7th Pay Commission DA Calculation
Calculation of Dearness allowance for Central Government employees and Pensioners
DA calculation is very simple. But, we need the CPI for six months for additional DA from January to June and July to December.
Dearness allowance is calculated based on All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers Base Year 2001=100. The index has been released by the Labour Bureau for every month.
6th CPC DA Percentage = (12 Monthly Average – 115.76) / 115.76 x 100 (ignore decimals)
