  1. Calculation seems to be wrong. All the Central Government Employees got 17% DA for 18 months from 1.1.2020. In 1st Table (17% to 21%) is OK. In 2nd Table (instead of 21% to 24% it should be from 17% to 24%). Similarly in 3rd Table (instead of 24% to 28% it should be from 17% to 28%). Calculation as proposed to be considered for Basic Pay as well as Conv. Allowance, which will disclose actual contribution of each Central Government employee towards COVID-19 and definitely that will be more as being shown in the calculator.

  2. Erroneous calculation
    Dearness allowance drawn should be taken as 17 percent throughout the period from 1.1.20 to.30.06.21
    First 6 months. O k
    From 1.7.20 to 31.12.20 and from 1.1.21 to 30.06.21 the DA drawn taken as 21 percent and 24 percent

  3. I think wrong calculation…Arrears amount should be calculated from Jan 2020 in every installment instead of preceding installment…

  4. Let this be our contribution towards covid fund but gov may think of 100% tax relief to all employers and pensioners

  5. Wrong calculation 3 table only loss 1 type da but calculate 4+3+4 per example Jan 2020 loss 4 but also from July 4+3 and after Dec 2020 4+3+4 so 1740*18=31320
    1784*6= 10704
    Total only da = 58080 and also da on travelling allowance 1800 2400 3600 slab each rate 4.3.4 % only example 1800 72*18. 54*12, 72*6 2356
