Likely D.A. for Bankers for Nov/Dec 2012 and Jan'13

Click here to View likely D.A. from February 2013
Chance of hike of 42 slabs
It is known to everybody that three months' consumer price index no. is needed to calculate the bank D.A. exactly. We have the data for July and August 2012. September data to be published on 31st October and only then the real hike may be calculated.
Predicting the data in advance we can calculate that there may be a likely increase of 6.30% on existing scale. (Remember, the scales are likely to be revised from November itself due to Xth bipartite.)
Thus the total D.A. payable is likely to be 76.50% with effect from 01.11.2012.
(It may kindly be noted that it is only an assumption. Actual increase may vary slightly.)

Central D.A. likely to be announced today

The Union Cabinet is expected to meet this evening to consider a 7 per cent hike in the Dearness Allowance (DA) of Central government employees.
Once approved, it will benefit over 52 lakh government employees.

The meetings of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) and Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure (CCI), scheduled for Friday, were postponed apparently in view of the rapid political developments in the aftermath of the government's decision to hike diesel prices and operationalise its earlier move to allow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi- brand retail.
The hike in dearness allowance will be effective from July 1, 2012, and the employees would be entitled to arrears from that date.
The additional burden on exchequer on account of increase in DA would be around Rs. 5,000 crore for the eight-month period between July, 2012 and February, 2013. It will be Rs. 7,400 crore for the full financial year.
The government had last increased DA in March this year from 58 per cent to 65 per cent, which was effective from January 1, 2012. It will now be increased to 72 per cent.
