Dearness Allowance for Workmen and Officer Employees in banks for the months of August, September & October 2014 under IX BPS/Joint Note dt. 27.4.10
The confirmed All India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base 1960= 100) for the quarter ended June 2014 are as follows:-
Apr 2014 - 5523.87
May 2014 - 5569.52
Jun 2014 - 5615.17
The average CPI of the above is 5569.52. The DA paid for the quarter ended July 2014 was at CPI 5436.00. Hence, there is an increase in CPI of 133.52 points, i.e., increase of 33 slabs over the current level.
Consequently, dearness allowance to employees is payable for 683 slabs for the period August, September & October 2014 i.e. an increase of 33 slabs over the current level.
In terms of clause 7 of the 9th Bipartite Settlement dated 27.04.2010 and clause 3 of the Joint Note dated 27.04.2010, the rate of dearness allowance payable to workmen and officer employees for the months of August, September & October 2014 shall be 102.45% 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 allowances to officers on an ad hoc basis, pending amendments to Officers’ Service Regulations.
