45% Dearness allownace from July 2010?

45% Dearness allownace from July 2010. All India Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers for June 2010 on the basis of 2001 valued as 174 by the Labour Bureau. So we can confirm that the Dearness Allowance (D.A) for Central Government Employees will be 45%, a 10% increase from the current D.A of 35%.

This consumer price index is mainly shows the rise in prices of essential commodities like rice, wheat, edible oil, curry powders, fruits, vegetables and even it includes the rice in bus fare and electricity charges etc. The D.A increase is provided for government employees to beat the price rice.

According to the 6th Central Pay Commission recommendations all government employees got annual increment of minimum 3% of basic on July 2010. Now the D.A Increase, when declared will be an added advantage and the amount of money will be more than the amount of increment. When the D.A increases the Transport allowance also will be increased by the same percentage. And if the price rise continues in the same ratio the next D.A will cover 50% and according to the 6th c.p.c some daily allowances such as Children Education Allowance, Child Care Allowance, Washing Allowance, Cycle Allowance, Cash Handling Allowance, Conveyance Allowance, Split Duty Allowance etc., will be raised by an additional 25%. So they may get more money benefit than mere a D.A increase.
