Next Additional Dearness Allowance Hike Almost Confirmed at 7%..!

The Labour Bureau released the AICPIN points for the month of May yesterday. The AICPIN points, which had remained stagnant at 242 has increased by 2 points to touch 244 now. This has led to an increase of the Dearness Allowance for the month of May from 105.02 to 106.17.

With only one month left for the calculation of the second installment of additional Dearness Allowance of the year, one can be almost sure that it would bring a hike of 7%.
 
The two previous rounds of Dearness Allowance revision brought hikes of 10% each. One could sense an air of disappointment and lack of enthusiasm among the employees this time.

Another reason for the disappointment is the fact that despite the Dearness Allowance increasing by more than 100%, it has still not been merged with the basic pay. There was a lot of expectation that the new Government at the Centre will implement this much-awaited and much-expected change.
