Expected DA Jan 2018: CG Employees losing interest in Expected DA?
Central Government employees losing interest in Dearness Allowance?

It is becoming very obvious these days that the Central Government employees and pensioners are fast losing interest in Dearness Allowance. 

Dearness Allowance is given to the Central Government employees once every six months, in order to help them maintain their lifestyle against the rising prices. Fluctuations in the prices of 392 essential items are recorded regularly at 78 various locations and their data is tabulated once every month to calculate the All India Consumer Price Index Number(AICPIN), which is then released by the Centre. Dearness Allowance is thus calculated. 

For eight years now, we have been calculating the Dearness Allowance in advance and releasing the numbers. This is why we are able to sense an acute loss of interest among the Central Government employees in recent times to know their next and expected Dearness Allowance. 

Dearness Allowance is calculated with the employee’s basic salary. For example, a 5 percent Dearness Allowance for an employee who draws a basic salary of Rs. 7000 per month, will translate into Rs. 350. An employee drawing basic salary of Rs. 20,000 will get an additional Rs. 200 if 1 percent Dearness Allowance is sanctioned. 

All the Central Government employees, defence personnel and pensioners are now being paid as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, from January 2016 onwards. The Seventh Pay Commission had recommended that no changes shall be made in the Dearness Allowance calculations and the method adopted by the Sixth Pay Commission continues to be followed. The centre too had accepted the recommendations. 

Under the Sixth Pay Commission method, the Dearness Allowance had increased by 125 percent in the past ten years, from January 2006 to December 2015. It is worth mentioning that at least thrice, a Dearness Allowance of 10 percent was paid to the employees. The table below shows the Dearness Allowance that was paid once every six months. 

The loss of interest among the employees probably has something to do with the fact that the increase in Dearness Allowance has only been marginal ever since the Seventh Pay Commission was implemented. 

There was no Dearness Allowance for the first six months, January to June 2016. Dearness Allowance of only two percent was given for July to December 2016. It looked as if something was wrong with the calculations, right from the start, but the employees thought that things will improve with time. The Dearness Allowance for January to June 2017 was a mere one percent, which came as a rude shock to all. 

The centre claimed that it was because they have the prices under control. 

So, what is the Dearness Allowance for the second term of 2017, July to December 2017, likely to be?
This time too, it is not expected to exceed two percent. 

We expect the Dearness Allowance to be 7% with effect from January 2018.

Reimbursement when Pensioners take Treatment
Immediately after Retirement before getting CGHS card.

The undersigned is directed to say that there have been instances when pensioners have taken treatment immediately after retirement without getting a CGHS Token Card issued. In such cases, when the pensioners submit their reimbursement claims, these could not be entertained as on the date of treatment they had not got their CGHS pensioners card issued, due to some reason or other, which deprived them of reimbursement of medical expenditure incurred during that period.

2. It has, therefore, been decided to allow grace period of one month to the pensioners from the date of their retirement for purposes of admitting their medical claims for reimbursement for the treatment taken immediately after retirement. In other works, if the CGHS Token Card is not got issued within the grace period of one month, the pensioners will not be entitled for any medical reimbursement expenses and CGHS facilities after the grace period of one month.

3. This issues with the approval of Finance Division vide their Dy. No. 622/JS (FA), dated 22/10/1992.
