Expected DA July 2014 – Finally it concludes at 7%

Expected DA July 2014 – Finally it concludes at 7%
As anticipated by all, the expected DA from July 2014 concluded at 7%.
With the announcement of the AICPI(IW) points for the month of June, the calculation of the additional dearness allowance for central government employees and pensioners from July onwards have ended. The percentage of Dearness allowance and Dearness relief to be paid from July 2014 will be increased by 7%.

Based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, in order to meet the rising expenses of essential commodities and inflation, dearness allowance is given twice every year to the central government employees – from January to June and from July to December – calculated on the basis of the All India Consumer Price Index of Industrial Workers Base Year 2001=100.

The most recently released AICPIN points for the month of June have increased by two and now stands at 246. Since the AICPIN points have increased by two, the dearness allowance percentage arrived at 107.25, is to be calculated, after ignoring the decimal points, as 7%. This will be officially announced by the Central Government after approval of Unionn Cabinet committee in the month of September.

The last two installments, 10% dearness allowance was being paid to the employees. Many wonder why it has come down to 7% this time. There are two main reasons for this, one is AICPIN points, and another is the method of calculating DA. One has to also keep in mind the fact that dearness allowance of 10% was also given based on the same calculations.

The fact is, the next two additional dearness allowances (Expected DA from January 2015, and expected DA from July 2015) are not likely to cross 5%.

The method of calculating dearness allowance is given in detail in the table below:

Hall No. 201 & 205, Vijay Stambh,
Zone I, M.P. Nagar, Bhopal- 462023
No. 5/Assn/GS/2014 Dated 10th July, 2014
The Member Secretary,
7th Central Pay Commission,
P.O. Box No. 4599, Hauz Khas P.O,

Subject: Submission of Memorandum in respect of Administrative Staff.

Respected Sir,

On behalf of All India Association of Administrative Staff (Non Gazetted), Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, I am submitting herewith the Memorandum in connection with the existing and proposed pay structure of the Administrative Staff of National Sample Survey Office.

Here, we have to submit that successive Pay Commissions have not considered uniformity in the pay scales of Administrative Staff of Government of India. These staff have been recruited centrally by the Staff Selection Commission and sent to various Departments with different nomenclature & promotional channel.

Hence it is requested that 7th Pay Commission may bring uniformity in the pay scales of Administrative Staff. The pay scale recommended for each cadre in the Administrative branch should be in accordance with the responsibility actually attached with the posts. The duties and responsibilities attached to the LDC & UDC in subordinate offices are not in accordance with the DoPT manual. LDCs in subordinate offices have been allocated major section with work of higher quality worth to do by UDC/Assistants. Thus the demand for the upgradation of the pay scale of LDC/UDC & Assistant may please be considered.

It is also bring to your kind notice that we may submit a Supplementary Memorandum if it is found necessary.

We look forward for your sympathetic consideration, particularly for those Pay Scales which involve upgradation /revival of post.

Yours faithfully
(TKR Pillai)
General Secretary
