    DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% – Dearness Allowance Estimation


    DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% based on Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) from January 2016 to December 2016 – Net increase in DA with effect from January 2017 is estimated to be 2% or 3%
    All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for the month of November 2016 has been relased by Ministry of Labour few days back.
    Click here to read the official press release of Labour Ministry for AICPI (IW) for the month of November 2016.


    What do we need for estimating DA from January 2017 ?
    After implementation of 7th Pay Commission report, same inflation index i.e Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) with base year 2001=100, which was used for 6th Pay Commission Pay, is adopted for determining Dearness Allowance of Central Government Employees and Pensioners.
    The only difference in DA calculation as far as DA from January 2016 will be, will be taking the Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015 in the place of Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2005 which was used in 6th CPC DA calculation

    Dearness Allowance payable after implementation of 7th Pay Commission = (Avg of CPI-IW for the past 12 months – Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)*100/(Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)

    In order to determine DA with effect from January 2017, based on the above formula we need Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to December 2016
    Now that Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to November 2016 is available, we have made an attempt to estimate Dearness Allowance applicable to Central Government Employees and Pensioners with effect from 1st January 2016, by assuming the possible CPI (IW) for the month of December 2016.
    Month Actual AICPI-IW
    Jan-2016 269
    Feb-2016 267
    Mar-2016 268
    Apr-2016 271
    May-2016 275
    Jun-2016 277
    Jul-2016 280
    Aug-2016 278
    Sep-2016 277
    Oct-2016 278
    Nov-2016 277
    Dec-2016 Yet to be released

    Estimation of DA from 1st January 2017:
    Scenario 1 : No increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016
    AICPI (IW) for November 2016 is 277. If AICPI (IW) for December 2016 remains the same as November 2016, there will be additional 1% increase in DA from January 2017 which would make overall DA as 5%.
    DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+275+277+280+278+277+278+277+277)/12]-(261.4)X100/261.4

    = 5 %



    Scenario 2: Decrease in AICPI (IW) in December 2016
    Even if All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) decreases by 31 point and pegged at 246 in the month of December 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 4% . At the same time even for 1 point decrease in the index for December 2016 will result in lesser DA increase from January 2017 compared to Sceanrio 1 in which index is unaltered in Dec 2016.
    DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+275+277+280+278+277+278+277+246)/12]-(261.4)X100/261.4

    = 4 %



    DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+275+277+280+278+277+278+277+276)/12]-(261.4)X100/261.4

    = 4 %

    Scenario 3 : Increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016
    It is very interesting to note here that, even for increase in consumer price index in the month of December up to 31 points, i.e Increase in AICPI (IW) for December 2016 to 308 points from 277 points in November 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 5% only.
    DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+275+277+280+278+277+278+277+308)/12]-(261.4)X100/261.4

    = 5 %


    The other scenario that increase of more than 31 points in AICPI (IW) in the month of December 2016 for making DA with effect from January 2017 more than 5% is most unlikely.
    Hence, it is more logical to conclude that DA from January 2017 will be either 4% or 5%
