  3. Dec 2016 - 6277.12
Bank DA for Feb 2016, March 2016 and April 2017
  • Average CPI is (6345.60 + 6322.77 + 6277.12) / 3 = 18945.49/3 = 6315.16
  • Deduct 4440 slabs from average CPI (6315.16 - 4440) = 1875.16
  • Divide 1902.57 by 4 to convert to quarterly DA slabs (1875.16/4) = 468.79 or 469.
  • DA Slab for next Quarter will be 469.
  • Multiple 469 with 0.10%, is payable as DA = 469 x 0.10% = 46.90%
  • So DA Payable for for February 2017, March 2017 and April 2016 will be 46.90%.
  • Slabs for Feb 2017 - April 2017 = 469.  
  • Number of slabs for the Previous Quarter (Oct, Nov & Dec 2016) = 478 slabs 
  • Decrease in the slabs for the current quarter = (478 - 469) or (47.80% - 46.90%) = 9 slabs or 0.90%.
So, The tentative decrease in DA Slabs is 9 slabs for the month of February 2017, March 2017 and April 2017.



So, The Dearness Allowance (DA) payable to employees/Officers is 469 slabs for February 2017, March 2017 and April 2017 Quarter.

Expected DA for May, June and July 2017 will Update soon.
