Expected Dearness Allowance from July-2011

May 30, 2011,  CGE News.

Apart from annual increment, which falls in 1st July every year, all the Government Employees are very much excited to know the rate of Dearness Allowance from 1st July 2011.The reason for their excitement to know the D.A from July 2011 is quite simple. Though the Annual Increment also brings some adequate amount of money to their pay package, they feel no excitement in it. Because every body knows and is sure that they will get 3% of their Pay in the pay band and Grade Pay as the Increment of every year and they make it counted. But as for as D.A is concerned nobody knows what will be the rate of increase in Dearness Allowance, as the AICPI Number for the Industrial Workers for the month of June 2011 will be announced probably on 31st July 2011.The amount of increase in Dearness Allowance will make their pay packet big. Unexpected increase in salary will decrease their expected financial burdens. This is the reason many of us curiously searching for the prediction over Dearness Allowance.

AICPIN-IW for the past three months have been already announced by Labour Bureau, Department Statistics, Government of India in its Web site. According to it AICPIN-IW for the month of January 2011 is 188, Febraury 2011-185 and March 2011 is 185. AICPIN-IW for the remaining three months ie April, May and June 2011 have yet to be announced. So this is not the right time to answer correctly to the question of what will be the Dearness Allowance from July 2011? But as per the past 9 months average of monthly All India Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year 2001=100, we can expect that the hike in Dearness Allowance from July 2011 will be around 6% to 7%

New CRB took Over on Friday

News Belated ….

Shri Vinay Mittal, IRTS who took over as the chairman of the Railway Board (CRB) following superannuation of the present CRB, Vivek Sahai, on Friday, has superseded a few senior railway officials. His seniority in the Indian Railways service is said to be 16th. Prior to his joining, he was general manager of South Eastern Railway ( SER). The PMO had given clearance to his name on Thursday itself on the basis of eligibility-cum-suitability criteria.

According to the Railway Board sources, there were two other senior officers who were in the race for the coveted post of CRB. They were Board members sh.Sanjeev Handa and Sh.A P Mishra. Incidentally, both of them had worked as GM of the East Central Railway (ECR), Hajipur.

An officer of 1975 batch of the Indian Railway Traffic Services (IRTS), Sh. Mittal has worked on various posts of the Indian Railways and piloted many projects of railways successfully. He had also worked as the DRM at Bilaspur, the AGM, Central Railway, and then he was posted as the GM, North East Railway (NER). Mittal was executive director (traffic transportation) for sometime at the Board and he also had a brief stint as additional member of the Board. He will have two years tenure as CRB, sources said. LET US WISH HIM ALL THE BEST AND SO ALSO TO IRSSE UNDER HIM.

ToI says that Shri.  Mittal’s two-year stint as GM, SER, worked in his favour to bag the top job. Also, Mittal’s appointment is being seen by many as Trinamool Congress chief  Ms. Mamata Banerjee’s continuing clout over her erstwhile portfolio that she relinquished after taking over as chief minister of West Bengal.
