Dear Sir/ Madam,
Dearness Allowance for Workmen and Officer Employees in banks for the months of November, December 2021 & January 2022 under XI BPS/ 8th Joint Note dated 11.11.2020
We have to advise that the confirmed All India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base 1960=100) for the quarter ended September 2021 as published by Govt. of India in its website Labour Bureau are as follows:-
July 2021 – 8072.70
August 2021 – 8085.85
September 2021 – 8105.57
The average of the above is 8088.04 and accordingly the number of DA slabs works out to 434 (8088.04 — 6352= 1736.04/4 = 434 Slabs) The payment of DA for the months August, September & October 2021 was at 397 Slabs. Hence, there is an increase of 37 slabs of DA 1.e. 434 -397 Slabs for payment of DA for the months November, December 2021 & January 2022.
Accordingly, in terms of clause 7 of the 11th Bipartite Settlement dated 11.11.2020 and clause 3 of the Joint Note dated 11.11.2020, the rate of Dearness Allowance payable to Workmen and Officer employees for the months of November, December 2021 & January 2022 shall be 30.38% of ‘pay’.
