AICPIN of May 2019 and impact on central D.A., wef 01.07.2019

The consumer price index for May 2019 has been increased by 2 points and reached at 314.

We know that Dearness Allowance is calculated on last 12 months' average of AICPIN No.

We are yet to get the number of June 2019 to calculate it finally. If the index remains at this point (314) for June 2019, D.A. will be 5% from 1st July 2019.

If the index slips even one point in the next month, increase in D.A. will come down to 4%.

But it may be assured that in any case. D.A. will not come down below 4%.

So we have to wait till 31st July 2019 (when the AICPIN data of June 2019 will be published by the labour bureau) to know the exact increase in D.A. ( 4% or 5%) with effect from July 2019.
