Bank DA for Nov 2016, Dec 2016 and Jan 2017
  • Average CPI is (6391.25 + 6345.60 + 6322.77) / 3 = 19059.62/3 = 6353.20 
  • Deduct 4440 slabs from average CPI (6353.20 - 4440) = 1913.20
  • Divide 1913.20 by 4 to convert to quarterly DA slabs (1913.20/4) = 478.30 or 478.
  • DA Slab for next Quarter will be 478.
  • Multiple 478 with 0.10%, is payable as DA = 478 x 0.10% = 47.8%
  • So DA Payable for for November 2016, December 2016 and January 2017 will be 47.80%.
  • Slabs for Nov 2016 - Jan 2017 = 478.  
  • Number of slabs for the Previous Quarter (Aug - Sep 2016) = 455 slabs 
  • Increase in the slabs for the current quarter = (478 - 455) or (47.80% - 45.50) = 23 slabs or 2.30%.
So,The tentative increase in DA Slabs is 23 slabs for the month of November 2016, December 2016 and January 2017.
