Expected DA from July 2014 - Looks like the curiosity surrounding the expected DA is fast receding


Expected DA from July 14 - Looks like the curiosity surrounding the expected DA is fast receding..!

One of the possible reasons for the dampening interest could be the fact that unlike last time, there is not going to be a DA hike. Although it is very well known that the hike is based on price rise and inflation, it probably feels to them as if something was lost.

This time there is no double-digit increase. It is only going to be a single-digit hike.

At the most, one can expect an increase of 7%. That too is not for sure. All that depends on the soon to be announced AICPIN points for balance months.

After announcing the second additional DA for the year 2014, there are only two instalments left. With the instalments of January 2015 and July 2015, the 6th CPC comes to a close.

The next additional DA will be based on the 7th CPC.

Additional Dearness Allowance formula could be changed in the 7th CPC. They could announce a new Base Year. There could also be a change in the 115.76 yardstick. Nothing can be said for certain this time.

There is already a proposal to change the Labour Bureau Base Year from ‘CPI-IW 2001=100’ to ‘CPI-IW 2015 =100’.  The current series of CPI-IW with base 2001=100 was constructed on the basis of employment data in seven sectors namely, Registered Factories, Mining, Plantations, Ports & Docks, Public Motor Transport, Electricity Generation & Distribution Establishments and Railways sector. The current series comprises of a basket of about 370 items and 289 price collection markets spread across 78 centres of the country.

The new series of CPI-IW will cover 7 sectors and 88 cities in 27 states have been selected for the new recommendation of CPI-IW (2015-100). It is worth mentioning that a special Standing Tripartite Committee (STC) under the chaired by Prof. G.K. Chadda has been created in this regard.

Annual Increment for Central Govt. Employees - Comparison table between 5th & 6th CPC


An overview about Central Government Employees’ Increment

‘Increment’ is definitely one of the most popular words in the Central Government employee’s dictionary. It is a known fact that each year, without fail, increment brings considerable raise in salary for Central Govt. employees.

Until about the 5th CPC, there was no major change in the increment system. But, the 6th CPC brought in landmark reforms in the increment system.

Until then, increments were given in the form of a consolidated amount. The 6th CPC recommended that it be calculated on percentage basis. The Central Government ordered that it be calculated at 3% of the employee’s basic pay with effect from 1.1.2006.

The CG employees didn’t realize how useful this was going to be. They thought it wouldn’t amount for much. It was Rs.75 for Rs. 3050 and revised to Rs. 210 for Rs.7000 with simple calculation.

But that was not the end of the story. It was only after a number of years that they realized the true impact of this reform. Let us explain the benefits with an example:

Let us consider the examples of A, and B, two employees who had joined the Central Government services: In five years of getting recruited, B gets a promotion. A gets a promotion three years after B.

On the basis of the 6th CPC :

Can you understand the difference now?

In 6th CPC the difference between ‘A’ and ‘B’ will be Rs.70 only, whereas in 5th CPC it will be Rs.300.

The Junior doesn’t have to worry that the senior has a tremendous advantage over him. In the past, the Junior wouldn’t be able to attain the Senior’s basic pay until retirement.
