what will be the rate of DA from July 2014 ?
The AICPIN for Industrial Workers for Seven Months from July 2013 to January 2014 have been released by Labour Bureau. The AICPIN for last two Months i.e December2013 and January 2014 have been declined by 4 and 2 points and pegged at 239 and 237 respectively. At present it is quite difficult to predict the trend of the Consumer Price Index for remaining 5 Months, as so many factors like election and policies of new government involved in it.
However, according to these seven months AICPIN, we have three Probabilities …
|No||Probabilities||Expected Increase in Dearness allowance from July 2014||Expected DA from July 2014|
|1||If this declining trend continues for remaining 5 Months by 1 or 2 points||3%||103%|
|2||If the trend continues with movement between plus or Minus 2 points||5%||105%|
|3||If it continues with increasing trend by 2 points||7%||107%|
According to the AICPIN released till now, the above possibilities have been arrived. As per above prediction the expected dearness allowance from July 2014 will be from 103% to 107%.
