# Expected DA for Bankers A Huge Hike Awaits – Latest Update

Amid the news of merger of some public sector banks in India, it is somewhat a welcome message that Expected DA for Bankers will see a huge hike for the period from November 2018 to January 2019.

The consumer price index (CPI) of the month August 2018 was announced on 30th September 2018 and the CPI was 301 where as the CPI of July 2018 was 301 . So there is no doubt that DA will see an unprecedented hike.

Now if we assume the CPI of Sep 2018 be 301, taking conservative value and calculate the DA for the period from November 2018 to January 2019, we will get a huge hike compared to previous DA for bankers. DA for Bankers : Calculate Yours

# How to calculate Expected DA for Bankers:

Lets have a look how DA for bankers will be calculated for the aforementioned period.

We have, CPI for July 2018 = 301

CPI for August 2018= 301

CPI for September 2018 = 301 (Assumption, will be declared on 31st October 2018)

So we get total for 3 months= 903

Then, DA= {(903*4.63*4.93) – (4440*3)}  /  (12*10)

= (20611.7877    –   13320)  /   120

= 7291.7877   /   120

= 60.7648975

= 60.8 (rounded off)

So, if the CPI for September 2018 does not change then the DA will be 60.8% and since DA for Aug 2018- Oct 2018 was 54.1% which shows a hike of DA of 6.7% at  least bankers can expect.

Now we will show some more probable calculations regarding DA

1) CPI of July  =  301,  CPI of Aug  =  301 , CPI of Sep =302 (assume)

then, DA=61%  (increase of 6.9%, since previous DA was 54.1%)

2) CPI of July =  301, CPI of Aug =  301, CPI of Sep  =  303 (assume)

then, DA  =  61.1%  (increase of 7%, since previous DA was 54.1%)

3) CPI of July  =  301,  CPI of Aug =  301, CPI of Sep  =  300  (assume)

then, DA=60.6%   (increase of 6.5%, since previous DA was 54.1%)

4) CPI of July =301, CPI of Aug= 301, CPI of Sep  = 299  (assume)

then, DA = 60.4% (increase over 6.3%, since previous DA was 54.1%)
