Expected D.A for Central Government Employees is 6% from January 2011

The recently published (Labour Bureau, Govt. of India ) All India Consumer Price Index Number (for November) and AICPIN of past months shows that the Dearness Allowance payable to the Central Government staff with effect from January 2011 may be near about 6 percent.

The AICPIN of November, 2010 is 182 and the AICPIN for other months were 178 for July & August – 2010, 179 for September – 2010 and 181 for October - 2010

Even if there is a high price for onion and vegetables the consumer price index will not be more than 185 and the D.A, which is connected with consumer price index, may not be more than 6%.

But as per the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, some special allowances such as Children Education Allowance, Child Care Allowance, Washing Allowance, Cycle Allowance, Cash Handling Allowance, Conveyance Allowance, Split Duty Allowance and some advances such as Festival allowances and Flood Advance will be increased by 25% more as the D.A will be crossed the limit of 50%.

Even if the Dearness allowance will not be much high as per the D.A of July, 2010 (10%) the 25% increase of the above mentioned allowances will give a relief against the increasing cost of related expenses.
