Expected DA from January 2015 – The Next Episode Begins…!

Expected DA from January 2015 – The Next Episode Begins…!

The Centre has announced a  hike of 7% Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for Central Government employees and Pensioners, with effect from July 2014 on 4th of this month. Soon, Finance Ministry will issue appropriate orders for payment of Dearness allowance to all. As and when orders are published by the Ministry of Finance, we will be posted in our website immediately.

According to the fluctuation of price index past six months from Jan to Jun 2014, the additional Dearness allowance has been arrived as 7% only. It seems there are a few employees who are unhappy with the single-digit number because until then they have been getting double-digit DA hikes.

The disappointment also reflects the high expectations that people have from the Modi government. Our readers have been raising a number of questions in this regard. While the previous Manmohan Singh government had twice given them DA hike of 10%, why has Modi government given them only 7% increase?

First of all, the ruling party at the Centre has no direct impact on the DA calculations. DA is calculated on the basis of AICPIN points, which are based on price rise.

The current system of DA calculations, which is being done as per the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission, will come to an end after two more instalments (Jan 2015 and July 2015). Recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are expected to come into effect from Jan 2016 onwards.

Now, the next episode begins…’Expected DA from January 2015′

It is highly unlikely that there will be a two-digit DA hike in the next two instalments (January 2015 and July 2015). Kindly keep in mind the fact that despite a 6 point increase of the AICPIN from 246 to 252 for the month of July 2014, there was hardly an impact. Even if it increases by 3 points over the next five months, the DA would increase to 9% only. It is impossible for AICPIN to constantly increase in future.

We believe that, under current circumstances, the next installment of additional Dearness allowance from Jan 2015 hike would only be about 6% or 7%.
We have analyzed the impact of CPI number on increasing DA and given below a table to express the same for your information…

SUB: AGITATION PROGRAMME FROM 15.09.2014 to 20.09.2014.

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Sadar Namaskar,

It has been decided by Government Employees National Confederation that all the constituent Federations of GENC will observe an Agitation Programme throughout the country from 15.09.2014 to 20.09.2014 to remove the ceiling of Rs. 3500/- per mensem under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. You are aware that Section 12 of the Payment of Bonus Act has been amended by Act 45 of 2007 (w.e.f. 01.04.2006) regarding calculation of bonus with respect to certain employees which states as under:-
“Where the salary or wage of an employee exceeds three thousand and five hundred rupees per mensem, the bonus payable to such employee under Section 10 or, as the case may be, under Section 11, shall be calculated as if his salary or wage were three thousand and five hundreds rupees per mensem.”
Meanwhile, Central Government accepted the recommendations of 06th CPC with effect from 01.01.2006 and fixed the minimum basic pay plus grade pay as Rs. 5200 + 1800 = 7000.

Therefore 28,06,369 Group ‘C’ (Non Gazetted) and 1,13,477 Group ‘B’ (Non Gazetted) total thirty lakh approx. Central Government employees are getting the bonus @ Rs. 3500/- per mensem under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 or Productivity Linked Bonus whereas none of them is drawing wages less than Rs. 7000/- per mensem excluding other allowances which has beencausing discontentment amongst the employees.

In this agitation programme Gate Meetings, Demonstration at Main Gate, Rallies, Wearing Black Badges and may include other peaceful methods decided at your levels will be organized as per feasibility. This demand week will be concluded with the giving Memorandum to respective Head of Department on last working day (20.09.2014) addressed to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and copy to the Minister of Labour & Employment, Govt of India.We hope for full support and co-operation to give a great success to this programme.
Brotherly Yours
