It has become clear from the All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI) that came in March that dearness allowance may increase at the rate of 4% in July-August. There was a fall in AICPI figures in January and February. Based on these figures, the possibility of increasing the DA (Dearness Allowance) for July-August was less. But after the release of the number of March, the DA hike is being considered fixed.
Data for three months yet to come
If DA hike is 4 percent in July-August, then dearness allowance of central employees will increase from 34 percent to 38 percent. Although the figures for April, May and April are yet to come, but seeing the rising inflation, the AICPI figure is likely to increase.
