DA from July 2016 in 7th pay Commission is 2% or 3% is yet to be confirmed

It seems that the DA from July 2016 in 7th Pay Commission is not yet finalized by Central Government. There is confusion persists on the rate of Dearness Allowance to be paid from 1st July 2016 in revised Pay . The AICPIN average for the year 2015 to be taken as Base Index for calculation of DA in 7th CPC as the DA has been neutralized to arrive the revised Pay.

The actual AICPIN Average for 2015 is 261.33. As per this AICPIN average, the DA to be paid at the rate of 2% from July 2016 in 7th CPC . But the NCJCM has contended that it should be paid at the rate of 3%.

The NCJCM staff side said that as per the practice of fraction is being ignored, 0.75 is ignored from actual DA 125.75 as on 1st January 2016. Since the 125% DA was merged to revise the 7th CPC pay, Accordingly, the AICPIN average of 2015 has to be revised to 260.46 from 261.33 to arrive the exact rate of DA of 125% .

It is obvious that the NCJCM Staff Sides claim has sufficient merits to be considered favorably by the Government. In that case, the DA to be paid from July 2016 will be 3%.

The NCJCM Staff Side should be appreciated for this timely intervention and effort.

The central Government need to take decision in this regard soon, as it has been passed third week of September. Usually the announcement of DA for July every year will be made in the first or second week of September.

Union leaders, so as to save their ill gotton wealth, backstabbed us

DA due from 1-7-2016 should be 3% and there should be no doubt about it. Historically, while calculating DA, the leftover fraction of previous 6 months is carried forward. Points equivalent to 125% DA granted from 1-1-2016 is 260.46. June 2016 average point is 269.00. Thus DA is payable for the difference, i.e. 269-00-260.46 = 8.54 points. Divide this by 260.46 and we get 3.28%. Carry forward the fraction and the DA due from June 2016 is 3% and NOT 2%.
