1. From 1996 onwards, the average base Index was 306.33 (with base 1982=100)
How 306.33 was arrived?

To calculate the DA in Fifth pay commission, the 12 Month Average of AICPIN for the year 1995 was taken. The 12 months AICPIN Average of 1995 was 306.33

2. From 2006 onwards, the Avarage Base Index is 115.76 (with Base 2001 = 100)
How 115.76 was arrived…?

The Government has developed a new series with base 2001, with effect from January 2006. Back data series with base 2001 can be generated using linking factor 4.63

So the AICPIN Average of 2005 (with base 1982=100) i.e 536 had to be modified using linking factor 4.63 to adopt the new series in DA calculation. Thus the Base Index Number 115.76 was arrived

3. For 7th Pay Commission what will be the Base Index…?

As the 7th Pay commission recommendations will be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016, the AICPIN average of 2005 will be the Base Index for calculation of DA for 7th Pay Commission

So formula for Calculation of DA in 7th Pay Commission is

Expected-DA

Now expectation turned towards January 2017 DA. We need 12 Months AICPIN from January 2016 to December 2016 to calculate the expected DA from January 2017. The 7 month AICPIN Points released so far is given below.

January :269
February :267
March :268
April :271
May :275
June :277
July :280

Remaining Five months AICPIN Points from August to December are Required to calculate the rate of DA from January 2017. But assuming the trend of AICPIN Index by following three possibilities we can arrive the percentage of increase in Dearness Allowance approximately.

Assumption 1

If the AICPIN for Industrial workers remain stationary at 280 for next five months

The increase in DA from January 2017 will be 5 %

So the Total DA to be paid to CG staff from January 2017 will be 7%

Assumption II

If the CPI Index fluctuates between 282 to 278 points, even then there will be an increase of 5% DA from Jan 2017

Assumption III

If the AICPIN increases steadily by 2 points for successive months from August 2016 to December 2016

Then the DA to be paid from January will be enhanced by 6 %

So the trend of AICPIN Index if goes with above expectation, 5% to 6% increase can be expected in DA from January 2017.

7th Pay Commission DA Calculation – Jan 2016 AICPIN starts with new episode of ‘Expected DA July 2016

7th Pay Commission DA Calculation – Jan 2016 AICPIN starts with new episode of ‘Expected DA July 2016’

“The first AICPIN points of 2016 will be released tomorrow”

The Dearness Allowance given to Central Government employees and Pensioners will henceforth be calculated on the basis of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations
from 1.1.2016.(Expects its recommendations to be implemented by the Government)

The first All India Consumer Price Index – CPI (IW) Base Year 2001=100, used for calculating the Dearness Allowance will be announced tomorrow by the Central Government.

The current DA, according to the 6th Pay Commission, began at zero on 01.01.2006, and ended at 125%. It will restart again at zero from 01.01.2016 onwards.
There is no Dearness Allowance for the six months from January to June 2016. 
From July 2016 onwards, the new and first Dearness Allowance will be announced based on the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. In other words, the Dearness Allowance for the six months between July and December 2016 will be based on the fluctuations in the prices of essential commodities, called the AICPIN points, between January and June 2016.
The 7th Pay Commission has not prescribed any dramatic changes in the method of calculation of the Dearness Allowance. Instead, the previous method is all set to continue.
But, final announcements will be made in this regard only after the Central Government makes its decisions clear.

Expected DA July 2015 to be finalized – May 2015 AICPIN to be announced today

‘Expected DA July 2015’ to be finalized – May 2015 AICPIN to be announced today

‘DA from July 2015’ will most likely be finalized today; DA calculation stands at nearly 6%, as of now.

The price of petrol and diesel is one of the most important factors that influence the prices of general commodities. Petrol and diesel prices had increased by 10 to 15% in the month of May. Experts believe that it will have a huge impact on the prices of essential commodities too.

The Labour Bureau calculates the AICPIN points based on the prices of essential commodities at 78 select towns and cities from all over the country. The Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) is an important statistical/economic indicator. It was first introduced on scientific lines with base 1960=100 which was based on the results of Family Living Survey conducted in 1958-59 at 50 industrially important centres. The series was then, updated on base 1982=100 and a revision in 1999-2000 has further updated the base on 2001=100.

The CPI (IW) Base Year 2001=100 index points for the month of May will be announced today. Based on today’s announcement, one can calculate, the Dearness Allowance that will be given from July onwards.

AICPIN points for the month of May to be announced Tomorrow

AICPIN points for the month of May to be announced Tomorrow

“The Ministry of Labour will announce the ‘All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers’ for the month of May, tomorrow; AICPIN indicates the rise and fall of prices of essential commodities across important towns and cities in the country”.

After significant changes in the Agricultural and Rural AICPIN points in the month of May, there is tremendous curiosity regarding the AICPIN points for the industrial workers. The index of Agricultural and Rural AICPIN had increased by 6 and 7 points to 811 and 816 respectively.

CPI (IW) BY 2001=100 points indicate the fluctuation of prices of essential commodities. If the CPI (IW) points increase, it leads to an increase in the percentage of additional Dearness Allowance for Central Government employees and Pensioners.

If the AICPIN for the month of May increases by 4 points, then the Dearness Allowance for July could be higher by 7%. In other words, from 113%, it could go up to 120%.

The AICPIN points of each month are calculated on the basis of the fluctuations in the prices of 24 commodities, including rice and wheat, in 78 selected cities and towns. The CPI (IW) BY 2001=100 of this month is released towards the end of the following month.

The present method of calculation was recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. From 01.01.2016 onwards, it will be calculated based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

Dearness Allowance: Centre to survey spending patters of working class to finalise CPI numbers.

Centre to survey spending patterns of working class

In a bid to understand the spending patterns and living conditions of working class, the Centre has decided to conduct a survey of workers’ family income and expenditure.

The survey, which will be conducted by the National Sample Survey Organisation, a Government of India body, will be used to finalise consumer price index (CPI) numbers for the working class. The CPI is the base for deciding dearness allowances (DA) of the working class.

“The Working Class Family Income and Exemption Survey-2015 will cover workers engaged in seven organised sectors of employment-registered factories, mines, plantations, ports & docks, public motor transport undertakings, electricity generating and distributing establishments, and railways,” an official from NSSO told Deccan Herald.

The survey will be conducted in 88 centres spreading across 28 states and union territories including Delhi, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. The survey will be conducted in eight places in Karnataka — Bengaluru, Belagavi, Chikkamagaluru, Davangere-Harihar, Hubballi-Dharwad, Kodagu, Mysuru and Mangaluru.
