7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?

7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?
 
Dearness Allowance is one of the important issues that the Pay Commission deals with. The calculation method that was recommended by the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the ones suggested by all the previous Pay Commissions. Dearness Allowance, which was increasing by 1 or 2% until the 5th Pay Commission suddenly shot up to the peak of double-digit numbers.

Until the 5th CPC, the Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers 1982 = 100 was used for calculating dearness allowance. From the 6th Pay Commission onwards, CPI (IW) 2001=100 was used for calculating the DA.

 There was another crucial change that the 6th CPC made. It recommended that the Reference Base Index be changed from 306.33. As a result, 115.76 became the new Reference Base Index from 01.01.2006 onwards.

Will the 7th CPC introduce a new CPI (IW)? Or will it bring about changes in the Reference Base Index?

This is something that everybody wants to know.

Just watch the difference between 5th and 6th CPC DA Calculation methods…



5th CPC calculation method is given below…

The extant formula for calculation of DA till 1-1-2004 was:

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
——————————————————–  x 100 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

The Fifth Pay Commission had recommended that DA should be converted into DP each time the CPI increased by 50% over the base index. The Government merged 50% of DA with the
basic pay w.e.f. 1-4-2004. The formula for calculation of DA for the period from 1-7-2004 is:

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
{  ————————————————  x 100} – 50 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

6th CPC calculation method is given below…
(12 Monthly Average) – 115.76
——————————————————–      x 100 = percentage increase in prices
115.76

Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion

 Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion


DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year. These undesirable trends negate the very purpose of the above said Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 and it is also against the principle of natural justice.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: – Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion-Regarding


The undersigned is directed to invite reference to the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 regarding consideration of retired employees who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held. The said OM provides as follows:-

“…….There is no specific bar in the aforesaid Office Memorandum dated April 10, 1989 or any other related instructions of the Department of Personnel and Training for consideration of retired employees, while preparing year-wise panel(s), who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s). According to legal opinion also it would not be in order if eligible employees, who were within the zone of consideration for the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held, are not considered while preparing year-wise zone of consideration/panel and, consequently, their juniors are considered (in their places), who would not have been in the zone of consideration if the DPC(s) had been held in time. This is considered imperative to identify the correct zone of consideration for relevant Year(s). Names of the retired officials may also be included in the panel(s). Such retired officials would, however, have no justify for actual promotion. The DPC(s) may, if need be, prepare extended panel(s) following the principles prescribed in the Department of Personnel and  Training Office Memorandum No.22011/8/87-Estt.(D) dated April 9, 1996.”
Appointment Committee of Cabinet has observed that DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year. These undesirable trends negate the very purpose of the above said Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 and it is also against the principle of natural justice.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are therefore advised to ensure strict compliance of the instructions of the Department of Personnel & Training issued vide this Department’s OM No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998.

4. These instructions may please be brought out to the notice of all concerned including attached and subordinate offices.
