7th Pay Commission: DA will be announced in July with new formula, calculation changed, new salary will be decided in this way

7th Pay Commission: The Ministry of Labor and Employment has changed the calculation formula regarding Dearness Allowance.

7th Pay Commission: Another new update has come regarding Dearness Allowance (DA). After increasing DA in March, now it will have a separate increase in July. But, in July, the formula for calculating DA calculation will change. Let us tell you, DA of central employees is getting increased by 3% at present. Means the total DA has reached 34%. In such a situation, now the change in the next dearness allowance is a matter of discussion. On the one hand, there has been a steady decline in the AICPI Index. At the same time, now the calculation of dearness allowance will also be done in a changed way.

Dearness allowance is given to central and state government employees to improve their cost of living level. This allowance is a part of the salary structure, so there should be no difference in the standard of living of the employee even after the rise in inflation. Dearness allowance (DA) is given to government employees, public sector employees and dearness relief to pensioners.

Which is the new formula?

The Ministry of Labor and Employment has changed the calculation formula regarding Dearness Allowance. The Labor Ministry has changed the base year 2016 for Dearness Allowance (DA Calculation). A new series of Wage Rate Index (WRI-Wage Rate Index) has been released. The Labor Ministry said that the new series of WRI with base year 2016=100 will replace the old series of base year 1963-65.

How is Dearness Allowance calculated?

The amount of dearness allowance is worked out by multiplying the current rate of dearness allowance of the 7th Pay Commission with the basic pay. The current rate of percentage is 12%, if your basic pay is Rs 56,900 DA (56,900 x12)/100. Percentage of Dearness Allowance = Average of CPI for the last 12 months – 115.76. Now the amount that comes will be divided by 115.76. The score that will come will be multiplied by 100.

How to calculate your salary?

For salary calculation under 7th Pay Commission (7th Pay Commission Salary hike), DA has to be calculated on the basic salary of the employee. Suppose the minimum basic salary of a central employee is Rs 25,000, then his DA calculation will be 34% of 25,000. 34% of Rs 25,000 i.e. total will be Rs 8500. This is an example. Similarly, those with the rest of the salary structure can also calculate it according to their basic salary.

Dearness allowance is taxable

Dearness Allowance is fully taxable. Under the Income Tax rules in India, separate information about dearness allowance has to be given in the Income Tax Return (ITR). Meaning the amount you get in the name of dearness allowance is taxable and tax will have to be paid on it.

There are two types of dearness allowance

There are two types of Dearness Allowance (DA). First Industrial Dearness Allowance and second Variable Dearness Allowance. The Industrial Dearness Allowance is revised every 3 months. This is for the employees working in the public sector of the central government. It is calculated on the basis of Consumer Price Index (CPI). The Variable Dearness Allowance is revised every 6 months. Variable Dearness Allowance is also calculated on the basis of Consumer Price Index (CPI).
