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.

REVISION OF DA CALCULATION FORMAT – INSTANT OF JUNE AND DEC, WE PROPOSED APRIL AND OCTOBER

REVISION OF DA CALCULATION FORMAT – INSTANT OF JUNE AND DEC, WE PROPOSED APRIL AND OCTOBER

It is a well-known fact that every six months, the Central Government increases the Dearness allowance for its employees during the months of January and July. The increased amount is calculated on the price index (CPI IW BY 2001=100) of essential commodities. Rise in the Dearness allowance is being calculated on the basis of the changes in the prices of the essential commodities during the periods between January and June and the period between July and December.

But, it takes around three months since the release of the price index for the months of June and December to arrive at the calculation for the increase in the Dearness allowance. With the result that the increase due from the month of July is being given only from the month of October and the amount due from January is being given only from the month of April.

And, because of this situation, the amount due for the left-behind period of two months is to be settled as arrears. Practical problems arise in the calculation of the arrears amount and also problem arises in clarifying the doubts of the beneficiaries. Pensioners especially, are more tensed up over this procedure.

To avoid this situation, the price index during the periods from November to April and from May to October can be taken into account and the increase in the Dearness allowance calculated based on the information relevant to these periods. The amount can be disbursed from the months of January and July as per this calculation so that there’s no due as arrears.

We imaginatively tested this method to find out the result. It was found out that there was no tangible change in the increase amount if calculated on the basis of the price index obtained during the months of April and October.

6th Central Pay Commission (2006 – 2015) – Why was it special?

6th Central Pay Commission (2006 – 2015) – Why was it special?

Six Pay Commissions were formulated by the Central Government until now. The 6th Pay Commission had some salient features that were never seen before. Let’s find out why this particular Pay Commission was so monumental.

The recommendations made by the previous five Pay Commissions were interrelated to each other. People who had studied these would know that despite the similarities, the recommendations were not exactly generous.

Weightage” was the most-frequently used terminology in all previous pay commissions. New employees wouldn’t be aware of this. Weightage was all about calculating a certain percentage of the basic pay and adding it to the new basic pay (Basic Pay Weightage, Fitment Weightage or Fitment Benefit). This was the method prescribed by the five Pay Commissions before.

Even more pathetic was “Increment Weightage”. Particularly the 5th Pay Commission didn’t consider all the increments that the employee had received. According to the recommendations of 5th Pay Commission, it was given on the basis of one out of three increments.

As well, those were the days when promotions were rare. For years, employees were getting meager amount as annual increment. Only disappointment remained because the employees felt as if their ten years’ progress was unfairly evaluated.

Since no significant changes were made in the calculation of DA in the 5th Pay Commission, for the entire ten years, percentage of Dearness Allowance had increased by only 74%.

Until the 5th Pay Commission, House Rent Allowance was given in four categories – 5%, 7.5%, 15%, and 30% or as consolidated amount.

Lack of generosity was also obvious in areas like Tuition Fees, Transport Allowance, and Leave Travel Concession.

The 6th Central Pay Commission was special because it was radically different from its predecessors.

“Grade Pay was introduced, and, although there were MACP confusions due to the new Hierarchy system, since its pluses outnumbered its minuses, we feel that there is nothing wrong in recollecting the good points that the Commission had recommended. This article will help the next generation employees understand why the 6th Pay Commission was so unique.”

Multiplication Factor : This is considered by many as a transparent approach.

Children’s Education Allowance : From a meager Rs.40 per month, it was raised to Rs.1000. This reflected genuine interest and concern about the future generation.

3% Increment : The decision to calculate the annual increment at 3% of the current basic pay continues to be applauded even now.

Transport Allowance : Although Convenience Allowance was clubbed with this, it was a good decision to have made the revision of transport allowance dependent on the dearness allowance.

Leave Travel Concession : Which was until then, given only for Class II travel, was elevated to AC- Tier III, and Tier II.

Child Care Leave : It was a blessing for female employees.

Military Service Pay : First time recommendation for the Armed Forces Personnel by 6th Pay Commission.

DA Calculation : The Dearness Allowance was calculated based on the All India Consumer Price Index published by Labour Bureau. Calculation method for arriving the percentage of additional Dearness Allowance was recommended by 6th CPC with important average index factor of 115.76 instead of 306.33. Dearness Allowance went up as high as 10% and earned an increase of about 120% in its ten years’ tenure.

Finally, All Central Government Employees Unions and Federations played a very important role in the revolutionary changes and liberal recommendations that were being offered to the employees. Let us not forget that it was our unified voice and determination that made it all possible.

7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?

7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?

 

Dearness Allowance is one of the important issues that the Pay Commission deals with. The calculation method that was recommended by the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the ones suggested by all the previous Pay Commissions. Dearness Allowance, which was increasing by 1 or 2% until the 5th Pay Commission suddenly shot up to the peak of double-digit numbers.

 

Until the 5th CPC, the Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers 1982 = 100 was used for calculating dearness allowance. From the 6th Pay Commission onwards, CPI (IW) 2001=100 was used for calculating the DA.

 

There was another crucial change that the 6th CPC made. It recommended that the Reference Base Index be changed from 306.33. As a result, 115.76 became the new Reference Base Index from 01.01.2006 onwards.

 

Will the 7th CPC introduce a new CPI (IW)? Or will it bring about changes in the Reference Base Index?

 

This is something that everybody wants to know.

 

Just watch the difference between 5th and 6th CPC DA Calculation methods…

 

 

5th CPC calculation method is given below…

 

The extant formula for calculation of DA till 1-1-2004 was:

 

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
——————————————————–  x 100 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

 

The Fifth Pay Commission had recommended that DA should be converted into DP each time the CPI increased by 50% over the base index. The Government merged 50% of DA with the
basic pay w.e.f. 1-4-2004. The formula for calculation of DA for the period from 1-7-2004 is:

 

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
{  ————————————————  x 100} – 50 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

 

6th CPC calculation method is given below…

 

(12 Monthly Average) – 115.76
——————————————————–      x 100 = percentage increase in prices
115.76

Expected DA from Jan 2015 – Comparison of DA Calculation from 2006 to 2014

Expected DA from Jan 2015 – AICPIN Points for September Released – Remains Unchanged at 253

Expected DA jan 2015

One of the most important department functioning under the Central Government is the Labour Bureau. The department releases a number of important statistics and conducts surveys. In the year 1872, the department had successfully conducted the population census of the entire country. This census gave not only the count of number of persons, but also the number of gainfully employed. Since then every census has thrown useful data on workers in different industries and occupations every 10 years. The bureau also releases official information, economic indicators like Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial, Agricultural and Rural Labourers; wage rate indices and data on industrial relations etc. that are followed by a number of government departments.

One such indicator is the monthly Consumer Price Index Numbers (Industrial Workers 2001=100), which is used to calculate the Dearness Allowance for Central Government employees. Prices of 24 essential commodities (from rice to bathing soap) are observed in 78 cities all over the country in order to calculate the average index of CPI(IW).

It is based on these statistics that, once every six months, the Centre announces Dearness Allowance for its employees. Based on the AICPIN(All India Consumer Price Index Numbers) between January and June, and between July and December, the Finance Ministry decides the percentage of hike in Dearness allowance and Dearness Relief according to the recommendations of 6th CPC and informs the Government. The Centre makes its decision after discussing the recommendation during the cabinet meeting.

Now, ‘Expected DA from Jan 2015′ is the first installment of next year and only three months’ data have been collected as of now, for the Dearness Allowance. Accurate D.A percentage can be calculated only after the remaining 3 months’ AICPIN points are announced.

But, we believe that based on October’s AICPIN points, we can conclude if the next D.A hike is going to be for 6% or 7%.

The Dearness Allowance announcements since 2006 have been tabulated and presented, as additional information.

FINANCE MINISTRY DA ORDER JAN 2014 -WHEN IT WILL COME-DA ARREARS CALCULATOR

FINANCE MINISTRY DA ORDER JAN 2014 -WHEN IT WILL COME-DA ARREARS CALCULATOR

FINANCE MINISTRY DA ORDER JAN 2014 – WHEN IT WILL COME

No one can deny the fact that DA is a very important allowance as of now. This applies to both state and central government employees. On the 28th of February 2014, 10 % DA increase was approved by the cabinet and then the announcement about the same came out. In the past, mostly, this announcement and the Finance Ministry order have come out in the month of March. Hardly, has this ever changed so far. So the finance ministry order on DA is expected to come soon.
After the order on the 10% DA is received, the corresponding DA value will be paid as arrears for the first two months and then it will paid along with the month’s salary. Similarly, every time when the DA touches 50%, some allowances can increase up to 25%. We have already got the benefits of the 50% DA increase. Now, as it has reached 100%, a formal announcement is expected to come out soon. Everyone can easily calculate the benefits that we’ll get from a 10% increase. However, for your convenience, I have attached a calculator to help you to find out how much you will get as two month’s arrears and the other benefits that you will get due to the DA increase.

New series of consumer price index – Base for calculation of Dearness Allowance

New series of consumer price index – Base for calculation of Dearness Allowance


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 Kodikunnil Suresh in the Lok Sabha today in reply to a written question.
