Expected DA from Jan 2012 is 66% ie 7% hike or more

Expected DA from Jan 2012 :
Expected Dearness allowance from January 2011
In coming months the trend of the dearness allowance
certainly will go up.
We have made some calculation sheet to bring the
percentage of dearness allowance on the end of December
and the AICPIN is used in the calculation an average rates of
197, 198, 199, 200 and 201 for the balance of three
The expected DA will be minimum of 7% to increase from
January 2011. There will be remote chance to increase in DA
above 7%. If the AICPIN will increase above the average of
200, the DA will be go up to 66%.

Dearness Allowance to all categories of Central Government
employees is being sanctioned by the Government twice in a
year, on 1st January and 1st July based on the increase in
the average monthly All India consumer price index and it is
granted to compensate the price hike above 536 points
(Base Year 1982= 100) 115.76 Points (Base Year
2001= 100). The average increase is calculated up to
December for grant of DA from 1st January and up to June
for grant of DA from 1st July.
DA is calculated on the basic pay (plus NPA and stagnation
increment). Special Pay, Personal Pay etc. are not taken into
account for this purpose.
Dearness allowance calculation is based on AICPIN (IW). The
statistics has been published by Labour Bureau in the last
date of every month for subsequet months. The authentic
department of Labour Bureau under Ministry of Labour &
Employment computing the Consumer Price Index Numbers
for Industrial Workers on base 2001= 100, for this
calculation, more than 80 selcted places in over all India and
an average monthly consumer prices of 24 essential
commodities are taken for the finalise the index.
We are all know that the DA is announcing once in six
months i.e. , January and July of every year. The index has
been taken for the calculation of DA from January to Jnue
and July to December. The first instalment was announced in
march and the second instalment on September, the next
instalment for the year 2012 will be announced by March.
For exact calculation of additional Dearness allowance, the
AICPIN-IW received only for two months of July and August.
After knowing the index value for remaining four months
only, we can compute exact the percentage of additional
Dearness allowance from Jan, 2012, even though we can
predict with reasonably by our expreience in this field, it
may be enhanced minimum of six percent.
