Enhanced DA after Retirement on 30th June and 31st December to be considered for Retirement Benefits

Shri. JVSR.Krishna raised an important issue in our comments forum. Considering the merits of this issue, we posted here to draw the attention of authorities concerned to take necessary action to address the grievances of similarly placed retiring government servants.

Dearness Allowance & Dearness Relief:

As per the prevailing conditions, Govt of India sanctioning DA once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. & 1st July. Based on consumer price index, due to raise in the inflation for the period of once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. to 30th June & 1st July to 31st December respectively DA being sanctioned to those Central Govt. employees and as DR to the Central Govt. Pensioners. This DA/DR is cumulatively added every month, for administrative convenience, it was being sanctioned once in 6 months. For those Central Govt. employees who were having DOB 1st of any month are being forcibly superannuated on the last working day of the preceding month. Particularly, those who were having DOB 1st Jan. & 1st July, though they have completed 6 months, sanctioned DA was not considered for calculating Retirement benefits viz. Gratuity & Leave encashment purpose.

Retired Government servants is entitled for revised rate of D.A

whether a retired Government servant is entitled for revised rate of D.A., which comes into force after such Government servant retires from service on attaining the age of superannuation.

As per the Honble. CAT judgement, DA was allowed for calculation of retirement benefits; to those retired on 30th June (DA was sanctioned next to their retirement date. The said case was appealed in Honble. High Court of A.P. the WP was dismissed, further, Govt. of India appealed as SLP in Honble. Supreme Court of India, there also it was dismissed.

Orders were issued for implementation of DA to the Central Govt. Servants, who were working in Accountant General Office, Hyderabad. The same was implemented.

Since, it is a common issue, individuals who were worked in various Departments of Central Govt. should not insisted that who ever will proceed litigation, it will be implemented. It shall be implemented across the board to all the employees to save the money & man power of Govt. of India to avoid litigations.

Notification on Dearness allowance (DA) this week

Notification on Dearness allowance (DA) this week

New Delhi: The Central government has announced to release of an additional instalment of 2 per cent of dearness allowance (DA) to central government employees and dearness relief to pensioner with effect from January 1, 2017.

Union Finance Ministry on Monday said that notification in this regard is expected to be issued this week.

The government is to notify its decision to give dearness allowance (DA) and dearness relief (DR) to 4 per cent from existing 2 per cent from January 1, 2017, benefiting 48.85 lakh is employees and 55.51 lakh pensioners.

The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley moved the cabinet note on March 16 for approval of releasing of an additional instalment of 2 per cent of dearness allowance (DA).

The DA/DR has been increased by 2 per cent over the existing rate of 2 per cent of the basic pay/pension to compensate for price rise and it is in accordance with the accepted formula based on the recommendation of 7th pay commission.

The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both dearness allowance and dearness relief would be Rs 5,857.28 crore per annum and Rs 6,833.50 crore in the Financial Year 2017-18 (for a period of 14 months from January, 2017 to February, 2018).

The hike in the DA/DR is as per the agreed methodology of taking average of Consumer Price Index-Industrial Workers for the past 12 months.

The Confederation of Central Government Employees had termed it as a meagre hike in view of actual rise in cost of living index saying the CPI-IW was far from reality.

The union had also said that there was a lot of variation in the rates of price rise of commodities by Ministry of Agriculture and CPI-IW.

Most of the Central Government employees feel that the enhancement of DA/DR is meager

Most of the Central Government employees feel that the enhancement of DA/DR is meager

Calculation of DA/DR based on AICPIN only

“Calculation of Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for Central Government Employees and Pensioners based on the methodology prescribed by the recommendations of Central Pay Commission”

Dearness Allowance is issued twice a year and the Seventh Pay Commission has adopted the same calculation methods that were prescribed by the Sixth Pay Commission.

The same series of the All-India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base 2001=100) are used for the calculation of DA/DR to be continued. The 7th CPC recommendations are implemented from 1.1.2017 and no DA from 1.1.2017 to 1.7.2017. And from 1.7.2017, 2% DA calculated as per the same formula recommended by 6th CPC. And then now, same calculation with the Consumer Price Index, the figure of two percent was arrived.

Most of the Central Government employees feel that the enhancement of DA/DR is meager.

The Central Government had nothing to do with the Dearness Allowance issued to the Central Government employees in the past, which were as high as 10 percent. Similarly, the government is in no way connected with the current announcement of two percent DA/DR.

The same AICPIN (CPI IW BY2001=100) adopted for the calculation of Dearness Allowance to draw their pay in the pre-revised pay scale of 5th and 6th CPC. For 6th CPC, 4% Dearness Allowance was calculated on the basis of the same method. In other words, it will be expected to increase from 132 percent to 136.

The Dearness Allowance is calculated based on the changes in the prices of essential commodities in 75 cities and towns in India, over a period of six months. The monthly data, called the AICPIN, are released each month, by the Labour Bureau under the Ministry of Labour and Employment.

Central Government employees and Pensioners are not only getting the DA and DR, also employees working under Bank, CPSE etc,. The CPI(I-W) series are used for the calculation of DA for Bank Staff and IDA for CPSE employees. Almost the same enhancement of DA will adopt for the employees working in State Governments. Consumer Price Index will impact on the salaries and pension of more than 2 crore employees and pensioners directly.

Just watch the difference of DA amount between 6th and 7th CPC:

As on 1.1.2016 As on 1.7.2016 DA from 1.1.2017
6th CPC Basic Pay 10,000 (2400GP) 10,300 412 (4%)
7th CPC Matrix Pay 26,300 27,100 542 (2%)

2% Dearness Allowance Hike Likely For Central Government Employees From January 1

2% Dearness Allowance Hike Likely For Central Government Employees From January 1

The Centre is likely to announce a hike of 2-4 per cent in dearness allowance for its about 50 lakh employees and 58 lakh pensioners later this month.

New Delhi: The Centre is likely to announce a hike of 2-4 per cent in dearness allowance for its about 50 lakh employees and 58 lakh pensioners later this month.

Dearness allowance and dearness relief are provided to employees and pensioners to neutralise the impact of inflation on their earnings. The labour unions, however, are not happy with the proposed hike saying it would not be able to offset the real impact of price rise.

“The dearness allowance as per the agreed formula by the Centre works out to be 2 per cent which would be effected from January 1, 2017,” Confederation of Central Government Employees President K K N Kutty told PTI.
However, Kutty expressed dissatisfaction over such a “meagre” hike saying that the consumer price index for industrial workers (CPI-IW) which is an agreed benchmark for increasing dearness allowance is far from reality.

He said that there is difference between the quantum of price rise of commodities ascertained by the Labour Bureau and the Ministry of Agriculture.

CPI-IW is an imaginary number due to poor quality of data collection by Labour Bureau and it is far from reality, he claimed.

The average CPI-IW to be taken into account for raising DA is 4.95 per cent from January 1 to December 31, 2017. Since the government has already hiked the dearness allowance by 2 per cent in October last year from July 1, 2016, it will now raise it further by 2 per cent.

As per an agreed upon formula, the Centre hikes the allowance taking 12-month average of retail inflation. The government does not consider the price rise rate beyond a decimal point for deciding the rate of the dearness allowance.

Therefore, despite the fact that the hike works out to be 2.95 per cent, the government will ignore the rate of price rise beyond decimal point and increase the DA by 2 per cent.

The dearness allowance is paid as proportion of the basic pay of the central government employees.

Kutty said that the federation in the next meeting of the national council would make a case for considering the fractions while fixing DA.

The national council is an apex forum functioning under the Department of Personnel and Training where unionists and senior official discuss issues concerning central employees.

Earlier last year, the government hiked DA by 6 per cent to 125 per cent of basic pay. The DA was later merged into the basic pay following the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission award.

At present the Central government employees and pensioners are entitled to 2 per cent dearness allowance, which was effected from July 1, 2016.
