Railway Board Order - TRIBAL AREA ALLOWANCE to Railway Employees


RBE No. 52/2013

No. F(E)I/2013/AL-4/4

New Delhi, Dated 31.05.2013

The General Managers,
All Indian Railways/Production Units,
(As per Mailing List).

Sub: Tribal area Allowance

The issue of payment of Tribal Area Allowance to railway employees was examined recently in context of a parliament question and it was found that the position with regard to payment of Tribal Area allowance varies widely on different Zonal railways. While some Zonal Railways have been paying Tribal Area Allowance in some Scheduled / Tribal areas, other railways have discontinued the allowance. This may be in some cases due to State Governments having discontinued the payment of such allowance to their employees in some areas, ordue to non-availability of updated lists of Scheduled/Tribal Areas where State Governments are paying it to their employees, with the Railways, Railway Board, etc.

2. It is, therefore, advised that payment of Tribal Area Allowance to Railway employees, especially during the last ten years may be reviewed on your Railway and it may be checked whether it has been paid in those areas where State Governments have been paying the same to their employees. In case it has been discontinued, even though admissible under the rules, corrective steps may be taken in this regard, at your end under intimation to this office. Also, Board may be advised of the reasons for discontinuation of Tribal Area Allowance in the are as failing under your Railway’s jurisdiction where payment of this allowance by Railways has been discontinued in the past.

3. It has also been decided by Board that henceforth General Managers of Zonal Railways may as certain the areas from the State Governments where the Tribal Area Allowance is being paid by State Governments and sanction Tribal Area Allowance to eligible employees on their Railways subject to fulfilment of conditions for payment of the allowance as laid down in Board’s letters no.PC-IV/87/Imp/AL-1 dated 30.07.1987 & P(E)I/89/AL-4/2 dated 24.06.1991.

4. A complete review may be sent to Board within 15 days.

Expected DA (Dearness Allowance) from July 2013 to CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

Expected DA (Dearness Allowance) from July 2013 to CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

Since the implementation of 6CPC from 1-1-2006, the consumer price index number for industrial worker is not coming down ever but it is increasing month by month. Similarly the rate of dearness allowance paid to central government employees also increasing at the interval of every six months period. The rate of dearness allowance was at zero level on 01-01-2006. After six years from implementation of 6CPC, now the dearness allowance stands at 80% level. The average increase in the dearness allowance is at the rate of 13% per year. Actually there is nothing to rejoice over the increase of dearness allowance. The Dearness allowance is nothing but the reflection of consumer price index.
Likewise the consumer price index is determined by increase in the prices of basket of identified essential commodities. The increase of CPI number is not good any way for either the government employees or common people. Whatever the money the central government employees are supposed to get from the dearness allowance hike will be swallowed by the essential commodities for which they have to spend every month, since the prices of all the essential commodities are increasing at the alarming rate.

Now everyone eyes at the expected dearness allowance from July 2013. It is now 80 percent of AICPI Numbers from which the rate of DA has to be arrived has been released. The AICIN for Industrial Workers for two more months are yet to be released to confirm the exact rate of Dearness Allowance going to be approved by the central government. The average of AICPIN for IW from the month of July 2012 to June 2013 will determine the rate of dearness allowance to be paid from July 2013. So look at the Consumer price Index numbers from June 2012 given below:

MonthJul 2012Aug 2012Sep 2012Oct 2012Nov 2012Dec 2012Jan 2013Feb 2013Mar 2013Apr 2013May 2013Jun 2013

The formula for calculating dearness allowance is:
( Avg of AICPI for the past 12 months – 115.76)*100/115.76

To find out the average CPI for 12 months we need remaining two months CPI numbers. Let us assume that if the remaining two months AICPI numbers stands at 226 levels, the average AICPI for 12 months is 220.0833.

If we apply this in the formula given above the answer is = 90.120

From this it is now very much clear that, even though if there is no change in the position of AICPI numbers for remaining two months, if it happened to continue in the same level of 226 points for remaining two months, the increase in the rate of dearness allowance will be 10% for the next six months starts from July 2013. According to this, the expected dearness allowance from July 2013 for central government employees will not be less than 90% level. So it is expected that the dearness allowance will be increased from existing 80% to 90% level from July 2013. With this 10% increase in dearness allowance, the annual increment for the year 2013 also will be granted for all the central government employees from July 2013.
