  • After the increase in dearness allowance by 4 percent, the salary of central employees can increase by Rs 8,000 to Rs 27,000 annually. DA for central government employees is calculated on the basis – {Average All India Consumer Price of the last 12 months Index (Base Year-2001=100-115.76/115.76}X100.
  • The formula for Central Public Sector employees is as follows – { Average of 3 months All India Consumer Price Index (Base Year-2001=100-126.33/126.33}X100.
  • The basic pay of an employee is Rs 18,000 and he currently gets DA of Rs 7,560 at the rate of 42 per cent, which will increase to more than Rs 8,100 at the rate of 46 per cent. At maximum basic pay of Rs 56,900, this will be around Rs 27,000.
  • Those with a salary of Rs 38500 will get a benefit of more than Rs 17000. You will also get the benefit of the same allowances. If the salary of an employee is Rs 50 thousand per month and his basic pay is Rs 15000, then at 42% DA he will get Rs 6,300, if at 46% DA he will get Rs 6,900 per month, in this case the salary will increase by Rs 600 per month.
