DA From January 2019 – 3% Increase Confirmed Based On Calculations – Orders Yet To Be Issued

After All India Consumer Price Index  witnessed higher ever increase in July 2018 to the extent of 10 points, increase in Dearness Allowance for Central Government Employees and Pensioners from January 2019 was estimated to be not less than 3%.

Now, after release of CPI for the months from August 2018 to November 2018, we have updated this DA Estimation.
DA from January 2019Govt has released All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial workers) for the Month of October 2018 now. It could be seen that there is 1 point increase in CPI.
Due to phenomenal increase in Consumer Price Index from 291 to 301 which is 10 points increase in July 2018 alone, there were chances for DA for Central Government Employees reaching 13% with effect from January 2019, with an increase of 4% in DA from the first half yearly 2019.
Historical data reveals that out of consumer price index for the period from 2005 to June 2018, highest monthly increase in the index was recorded in the month of July 2009 which was 7 Points.
However, Consumer price index from the months of August to November 2018 did increase merely 1 point and stood at 302 as of November 2018.  Hence, it is almost confirmed that Dearness Allowance for Central Government Employees and Pensioners for the month from January 2019 will be 12%.
