DA from 1st July 2016 will be 3% if DA not merged taken in to account – DA merger on 7th Pay Commission implementation was 125% against the actual DA entitlement of 125.75 as on 1st January 2016 – Staff Side JCM writes to Govt
7th Pay Commission recommended for retaining CPI (IW) with Base 2001=100, the price index which is being used for calculating Dearness Allowance since 1st January 2006
On the basis of All India Consumer Price Index for the period from July 2015 to April 2016 and assumed indices for May and Jun 2016, DA for Central Government Employees in Pre-revised pay (6th CPC) and DA from July after implementation of 7th Pay Commission have been estimated
DA with effect from January 2016 was estimated by 7th Pay Commission in its report released in November 2015, as 125%. This estimation is correct now as Govt has approved the increase in DA to an extent of 6% with effect from January 2016.
