    `DHARITRI’, 5/4 – THE GOVT OF ODISHA PAID 58+7=65% DA SINCE JANUARY 1, 2012. GOVT DA WILL BE 65+7=71% ON JULY 1, 2012.

    Expected DA from July 2012
    Perhaps it is very early to calculate the status of additional Dearness allowance from July, 2012 for Central Government employees and Pensioners, before releasing the AICPIN for the balance of four months i.e.March, April, May & June 2012. Anyway we can assume the additional Dearness allowance from July 2012 will be at least 6%. The existing Dearness allowance is 65%, it will become as 65% + 6% = 71%.

  4. Gupteshwar Nath Prajapati says:

    Expected DA w.e.f. July 2012 in anyway not more that 6% i.e. 71% from July 2012

    DA from 01.07.2012 is surely in between 5% to 6% only.
    If the price Index value continuing the present value
    (i.e 199 points) for the next 04 months DA will be getting only 5% (65+5=70%).
    Other wise, can Expect 6% DA (65+6=71%), if the index value increases by 5 points of the present value in next T.SREENIVASA RAO, KAKINADA

  8. ANIL GOVIL says:
