The Labour bureau has revised the Base Year for new series of AICPIN for Industrial Workers. Accordingly the DA Calculator from January 2021 has been updated.
Base revision of CPI -IW from 2001=100 to 2016=100
The ongoing series of CPI-IW is with base year 2001=100 covering 78 centres spread across the country. To capture the latest consumption pattern of working class family, the Labour Bureau had undertaken the base revision exercise of CPI-IW with base 2016=100.
Accordingly the Revision of All India Consumer Price Index with base year 2016=100 is being done and AICPN for September 2020 was declared as 118.1. Linking factor for the conversion of new series index to previous series on base 2001=100 is 2.88.
Updated DA Calculator from January 2021
Hence we have modified the DA Calculator from January 2021 by incorporating the new series of AICPIN with Base Year 2016=100. The last two AICPIN will be released based on New Series only.
So you can enter the new series of AICPIN for remaining two months in the DA calculator provided below and calculate the approximate rate of Dearness Allowance from 1.1.2021.
