Expected Dearness Allowance from July 2014 for Central Govt Employees and Pensioners…
Expected DA- Status, as of March 2014
Expected Dearness Allowance from July 2014 : This time there is a considerable slackening in the pace of the expected DA. It looks as if there are plenty of reasons for it.
As of March, the AICPIN has increased by one point and is at 239. The rapid increase in Consumer Price Index (IW) has been brought under control now. Election is believed to be one of the reasons for it. Since price rise and inflation are under control, there is not much of an increase in All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers. With a fall in the prices of essential commodities, the AICPIN points have actually reduced.
Another reason is the reduction of AICPIN by 4 points in December 2013. The Consumer Price Index, which was steadily rising till then, slumped by 4 points. It wasn’t much of a shock then because the Additional DA for the month of January 2014 increased by 10% and had touched 100%.
The All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers Base Year 2001=100, which was at 243, fell by 4 points to end up at 239. It again fell by 2 points to touch 237, thus dampening the expectations surrounding the next additional Dearness Allowance announcements. It looks highly unlikely that the AICPIN would rise by 4 points to return to its previous levels.
