  • Average CPI is (6551.03 + 6573.85 + 6596.68) / 3 = 19653.08/3 = 6551
  • Deduct 4440 slabs from average CPI (6551 - 4440) = 2111
  • Divide 1913.20 by 4 to convert to quarterly DA slabs (2111/4) = 527.75 or 527.
  • DA Slab for next Quarter will be 527.
  • Multiple 533 with 0.10%, is payable as DA = 527 x 0.10% = 52.70%
  • So DA Payable for for February 2018, March 2018 and April 2018 will be 52.70%.
  • Slabs for February 2018 - April 2018 = 527.
