7th CPC DA Calculation

DA calculator for Expected DA from July 2016 in Sixth and 7th Pay Commission

There are three main factors which determine the increase in percentage of DA in every pay Commission

1.DA calculation Formula 2.AICPIN for Industrial Workers 3. Base Average Index
1. Formula for DA calculation
((12 Month AICPIN Average - Base Average Index)/Base Average Index) * 100 is equal to  Percentage of Increase 
2. AICPIN for Industrial Workers
The Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) is an important statistical/economic indicator. It was first introduced on scientific lines with base 1960=100 which was based on the results of Family Living Survey conducted in 1958-59 at 50 industrially important centres. The series was then, updated on base 1982=100 and a revision in 1999-2000 has further updated the base on 2001=100. The current series of CPI-IW with base year 2001=100 covers 78 industrially important centers spread across the country

3. Base Average Index

After neutralization of DA to revise the Pay and Allowance in Every Pay Commission, the Base Average Index will be modified taking into the account of 12 Months AICPIN points of previous year to neutralization of DA1. From 1996 onwards, the average base Index was 306.33 (with base 1982=100)

How 306.33 was arrived?

To calculate the DA in Fifth pay commission, the 12 Month Average of AICPIN for the year 1995 was taken. The 12 months AICPIN Average of 1995 was 306.33
2. From 2006 onwards, the Avarage Base Index is 115.76 (with Base 2001 = 100)

How 115.76 was arrived…?

The Government has developed a new series with base 2001, with effect from January 2006. Back data series with base 2001 can be generated using linking factor 4.63
So the AICPIN Average of 2005 (with base 1982=100) i.e 536 had to be modified using linking factor 4.63 to adopt the new series in DA calculation. Thus the Base Index Number 115.76 was arrived
3. For 7th Pay Commission what will be the Base Index…?
As the 7th Pay commission recommendations will be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016, the AICPIN average of 2005 will be the Base Index for calculation of DA for 7th Pay Commission
So formula for Calculation of DA in 7th Pay Commission is
(( 12Month AICPIN Average - 261.4 ) /261.4 ) *100

Accordingly, the following Calculator will calculate the Sixth CPC and 7th CPC Expected DA from July 2016.

Seventh Pay Commission Panel On Allowance To Meet Soon

New Delhi: The committee appointed to look into the allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is scheduled to hold its first meeting this week while the payment of arrears will commence from this month, Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa has said.
"The decision to defer the decision pertaining to allowances and refer it to a committee was taken basically because there are 196 or so allowances, and the recommendations amount to major changes in the allowances," Mr Lavasa said.
"So, the government decided that the committee of various officers should carefully examine and then give their decision. There are many ministries involved. Various categories of employees, various types of allowances," the finance secretary said.
"The Pay Commission had recommended that so many allowances should be abolished and that so many should be subsumed. The committee will have its first meeting this week. It will look into these considerations. The government has given four months," Mr Lavasa told IANS in an interview.
"As regards the distribution of arrears, it will happen in August."
After the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission were largely accepted by the Union Cabinet in June, it was decided to constitute a panel headed by the finance secretary to specifically look at the suggestions on allowances.
The commission had examined a total of 196 existing allowances and, by way of rationalisation, it had recommended 51 allowances be abolished and 37 others be subsumed. Due to its wide impact, a panel was formed to take a holistic view on the changes proposed.
"The committee will complete its work in a time-bound manner and submit its reports within four months. Till a final decision is taken, all existing allowances will continue to be paid at the existing rates," a Cabinet note had said.
Asked about the impact of Pay Commission recommendations on the budget and, more specifically, the fiscal deficit, the finance secretary said this was an exercise that will start soon.
"The Pay Commission report had been submitted before the budget. The budget did provide for some additionality," Mr Lavasa said.
"As we go along at RE (revised estimate) stage, we will have to see what is the kind of impact it will have on the fiscal deficit keeping in view the revenue generation which is taking place. It is too early to say. We will review at that time."
It was estimated by the Pay Commission that the additional financial impact on the exchequer due to the implementation of all its recommendations in 2016-17 will be Rs 1,02,100 crore. This apart, it had estimated an additional implication of Rs 12,133 crore on account of arrears

MACPs - Acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation : NFIR writes to Cabinet Secretary

Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – MACPs

National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC(Imp)/2016/MoF
Dated : 02/08/2016

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rastraapati Bhavan Annexie,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme – reg.

NFIR invites kind attention of the Government to the acceptance of 7th CPC recommendations circulated by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) vide Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July 2016, the Annexure II of which contains the decision in relation to Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) as given below:-

·                         “While the MACP has been continued to be administered at the intervals of 10,20 & 30 years of service to an employee as was in vogue, the benchmark for performance appraisal under the MACPS has been enhanced from “good” to “very good”.
·                         It has also been decided by the Government to withhold annual increments in the case of those employees who are unable to meet the benchmark for MACP or on regular promotion within first 20 years of the service of the employee”.

In this connection, NFIR conveys that the Government has not consulted JCM (Staff Side) before taking decision as above although this being one of the issues contained in the Charter of demands, seeking discussion. The decision has caused disappointment among Railway employees and as well Central Government employees. Upgrading the bench mark from “good” to “very good” for granting financial upgradation under MACPS would provide unfettered powers to the superiors to victimize and give scope to favour the liked staff on “pick” and “choose” basis. The decision for withholding annual increments on the pretext that employees are unable to meet the bench mark for MACP or regular promotion within first 20 years of service would not only demoralize the staff but also give handle for willful harassment and victimization by higher Officials.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary who is also the Chairman of the JCM, to kindly hold meeting with the Staff Side representatives for resolving the issues amicably through discussions.

Yours sincerely

(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

பல்வேறு  கருத்துக்கள் புதிய DA கணக்கீட்டில்  உள்ள குறைபாடுகளை சுட்டி காட்டுகிறது. அவர்கள் எடுத்துரைக்கும் கருத்துக்கள் 2 சதவிகித DA  உயர்வை கணக்கிட்டு வேறுபாடை சொல்கிறது. 
தற்போதைய நிலையில் அரசிடம்  3 சதவிகித உயர்வை கோருவது தான் சிறந்தது. 3 சதவிகித உயர்வு இந்த வேறுபாட்டை நிச்சயம் குறைக்கும்.
மத்திய சம்மேளனங்கள் முயற்சிக்குமா ?

7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC.
A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

          As per this current DA calculator. 6th pay DA would be 7% and7th pay DA is 2% from July on-wards. Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike.7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor.

For example…
         If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400.So as per DA calculator,  7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400.  2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay  will be 1028. (If 2.91 DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay will be 1496.)

         So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration. In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended. Suppose if  we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400.And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to  3.5…!!!If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years. 
SOURCE-Central Government Employees News 

The above article discusses the parity between 6th CPC and 7th CPC DA calculations. They have taken account of 2 percent increase in this article. If 2.91 DA rise has been taken. the DA will be Rs.1496 which will be higher than the 6th CPC DA.  
At this situation, We should demand the Government to announce the 3% DA raise from July 2016.  
Will our Federations raise this?
