(Designated  Officers)

Dear Sirs,
Dearness  Allowance  for Workmen and Officer Employees  in banks  for the months of February, March  & April  2017 under X BPS/ Joint Note dated 25.5.2015

The confirmed All India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base1960= 100) for the quarter ended December 2016 are as follows:-

October 20166345.60
November 20166322.77
December 20166277.12

The average CPI of the above is 6315 and accordingly the number of DA slabs are 469(6315-4440= 1875/4= 469  Slabs) The last quarterly Payment of DA was at 478 Slabs.  Hence there is a decrease in DA slabs of 9, i.e 469 Slabs for payment of DA for the quarter February, March & April 2017.

In terms of clause 7 of the 101h  Bipartite Settlement dated 25.05.2015 and clause 3 of the Joint Note dated 25.05.2015, the rate of Dearness Allowance payable to workmen and officer employees for the months of February, March & April  2017 shall be 46.90  % of  'pay'. While arriving at dearness  allowance payable, decimals from third  place  may please  be ignored.

We advise banks to pay the difference between the old and revised salary and allowance to officers on an ad hoc basis, pending amendments to Officers' Service Regulations.
Yours faithfully,
K S Chauhan
Senior Vice President
