Bank Employees DA – Orders issued for May, June and July 2015 by IBA

Bank Employees DA – Orders issued for May, June and July 2015 by IBA
IBA issued orders for Dearness allowance for bank employees from May 2015.

Indian Banks’ Association

No.CIR/HR&IR/76/D/2015-16/1742
May 2, 2015
All Members of the Association
(Designated Officers)

Dear Sirs,

Dearness Allowance for Workmen and Officer Employees in banks for the months of May, June & July 2015 under IX BPS/Joint Note dt. 27.4.10

The confirmed All India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base 1960=100) for the quarter ended March 2015 are as follows:-

Jan 2015 – 5797.78
Feb 2015 – 5774.95
Mar 2015 – 5797.78

The average CPI of the above is 5790.17 Consequently, dearness allowance to employees is payable for 738 slabs for the period May, June & July 2015 i.e., an increase of 4 slabs over the current level.

In terms of clause 7 of the 9th Bipartite Settlement dated 27.04.2010 and clause 3 of the Joint Note dated 27.04.2010, the rate of dearness allowance payable to workmen and officer employees for the months of May, June & July 2015 shall be 110.70 % of ‘pay’. While arriving at dearness allowance payable, decimals from third place may please be ignored.

We advise banks to pay the difference between the old and revised salary and allowances to officers on an ad hoc basis, pending amendments to Officers’ Service Regulations.

Yours faithfully,

REVISION OF DA CALCULATION FORMAT – INSTANT OF JUNE AND DEC, WE PROPOSED APRIL AND OCTOBER

REVISION OF DA CALCULATION FORMAT – INSTANT OF JUNE AND DEC, WE PROPOSED APRIL AND OCTOBER

It is a well-known fact that every six months, the Central Government increases the Dearness allowance for its employees during the months of January and July. The increased amount is calculated on the price index (CPI IW BY 2001=100) of essential commodities. Rise in the Dearness allowance is being calculated on the basis of the changes in the prices of the essential commodities during the periods between January and June and the period between July and December.

But, it takes around three months since the release of the price index for the months of June and December to arrive at the calculation for the increase in the Dearness allowance. With the result that the increase due from the month of July is being given only from the month of October and the amount due from January is being given only from the month of April.

And, because of this situation, the amount due for the left-behind period of two months is to be settled as arrears. Practical problems arise in the calculation of the arrears amount and also problem arises in clarifying the doubts of the beneficiaries. Pensioners especially, are more tensed up over this procedure.

To avoid this situation, the price index during the periods from November to April and from May to October can be taken into account and the increase in the Dearness allowance calculated based on the information relevant to these periods. The amount can be disbursed from the months of January and July as per this calculation so that there’s no due as arrears.

We imaginatively tested this method to find out the result. It was found out that there was no tangible change in the increase amount if calculated on the basis of the price index obtained during the months of April and October.

Message

In November, 2014, the Prime Minister has launched an Aadhaar-based biometric verification system “Jeevan Pramaan” to enable pensioners to submit a digital Life Certificate on-line. This is an important step in realising the vision of Digital India. This facility has been provided in addition to the other existing methods of submitting Life Certificate.

2. “Jeevan Pramaan” aims at sparing the pensioners and family pensioners the trouble of visiting bank or any other pension disbursing agency for submission of Life Certificates. It is possible to submit the Life Certificate from personal computers and laptops or by visiting a conveniently located Common Service Centre. Further, banks will ensure authenticity of pension and other payments by linking Aadhaar number with bank accounts and PPO numbers.

3. All the pensioners/family pensioners are, therefore, advised to get themselves and their family members registered for Aadhaar at an early date and furnish this information to the Pension Disbursing Authority so as to avoid inconvenience at the time of submission of Life Certificate in November, 2015.
