Central D.A. from January 2012 : 7% again.

With the availability of All-India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers from July to November 2011, It is almost certain that Central workers are going to get another 7% D.A. from January 2012.

The Index No.s from July to November is given below for ready reference.
 193 194 197 198 199
If the Index No. is in between 192 and 204 for he month of December 2011[Data to be published by Labour Bureau on 31.01.2012], the Dearness Allowance will be same - 7%
So all probabilities keeping in mind it can be safely predicted that D.A. from January 2012 will be 65% of pay.

Bankers may expect 25 slabs D.A. increase from February 2012.

View Update as on 31.01.2012
The exact increase for DA cannot be given at this stage as GOI has yet to announce the CPI for the month of December,  2011.   However, based on the CPI already announced for the month of October, 2011 and November, 2011, we are doing this guess work.   The CPI announced so far  are as follows:-
October, 20114519
November,  20114542
December, 20114565  (Projected)
There has been moderate increase in CPI in the month of October 2011, and  November,  2011.  Assuming that there will be again only similar moderate increase  in  CPI for December,  2011 the revised DA is likely to be around 63.90%, for the months of February to April, 2012 (i.e. increase of 25 slabs).   [The present DA is  60.15% for the months of  November, December, 2011 and January, 2012].
