DA from July, 2013: 10% hike likely to announce in September - Confederation demanding 50% merger

Govt likely to announce 10% DA hike next month
Government uses CPI-IW data for past 12 month or a year to arrive at a number for the purpose of any DA hike
The government is likely to announce a hike in dearness allowance to 90% from existing 80% in September, benefiting about 50 lakh central employees and 30 lakh pensioners ahead of the festival season.

According to official sources, the preliminary assessment suggests that dearness allowance hike will be in the range of 10-11% and would be effective from July 1 this year.

He said the exact number could be calculated only when the revised all India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) for the month of June will be released on August 30. 

According to the provisional data released by government on July 31, the retail inflation for factory workers for the month of June stood at 11.06%, higher than 10.68% in May this year.

As per the practise, the government uses CPI-IW data for past 12 month or a year to arrive at a number for the purpose of any DA hike. Thus, the retail inflation for industrial workers between July, 2012 to June 2013 would be used to take final call on the matter.

"It would be around 10% this time and would be announced in September," Confederation of Central Government Employees Secretary General K K N Kutty told PTI.

"Besides, raising DA to 90%, the government should merge 50% of the allowance with the basic pay as was our demand. DA breached 50% benchmark long ago", he said.

As per the practise, the DA is merged with basic pay when it breaches the 50% mark. DA merger helps employees as their other allowances are paid as a proportion of basic pay.

Kutty said, "This DA hike won't help much as actual rise in the cost of living is 171% since January 1, 2011."

There would be a double digit hike in DA after about three years. It was last in September, 2010 that the government had announced a hike of 10% to be given with effect from July 1, 2010.

DA was hiked to 80% from 72% in April, 2013, effective from January 1, this year.


सबसे बड़ी खुशखबरी: 90 फीसदी हो सकता है महंगाई भत्ता
Agency | Aug 04, 2013, 18:24PM IST

नई दिल्ली: सरकार सितंबर में त्योहारी मौसम से पहले महंगाई भत्ते (डीए) को बढ़ाकर 90 प्रतिशत कर सकती है जो फिलहाल 80 प्रतिशत है। इससे 50 लाख केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों और 30 लाख पेंशनधारकों को फायदा होगा।

आधिकारिक सूत्रों के मुताबिक प्राथमिक आकलन से जाहिर होता है कि सितंबर में महंगाई भत्ते में 10-11 प्रतिशत की वृद्धि होगी जो इस साल 1 जुलाई से प्रभावी होगा।

उन्होंने कहा कि इसका सही आकलन 30 अगस्त को जून के औद्योगिक कामगारों के लिए अखिल भारतीय उपभोक्ता मूल्य सूचकांक में संशोधन के जारी होने के बाद होगा।

सरकार द्वारा 31 जुलाई को जारी जून के अस्थायी आंकड़ों के मुताबिक कारखाना श्रमिकों के लिए खुदरा मुद्रास्फीति 11.06 प्रतिशत थी जो इस साल मई के 10.68 प्रतिशत के आंकड़े से अधिक है।

आमतौर पर सरकार महंगाई भत्ते में बढ़ोतरी के लिए पिछले 12 महीने के औद्योगिक कामगारों के लिए खुदरा मुद्रास्फीति का उपयोग करती है। इस तरह इस मामले पर विचार के लिए जुलाई 2012 से जून 2013 तक के खुदरा मुद्रास्फीति के आंकड़े का उपयोग किया जाएगा।

केंद्र सरकार के कर्मचारियों के परिसंघ के महासचिव केके एन कुट्टी ने कहा ‘‘इस बार यह करीब 10 प्रतिशत रहेगा और इसकी घोषणा सितंबर में की जाएगी।’’

उन्होंने कहा ‘‘इसके अलावा मंहगाई भत्ते को बढ़ाकर 90 प्रतिशत करने के अलावा सरकार को 50 प्रतिशत भत्ते को मूल वेतन में मिला चाहिए और यही हमारी मांग थी। महंगाई भत्ता बहुत पहले ही 50 प्रतिशत बेंचमार्क को पार कर चुका है।’’

आमतौर पर मंहगाई भत्ते के 50 प्रतिशत के पार जाने पर इसे मूल वेतन में शामिल कर लिया जाता है। मंहगाई भत्ते के विलय से कर्मचारियों के भत्ते में बढ़ोतरी के साथ मूल वेतन में भी बढ़ोतरी होती है।

कुट्टी ने कहा ‘‘महंगाई भत्ते में बढ़ोतरी से बहुत अधिक मदद नहीं मिलेगी क्योंकि एक जनवरी, 2011 से मुकाबले महंगाई बहुत बढ़ गई है।’’
