Central employees entitled to get 125% Dearness Allowance from 01.01.2016
The Seventh Pay Commission headed justice A K Mathur has correctly predicted the dearness allowance (DA) hike to 125 per cent from the existing 119 per cent since January 2016.
The much awaited All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for the month of December 2015 has been released by Govt. It has decreased by one point from 269 from 270 which was recorded in the month of November 2015.
This confirms that DA from January 2016 will be 125% which was estimated by 7th Pay Commission.
Consequently, no correction or change in 7th pay commission fitment formula / multiplication factor of 2.57, will be needed now with respect to DA factor is concerned.
