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 = (289 x 4.63 x 4.93) = 6596.68

  • Average CPI = (6551.03+6573.85+6596.68)/3 = 6573.85
  • Deducting 4440 slabs which are merged in basic pay as per 10th BPS  = (6573.85-4440) = 2133.85
  • Divide 2133.85 by 4 to calculate DA slabs for Quarter = (2133.85/4)=533.46 or 533.
  • So DA slabs for next quarter i.e, February 2018 to April 2018 will be 533 on which 0.10 percent DA is payable.
  • So DA slabs for February 2018 , March 2018 and April 2018 will be 53.30 percent.
  • Increase in DA slabs = 533-516(previous quarter) = 17 slabs
