According to a Labor Bureau press release, the All-India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) will remain unchanged in November 2022. As a result, the Dearness Allowance for January 2023 is nearing completion! According to the Seventh Central Pay Commission, this month’s CPI-IW data shows a 4% increase, resulting in a 42% increase in DA/DR for Central Government Employees and Pensioners. Only a change in the AICPIN index for the month of December 2022 of more than 7 points or more than 5 points decrease from the current level could change the prediction of ‘Expected DA from January 2023’! Otherwise, the 42% Dearness Allowance (DA) beginning in January 2023 is almost certain!

If the AICPIN index number for the month of December will be 132.5, the additional DA/DR for Central Government employees, pensioners, and family pensioners will be 4%! The total DA/DR will move up to 42%!
