7th Pay Commission DA Calculation: Dearness allowance for central employees may increase at the rate of 4% in August. It can be announced in late July or August. How much money will increase when DA increases, it is calculated on the basic salary.
7th Pay Commission DA Calculation: The next dearness allowance (Central government DA News) gift to the central employees can be very big. Speculations are being made that next time there may be an increase of 4 percent in Dearness Allowance. This will be determined by the data of AICPI index i.e. inflation. So far the numbers from January to March have come. Due to the Russia-Ukraine war, the way inflation has increased rapidly. Similarly, the index has also shown a jump in March.
There is a discussion that the figure of April may also increase further. It is clear from this that there is a fixed increase of 3-4% in Dearness Allowance (DA Hike). But, if the figures for the next three months i.e. April, May and June increase continuously, then the dearness allowance hike is sure to increase by 4% and can be even higher.
Dearness Allowance may be 38%!
Under the 7th Pay Commission, now all central government employees and pensioners are being paid DA and DR at the rate of 34 percent. But, by August, it can increase to 38%. It will be paid with the salary of August. Now central employees can get an idea of the salary increase according to their basic pay and grade.
How is Dearness Allowance calculated?
The next installment of DA is likely to be paid along with the salary of August. It may also get delayed due to policy matter. But, before that we can guess how it will be calculated and how it will be decided. If there is a possibility of increasing the Dearness Allowance (DA Hike) by 4 percent, then it can be calculated on the Basic Salary. If someone’s salary is Rs 20000, then at the rate of 4 percent, his salary will increase by Rs 800 in a month.
This formula works
There is a formula for dearness allowance calculation. The formula for central employees is [(Average of All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI) for the last 12 months – 115.76/115.76]×100. Now if we talk about Dearness Allowance of people working in PSU (Public Sector Units), then the method of its calculation is- Dearness Allowance Percentage = (Average of Consumer Price Index of last 3 months (Base Year 2001=100)- 126.33))x100
How much salary will increase, understand DA Calculation
According to the 7th pay matrix, there will be a bumper increase in the salary of officer grade. If someone’s basic salary is Rs 31,550. If you calculate on this then…
- Basic Pay – Rs 31550
- Estimated Dearness Allowance (DA) – 38% – Rs 11,989 per month
- Existing Dearness Allowance (DA) – 34% – Rs 10,727 per month
- On increasing Dearness Allowance (DA) by 4% – Rs 1262 (every month) will come more
- Annual Dearness Allowance paid – Rs 15,144 (at 38% DA) after 4% hike
Calculation on 38% DA
Let us assume that if dearness allowance increases by 4%, then the total DA will become 38%. If you calculate in the maximum salary range, then Rs 21622 will be available as DA every month on the basic salary of Rs 56,900. The total annual dearness allowance will be Rs 2,59,464.
