Expected DA July 2014 – Finally it concludes at 7%

Expected DA July 2014 – Finally it concludes at 7%
As anticipated by all, the expected DA from July 2014 concluded at 7%.
With the announcement of the AICPI(IW) points for the month of June, the calculation of the additional dearness allowance for central government employees and pensioners from July onwards have ended. The percentage of Dearness allowance and Dearness relief to be paid from July 2014 will be increased by 7%.
Based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, in order to meet the rising expenses of essential commodities and inflation, dearness allowance is given twice every year to the central government employees – from January to June and from July to December – calculated on the basis of the All India Consumer Price Index of Industrial Workers Base Year 2001=100.

The most recently released AICPIN points for the month of June have increased by two and now stands at 246. Since the AICPIN points have increased by two, the dearness allowance percentage arrived at 107.25, is to be calculated, after ignoring the decimal points, as 7%. This will be officially announced by the Central Government after approval of Unionn Cabinet committee in the month of September.

The last two installments, 10% dearness allowance was being paid to the employees. Many wonder why it has come down to 7% this time. There are two main reasons for this, one is AICPIN points, and another is the method of calculating DA. One has to also keep in mind the fact that dearness allowance of 10% was also given based on the same calculations.

The fact is, the next two additional dearness allowances (Expected DA from January 2015, and expected DA from July 2015) are not likely to cross 5%.

The method of calculating dearness allowance is given in detail in the table below:

Biometric Attendance to be implemented soon

Biometric Attendance to be implemented soon

Soon all ministries and central departments will get biometric attendance system, which will be linked with Adhaar number of each employees.

Sources said that the entire project across all departments will be implemented by National Informatics Centre (NIC) and an order will be issued soon. Though at present, quite a few central offices have installed biometric attendance, the need to link it to Adhaar is being done to ensure that the employees cannot do any fraud to mark their attendance.

“This additional provision will ensure that the genuine employee is recording attendance while coming to office and when he clocks out,”said a government source.

Following recent surprise checks by two central ministers – Venkaiah Naidu and Prakash Javedekar – when they detected huge number of late comers, they had directed installation of biometric system so that there is proper record of when the employees reached office and when they left for the day.

Biometric attendance system is a foolproof technology to ensure the accuracy of attendance and is useful to big organizations and government entities. What makes a biometric time clock one of the best time and attendance systems is that it has a biometric fingerprint scanner built in that is much more accurate in time keeping that a time card or time sheets because employees can’t clock in other employees.

The principle of One Rank One Pension for the Armed Forces has been accepted by the Government. The modalities for implementation were discussed with various stakeholders and are presently under consideration of the Government.
