However the percentage of additional dearness allowance for Central Government employees and Pensioners from January 2014 will be 10% and the total dearness allowance will become 100%.

The press release said that the percentage contribution of food group is declaimed by 4.96 and the inflation also downward pressure to 9.13 per cent against compare with the previous month of 11.47 per cent.

Most of the Central employees are excepted the index will go higher than three percent, because of the additional dearness allowance will climb to 11%.

But it happened in reverse direction, declined by four points. However the balance percentage will be added in the next dearness allowance calculation.

Dear Sir,
Reg.: Merger of Dearness Allowance with Pay

On the persistent forceful demand of the Central Government employees, including Railwaymen, successive Central Pay Commissions were appointed by the Government of India with a view to improve upon wage structure and to grant parity with other employees of the Public Sector Undertakings in the wake of market inflation and price hike of essential commodities. These Pay Commissions, while recommending revised pay structure have also recommended grant of Dearness Allowance on the basis of increase in the Price Index.
