Friends ,
I have some queries:
(1) why does the Govt take three months to declare the new applicable DA. (My organisation takes 1 month more beyond this to implement the new DA)
(2) Why does this have to be aprroved by Cabinet every time? When the basis of calculating the new DA is defined why can it not happen by a simple MoF ( or any other Ministry)order ?
(3) As a case of natural justice can we (employees) not ask the Govt to pay us what is due to us from back date WITH INTEREST?

As you mentioned, if your organisation can take 1 month just to implement the new DA, then is it not fair that the MOF takes around three months to declare the new DA. The issue is not as simple as it looks.

The basis of calculating the new DA is not defined. It is the discretion of the Government to decide the revised DA keeping the index in view and the financial implications involved. So the Government can declare less DA if the financial health of the government is not in good shape.

As far as interest on arrears are concerned, kindly look holistically at what Government is giving us as a package. Don't look at things in a piece-meal manner.

the government is bound to work with some rules
the financial power to sanction da rest with cabinet and so they decide
i know how much salary is payable to me so can i fix it myself?
the system keeps checks and balances by delegating proper authority and responsibility at various levels

and lets not forget the releasing da to cg employees is not the only job of the union
they have so many burning issues

i fully agree that we are so much better off than unorganized work force and lets be thankful for that

I think it is as per recomendation of pay commission,a line is mentioned in the recomendations that DA will be released in the month of March and September of every year.
Projection says DA hike from next January 2010 will be around 5% .

what is the basis for this projection?
inflation is a bit down but not so much as to convince one about becoming half of what it was in jun end

It is based on the past six months CPI which have already come:
Jan 10 172
Feb 10 170
Mar 10 170
Apr 10 170
May 10 172
June 10 174
Follow up the assumption of remaining 6 months CPI as follows:
July10 174
Aug10 176
Sep10 178
Oct 179
Nov10 180
Dec10 181
On the basis above assumed data expected DA hike from jan 2011 will be around 5%(+ -) 1%.

My above projection about DA from Jan 2011 has lost its significance with release of AICPIN for July 2010 as 178.I projected the figure assuming AICPIN rise as slow as it was in first half (Jan10-june10),but in july it rose 4 points at a strech.Now new projection goes to something around 7%.
