Dearness Allowance for Workmen and Officer Employees in banks for the months of February. March & April 2015 under IX BPS/Joint Note dt.27.4.10

The average CPI of the above is 5774.95. Consequently, dearness allowance to employees is payable for 734 slabs for the period February. March & April 2015 i.e., an increase of 2 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 February, March & April 2015 shall be 110.10% of 'pay’.

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.
