Until the 8th Central Pay Commission is established and its recommendations are put into effect, Central Government Employees find themselves relying on Dearness Allowance increases to somewhat mitigate the relentless rise in the cost of living. This eagerly anticipated adjustment is a financial lifeline for many within this workforce, as it cushions the impact of ever-increasing living expenses.
Dearness Allowance, or DA, for Central Government Employees is intricately tied to the All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW), which is calculated as a 12-month average. The compilation and publication of these vital indices fall under the purview of the Labour Bureau, a department operating under the Ministry of Labour. Each month, new CPI-IW figures are unveiled, and the index for a particular month becomes available at the end of the following month. This index, the CPI-IW, assesses retail price inflation relative to a predetermined base year, which is currently 2016. You can access the latest CPI-IW data on the Labour Bureau's website here.
