DA from July 2016 set to increase by 6% or 7% for Pre Revised Pay (Pre-7th CPC Pay)

On the basis of All India Consumer Price Index for the period from July 2015 to April 2016 and assumed indices for May and Jun 2016, DA for Central Government Employees in Pre-revised pay (6th CPC) and DA from July after implementation of 7th Pay Commission have been estimated

DA-Pre-7th-CPC-Pay

DA from July 2016 set to increase by 6% or 7% on the basis of All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) with base year 2001=100, for Pre revised Pay (Pay prior implementation of 7th Pay Commission)

DA from July 2016 – An analysis – Labour Bureau, Govt of India has released the Consumer Price Index (IW) for the month of April 2016.

Having actual All India Consumer price index for 10 months in hand, out of AICPI-IW needed for calculation of DA, an attempt has been made here to estimate the said DA from July 2016.

This DA estimation is based on Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year 2001=100 which is being followed presently for calculation of Dearness Allowance applicable for Central Government Employees, Defence personnel and Pensioners.

7th Pay Commission has also recommended that the same consumer price Index could be retained for granting Dearness Allowance.

Here is the extract of analysis and recommendations of 7th Pay Commission relating to Dearness Allowance

“The VICPC had recommended that the National Statistical Commission may be asked to explore the possibility of a specific survey covering government employees exclusively, so as to construct a consumption basked representative of government employees and formulate a separate index. This has, however, not been done.

Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance.”

Hence, it is assumed that CPI-IW with the base year 2001=100 would be followed with effect from January 2016 on implementation of 7th Pay commission report as far as Dearness Allowance is concerned.

In that case, DA from July 2016 after implementation of 7th Pay Commission has to be calculated using the following DA Calculation Formula

[ (Average of Consumer Index for the period from July -2015 to Jun-16) – (Average All India Consumer Price Index for 2015) X 100] / Average All India Consumer Price Index for 2015

Based on the above formula, after merger of DA of 125% with Basic Pay, DA from January 2016 would be calculated as 0% and Likely DA from July 2016 after implementation of 7th Pay Commission will be 2% or 3%

DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay

CPI-IW from July 2015 to April 2016

Month Actual AICPI-IW
July-2015 263
Aug-2015 264
Sep-2015 266
Oct-2015 269
Nov-2015 270
Dec-2015 269
Jan-2016 269
Feb-2016 267
Mar-2016 268
Apr-2016 271
May-2016 yet to be released
Jun-2016 yet to be released

Scenario 1: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be less than 6%

Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 working out to be less than 6% is very remote due to the fact that the index should be getting reduced by at least 4 points in any one of the coming two months from the previous month and further reduction of at least 3 points in the other month.

In other words index for May 2016 should be getting reduced by 4 points to 267 and also witness further reduction by 3 points to 264, for increase in DA from July 2016 less than 6%. If index for May 2016 registers not more than 3 point reduction then index for June 2016 has to reduce at least by 4 points in order get the less than 6% increase in DA from July 2016

Calculation of DA from July 2016 based on CPI(IW) from July 2015 to June 2016

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269
+270+269+269+267+
268+271+267@+264@)-
115.76]X100/115.76
=130% (5% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016
DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+268@+264@)
-115.76]X100/115.76
=130%-125% (5% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

Scenario 2: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be 6%

Even if index gets lower by 3 points during both of these months compared to previous month, viz., May 2016 registers 3 point reduction from April and further three point reduction in June 2016 compared to May 2016, increase in DA from July 2016 will be 6%.

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+268@+265@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=131% -125% (6% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

We are of the opinion that increase in DA from July 2016 registering at least 6% is quite possible as chances for CPI (IW) getting reduced to less than 265 from the present level 271 in two months is very remote.

Scenario 3: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be 7%

If CPI (IW) gets increased at least by 2 points in any one of the coming two months and by 1 point increase in the other month compared to previous month, then DA from July 2016 will be poised for an increase of 7%.

In other words, if consumer price index for May 2016 and June 2016 witnesses at least 2 point increase and further 1 point increase respectively or vice versa, increase in DA from July 2016 is calculated to be 7%

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+273@+274@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=132% -125% (7% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016
DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+272@+273@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=132% -125% (7% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

Considering the inflationary trend shown by 3 point increase in April 2016, this scenario may become a reality. In that case DA from July 2016 will be 7%

Scenario 4: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out more than 7%

In order to get an increase in DA from July 2016 more than 7%, CPI(IW) for both May 2016 and June 2016 should witness at least 7 point increase from the present level of 271. If any one of this month registers lesser increase than 7 points then the other month has to compensate the same by registering increase of index by more than 7 points.

It is apparent that possibility for such an increase in CPI(IW) is not at all Possible. Hence we can conclude that increase in DA from July 2016 may not be more than 7%

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

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.

Central Government to release new series of CPI inflation in February

New series of Consumer Price Index from February 2015

According to the news paper report, the Central Government to release new series of CPI inflation in February…

To present a more accurate and realistic price situation, the government will release next month a new series of Consumer Price Index (CPI) with 2012 as base year for computing retail inflation rate.

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) is in the process revising the Base Year from 2010=100 to 2012=100 so that the gap between Price Reference Year (Base Year) and the Weight Reference Year has been minimised. The first series (revised) would be compiled for January which will be released on February 12 and from January 2016 onwards, inflation rates would be compiled using the actual CPI of the revised series.

Besides, the government has notified a number of methodological improvements have been introduced in the revised series. Prices of Antyodaya Anna Yojanna (AAY) have also been included in addition to Above Poverty Line (APL) & Below Poverty Line (BPL) prices being taken in the existing series.

The weight of food and beverages would be 45.86 in the new series compared to 47.58 in 2010 series for national index. The weight of fuel and light segment would be 6.84 in the new series which is 9.49 in the 2010 series. The weight of clothing and footware segment would be increased to 6.53 from 4.73.

The weight of housing will also be increased to 10.07 from 9.77. Further, the weight of pan, tobacco and intoxicants will be increased to 2.38 from 2.13 in 2010 series. Similarly the weight of miscellaneous will also be increased to 28.32 from 26.31 in the new series.

The number of priced items has been changed from 437 to 448 in rural and from 450 to 460 in urban at all India level. In the revised series, 11 new priced items have also been added, without dropping any item, in rural sector at all India level. In case of urban, 7 priced items have been dropped and 17 new priced items have been added.

Dearness Allowance linked to Consumer Price Index against inflation

Dearness Allowance linked to Consumer Price Index against inflation

General Secretary of Confederation for Karnataka State Shri P.S.Prasad has written an article on his blog about the Consumer Price Index for the purpose of calculating Dearness allowance to Central Government employees and Pensioners…

The detailed report of article has been reproduced and given below for your information…

 

DA & CPI UNDER ATTACK

 

The Consumer Price Index is the main base for calculation of Dearness Allowance for the Central Government and State Government Employees and also the Industrial and Bank Employees.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is calculated using following steps:
a) Market prices are collected for 252 items by the Officials of Department of Statics and Department of Posts. These prices of that item & place are sent to Central processing unit from 78 centres all over India ( which are enclosed for your reference).
b) The all India weights given the each category of items such as food 49.71%, housing 9.77 %, fuel 9.49% , footwear O.68%, transportation 7.5%, Medical 5.31%, Personnel care 2.92 % & Miscellaneous 26.31% total 100% . CPI points are determined using this all India weights and prices of the 252 items. (which are enclosed for your reference).
Now from the angle of Employees point of view following changes in all India weights should be brought.
a) Housing should be given as 15% instead of just 9.77 %.
b) Medical should be increased to 15% from 5.31 %.
c) The Miscellaneous items should be reduced to just 5% instead of 26.31 %
The prices have risen by over 200% in last 61/2 years, whereas the CPI has shown an increase from 115 points in Jan 2006 to 235 points in July 2013 that means an increase of 120 points and the actual DA is only 92%. There is fault in the calculation of CPI itself apart from present DA formula , as undue all India weights is given for some items such as miscellaneous items such as 26% whatever increase in prices of the food, fuel, transportation, housing are nullified by these 26% decrease in prices or marginal increase in miscellaneous items.
The Employees are not getting the right DA and thus they are not compensated by the real increase in prices which are used for daily needs.
A new series for the calculation of the Consumer Price Index is under preparation by the Government of India. For this purpose, Government has set up a Standing Tripartite Committee (STC) to advise the Government on issues pertaining to the Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (New Series).
There are two aspects in this move we should be doubly carefull.
1) There is vast difference between the real price increase and CPI thus an Employee is deprived of the real DA.
2) The Government of India is thinking that the CPI is bloated or wrong that has made burden on the financial burden on them hence it wants to reduce its expenditure by modifying the CPI as a result of this what DA we used to get 10% half yearly and this year by 20%, this can be avoided by next year, hence it is seriously considering the aspect of revising the All India weights of many items such as food which is at 59% to 30%. By this the whole CPI increase will be limited to just 8 to 9 points in a year rather than 25 points in a year by this we get only 3 to 4 % DA every six months rather than 10% DA which we are used to get due to high inflation and drastic rise in prices.
Now the statements issued by Government of India officials ie Reserve Bank Governor Shri D.Subbarao & Shri Kaushik Basu, Chief Economic Advisor, Ministry of Finance, which is enclosed indicate this stand. Instead of employees friendly CPI they want a Government of India friendly CPI.
The wages of CG employees are determined by principle of need based minimum wages as per table 2.21 of 6th CPC report where in only a few items are chosen rather than 252 items chosen by CPI.
I request one and all to be serious about this issue otherwise the Employees will suffer in a long run regarding wrong calculation of CPI and DA issue.
Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary
9480066620.
Please find enclosures ;
Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India has decided to prepare a new series of Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers.
For this purpose, Government has set up a Standing Tripartite Committee (STC) to advise the Government on issues pertaining to the Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (New Series).
The STC will go into details of various parameters that are taken into consideration for updation of the base year such as the weighting diagram. consumption basket, selection of centres, sample size of establishments for price collection etc.
Government has no specific information about the skilled/semi-skilled worker outsourced by the Central Government /State Governments through contractors not being paid as per the CPI.
However, the Contract Labour Act, 1970 inter-alia, contains provisions for payment of wages to these category of workers.
The contract workers are also entitled to receive minimum wages as notified by the appropriate Governments from time to time.
This information was given by Minister of State for Labour & Employment Shri Kodikurinil Suresh in the Lok Sabha today in reply to a written question.
MUMBAI: The new series of consumer price index (CPI) is not enough for a robust statistical analysis of prices, Reserve Bank Governor D Suhharao said on Friday.
He also said the new CPI has an excess focus on food prices, which has a 50% weight. House rents, which account for 10%, are also a cause for concern given doubts over the efficacy of the prices, he added.
“The new CPI has only 19 data points which is not sufficient for a statistically robust analysis,” Subbarao, who demits office on September 5, said while speaking at the Statistics Day conference at the RBI headquarters here.
Dearness allowance link brings retail inflation figures under cloud
SMRITI SETH, ET Bureau Jul 19, 2011. 0347am 1ST.
http:/Iarticles.econom ictimes.indiatim es.com/20 11-07-1 9/news129790925_1 _cpi-iwretail-inflation-wpi-ancl-cpi
NEW DELHI There could be a systemic over-estimation of the retail inflation as measured by the consumer price index for industrial workers, or CPI-1W, as it forms the basis for revision in the dearness allowance of central government employees.
This retail measure of inflation has generally shown a wide divergence with the widely followed wholesale price index (WPI) inflation. “Since the people who collect data for the CPI get their salaries indexed by the same index it actually feeds into some tendency to bloat that,” said Kaushik Basu, Chief Economic Advisor, Ministry of Finance. The CPI-IW is compiled by the Labour Bureau and investigators are employed by state governments – directorate of economics and statistics – to collect the prices.
The index is used to decide the dearness allowance of central government employees, which creates the incentive for bloating up the index. ‘We have found a couple of items that occur in both the WPI and CPI collected by different agencies. We are now tracking these two to see it there is any bias in them. But there are no results as yet,” Basu said. “A team at the ministry of finance is looking at various aspects of inflation, this is one thing we are indeed looking at,” he said. The labour bureau has strongly denied any such possibility and insisted there was no form of manipulation whatsoever.
“Our system is fool proof, there are multiple levels of checks. There is no bias in the data collected,” said an official at the Labour Bureau. Even experts are skeptical of the possibility of such widespread coordination between all those involved in the process. “It may be true and there is an incentive to do that (unfairly bloat the CPI-IW), but one can’t say that without empirical prool “. said Arup Mura, labour and employment professor, IEG.
This needs a nexus, because unless all the officials coordinate it won’t be possible,” added Mitra. The CPI-IW and WPI have shown vastly diverging trends through the years. During 2009, when inflation rate as per the CPI-IW was actually rising above 11%, the WPI inflation rate was falling to negative rates.
Since January 1, 2008 the rate of dearness allowance for central government employees has risen from 12% to 51%, an increase of 39 percentage points. According to a Patnaik, professor, NIPFP, the divergence can be explained by the difference in baskets used for both the indices. She dismissed the collectors’ bias theory, saying, “in a study, we found that the prices for a particular commodity reported under CPI is in line with other sources like the NCDEX, ministry of agriculture data. So evidence doesn’t suggest a bias,” said Patnaik.

10 Household requisites 4.48 4.30 4.40
06 Miscellaneous 24.91 28.00 26.31

From the above it is quite clear there is no weightage for rural housing & Miscellaneous weightage is much more than required.
Which is effecting DA calculation.

AICPIN for June 2013, confirmed 90% DA from July 2013 and also indicates 7% minimum increase in Jan-2014

All-India CPI-IW for June, 2013 rose by 3 points and pegged at 231 (two hundred and thirty eight) and expected Dearness Allowance due from July, 2013 is unchanged in respect of previous month expectation of 90% means 10% increase in present DA.  See following table:-

Increase/ Decrease Index Month Base Year 2001 = 100 Total of 12 Months Twelve monthly Average % increase over 115.76 for   DA DA announced or will be announced
1 Nov-12 218 2490 207.50 79.25% 80%
1 Dec-12 219 2512 209.33 80.83%
2 Jan-13 221 2535 211.25 82.49% 82%
2 Feb-13 223 2559 213.25 84.22% 84%
1 Mar-13 224 2582 215.17 85.87% 85%
2 Apr-13 226 2603 216.92 87.38% 87%
2 May-13 228 2625 218.75 88.97% 88%
3 Jun-13 228 2645 220.42 90.41% 90%
Jul-13 Expected DA from July-2013 90%

Therefore DA from July, 2013 will be 90% and will be announced in September or October in this year.

This 3 point increase in June, 13 AICPIN has also confirmed minimum 7% increase in Dearness Allowance in Jan-2014.  Next two months’ AICPIN will give exact figure of expected DA.   This time calculation says that if no any increase occurred in next 6 months in AICPIN the 7% increase in expected DA of Jan-2014 is confirm.  See second table below:-

Increase/ Decrease Index Month Base Year 2001 = 100 Total of 12 Months Twelve monthly Average % increase over 115.76 for   DA DA announced or will be announced
2 May-13 228 2625 218.75 88.97% 88%
3 Jun-13 231 2648 220.67 90.62% 90%
0 Jul-13 231 2667 222.25 91.99% 91%
0 Aug-13 231 2684 223.67 93.22% 93%
0 Sep-13 231 2700 225.00 94.37% 94%
0 Oct-13 231 2714 226.17 95.38% 95%
0 Nov-13 231 2727 227.25 96.31% 96%
0 Dec-13 231 2739 228.25 97.18% 97%
Jan-14
Expected DA from Jan-2014
97%

Now the above table and growth trends in AICPIN and inflation also indicates 100% DA from Jan-2014 and 25% increase in allowance.

Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers

Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers


“Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001=100 are being compiled and maintained by Labour Bureau, Ministry of Labour & Employment in respect of All-India and 78 constituent centres. The All-India Index for CPI-IW is a weighted average index of centres’ indices. These indices are compiled on monthly basis and are released on the last working day of the succeeding month”.


CPI for Industrial Workers

The Labour Bureau compiles and maintains segment specific three different series of Index numbers viz. (i). Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001=100, (ii). Consumer Price Index Numbers for Agricultural Labourer on base 1986-87=100, (iii). Consumer Price Index Numbers for Rural Labourer on base 1986-87=100.
Besides, the Consumer Price Index encompassing the entire rural and urban population is compiled by the Central Statistics Office, Ministry of Statistics &Programme Implementation.
These indices measure relative changes in prices of selected goods and services consumed by indexed population over a period of time.
Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers

Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001=100 are being compiled and maintained by Labour Bureau, Ministry of Labour & Employment in respect of All-India and 78 constituent centres. The All-India Index for CPI-IW is a weighted average index of centres’ indices. These indices are compiled on monthly basis and are released on the last working day of the succeeding month.

Consumer Price Index Numbers for Agricultural and Rural Labourers

The Labour Bureau is also compiling CPI Numbers for Agricultural and Rural Labourers separately for 20 States and All-India. These indices are released on monthly basis by 20th of every succeeding month.

The all-India CPI for Industrial workers at the beginning of financial year 2012-13, i.e., in the month of April, 2012 was 205 with an increase of 1.99 per cent over the month March, 2012. This rise was mainly on account of Food Items and Vegetables in particular. The next highest increase of 1.92 per cent in the index was recorded during the month of July, 2012, attributed to food items, specifically cereals and vegetables.

In case of CPI-AL/RL, the proportionate change in monthly indices as compared to previous months was reported due to changes (rise/fall) in the prices of food items, particularly cereals & vegetables.
The headline inflation used as a macro economic indicator is based on Wholesale Price Index (WPI) compiled by the office of Economic Advisor, Department of Industrial Policy &Promotion, Ministry of Commerce & Industry. Inflation reflecting change in retail prices of goods and services consumed by the working population is measured with the help of CPI (IW). A comparative statement indicating the inflation rates during January, 2012 to January, 2013 in respect of WPI and CPI (IW) is given in the Annexure.

The Government has undertaken a series of policy measures aimed at curbing inflation. These measures, inter-alia, include appropriate monetary measures intended to have desired impact on the demand side. The monetary policy however had to take into account the overall economic situation as manifested in declining growth rate. Besides, necessary fiscal and administrative measures were undertaken to ensure desired effect on the overall supply situation. Some of the important fiscal and administrative measures are given below:

1. Fiscal Measures:
  •  Reduced import duties to zero in respect of wheat, onion, pulses, crude palmolein etc.
  • Duty-free import of white/raw sugar upto June 30, 2012. Presently the import duty for sugar has been kept at 10 per cent.
2. Administrative measures:
  • Ban on export of onion from time to time depending on the domestic situation.
  • Suspended Futures trading in rice, urad, tur, guar gum and guar seed.
  • Banned export of edible oils (except coconut oil and forest based oil) and edible oils in blended consumer packs upto 5 kg with a capacity of 20,000 tons per annum and pulses (except Kabuli chana and organic pulses and lentils up to a maximum of 10,000 tonnes per annum).
  • Imposed stock limits from time to time in the case of select essential commodities such as pulses, edible oil, and edible oilseeds.
The Minister of State for Labour & Employment Minister Shri Kodikunnil Suresh  gave this information in a written reply  in  Lok Sabha today.
