Dearness Allowance for Central Government Employees from January-2011

             Now the D.A fever started again among all of our Central Government employees. All are eagerly searching to know what will be the D.A from January 2011. Because all of us know that the Dearness allowance is an important component of our salary in this inflationary trend. Here and there some predictions on Dearness Allowance have been published in some websites. But it is based on monthly All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (Base year 2001=100) announced by the Government from time to time.

The formula for calculating Dearness Allowance is,

Dearness Allowance = (Avg of AICPI for the past 12 months –115.76)*100/115.76

For example if you want to calculate DA with effect from 1.1.2011, get the average of AICPI for the period from 1.1.2010 to 31.12.2010, and apply the same in the above formula

AICPI from Jan-2010 to Sep-2010 have been already published in Labour Bureau website. AICPI for the months of October, November and December are yet to be announced.

The AICPI for first 9 months are










This AICPI (IW) (base year 2001=100) for each month would be available in the Labour Bureau, Department Statistics, Government of India website and would be updated each month.

Though the remaining three months AICPI are not known, we can however assume from the 9 months result of AICPI that the increase in Dearness Allowance may not be less than 5%. So we can expect that the Dearness Allowance may cross 50% level from January-2011.

Dear sir
The merger of DA as and when it crosses 50% for all purposes is a must and the right of the employees.

The Confederation of Central Governemtn employees and workers have decided - in its National Council meeting held at Mumbai on 1st Dec 2010 - to demand revision of wages in every 5 years (ie from 1 Jan 2011)and merger of 50% DA for all purposes.

The struggle only would bring the government to senses.

And the struggle has to be by coming to the streets and not through blogs and emails.

With Regards
M. S. Raja

At the recently held monthly meeting (9-1-11) of Mysore City Central Govt. Pensioners Association, we had serious discussions and as an Exec.Com. member, I am posting this:

While demand for revision of DA has been a continuous struggle all along, the central body of central associations appears to be neglecting one important demand of retired officials for providing health care facility or insurance cover or reimbursement of expenditure incurred or recognition of local recognised hospitals for helping them in their old age, in non-CGHS towns.

Please remember that all of us retire and due to various factors like hostile environments/life threatening crimes being unleashed on elderly people in mega cities or due to familty problems, we may have to shift our base to home towns where CGHS facilities do not exist. What next? Many discussions have taken place, alternatives like med allowance of Rs.100/ Rs.300, health insurance etc. But the allowance is peanuts compared with the cost of medicines, health insurance has been dropped unceremoniously.
