AICPIN points for the month of May to be announced Tomorrow

“The Ministry of Labour will announce the ‘All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers’ for the month of May, tomorrow; AICPIN indicates the rise and fall of prices of essential commodities across important towns and cities in the country”.

After significant changes in the Agricultural and Rural AICPIN points in the month of May, there is tremendous curiosity regarding the AICPIN points for the industrial workers. The index of Agricultural and Rural AICPIN had increased by 6 and 7 points to 811 and 816 respectively.

CPI (IW) BY 2001=100 points indicate the fluctuation of prices of essential commodities. If the CPI (IW) points increase, it leads to an increase in the percentage of additional Dearness Allowance for Central Government employees and Pensioners.

If the AICPIN for the month of May increases by 4 points, then the Dearness Allowance for July could be higher by 7%. In other words, from 113%, it could go up to 120%.

The AICPIN points of each month are calculated on the basis of the fluctuations in the prices of 24 commodities, including rice and wheat, in 78 selected cities and towns. The CPI (IW) BY 2001=100 of this month is released towards the end of the following month.

The present method of calculation was recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. From 01.01.2016 onwards, it will be calculated based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
