Maharastra hikes Dearness Allowance with effect from 1st May ,2011

The Maharastra state Govt. has decided to enhance the dearness allowances for employees of the state government with effect from May 1 onwards.
The dearness allowance has been increased from 45% to 51% at par with central government employees.
Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan approved the decision on Monday. While there was a demand to apply it from January onwards, the government has rejected the demand.
The move is likely to cost the government Rs150 crore monthly, i.e. Rs1800 crore in a month. Some other states have applied the hike from January onwards, the state government however felt that an additional burden of Rs 600 crore would be too much to handle.

Bankers likely to get 3.15% D.A. from May 2011 onwards.

Correction : Latest D.A. Position - 19 slab here
There is a possibility of 3.15% [21 slabs]increase in D.A. for Bank employees for May, June and July 2011
The exact increase for DA cannot be given at this stage as GOI has yet to announce the CPI for the month of March, 2011.   However, based on the CPI already announced for the month of Jan'11and Feb'11, we are doing this guess work.   The CPI announced so far  are as follows:-
Month                 CPI
January, 2011                  4291
February, 2011                4222
March, 2011            Not Avlbl.
The CPI has gone done in February, 2011.   The previous trends show that CPI is likely to remain at February, 2011 level or increase slightly.  Assuming that there will be marginal increase in CPI for March, 2011 the revised DA is likely to be around 53.10%, for the months of May, June and July, 2011 (i.e. increase of 21 slabs).   [The present DA is  49.95% for the months of February, March and April, 2011].
