Actual DA increase calculation for bank employees

CPI Data published by Labour Bureau with 2001 as base year

October 2017 – 287 (published)

November 2017 – 288 (published)

December 2017 – 286 (published)

After Multiplying it with conversion factor (4.63 x 4.93)

Consumer Price Index (CPI) for October 2017 = (287 x 4.63 x 4.93) = 6551.03

Consumer Price Index (CPI) for November 2017 = (288 x 4.63 x 4.93) = 6573.85

Consumer Price Index (CPI) for December 2017 = (286 x 4.63 x 4.93) = 6528.20

  • Average CPI = (6551.03+6573.85+6528.20)/3 = 6551.02
  • Deducting 4440 slabs which are merged in basic pay as per 10thBPS  = (6573.85-4440) = 2111.02
  • Divide 2133.85 by 4 to calculate DA slabs for Quarter = (2111.02/4)=527.76 or 527
  • So DA slabs for next quarter i.e, February 2018 to April 2018will be 527 on which 0.10 percent DA is payable.
  • So DA slabs for February 2018 , March 2018 and April 2018 will be 52.70 percent.
  • Increase in DA slabs = 527-516(previous quarter) = 11 slabs
