The DPE Order dated 2-8-2021: Please click here ida-unfreeze.pdf

Calculation as per DPE method-new

March 2021 - 119.6 × 2.88 = 344.45 (119.6 is Index in new Series)
April 2021 - 120.1 × 2.88 = 345.89 (345.89 is Index in earlier Series)
May 2021 - 120.6 × 2.88 = 347.33
Total of 3 Months = 1037.67
Average of 3 months = 345.89
Increase over Link Point of 126.33: 345.89 - 126.33 =219.56
219.56 × 100 = 21956
21956 ÷ 126.33 = 173.8

Therefore we are entitled to 173.8 % IDA from 1st July, 2021 for which orders are to be issued. In the same way June index is 121.7 (2016=100) and if we convert it to 2001= 100 series it comes to 350.50

Earlier 2001 = 100 series Index figures were always in round figures. But while converting 2016 = 100 figures to 2001=100 with convertion factor of 2.88 DPE is taking upto two decimal Points. (Please see work sheet of DPE Orders)

[Above input is from Com. V V S Murthy, former AGS at Hyderabad.]

Earlier, the All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers, on which our IDA rate is fixed, was based on a Series with 2001 point = 100. Now a new Series with base year 2016=100 point is adopted. And the AICP Index is published as per new Series. For those who continue in 2007 Pay Scales, the new Index in new Series has to be converted in to old Series by multiplying with a factor of 2.88. That is why 119.6 (new Series) is converted in to 344.45 (earlier Series.) For those CPSE employees who got pay revision from 1-1-2017 the IDA is increased from 18.4% to 23.2%. ...PSR
