  1. Sir.
    what is this..? abvoe 51 paise will be treated as one Rupee
    and 50 paise and below 50 paise will be treated as 0 rupee.
    Our Fin. Minister do not know this..? What the Trade unions
    say for this cheating the central employees, for leaving the 0.97% points of price index, for calculating DA to the central emplee? S.Sambandan chennai

  2. The figure of 185 points for December 2010 works out to an average increase of DA for the last 12 months to 51.97%. The DA will be rounded to 51% which means an increase of 6% DA. It looks as though it is manipulated to keep the December figure at 185 points to deprive the employees 1% more.

  3. Dear Sir,
    After ascertaining the AICPIN of December 2010, the DA for the period JAN 2011-JUNE 2011 may be hiked to 52 % from the existing DA of 45 %.
