For employees of the central government:
Dearness allowance = ((Average AICPI (reference year 2001 = 100) during the last 12 months -115.76) / 115.76) * 100
For employees of the central public sector after 1/1/2007:
Dearness allowance = ((Average AICPI (reference year 2001 = 100) during the last 3 months -126.33) / 126.33) * 100
Where, AICPI represents the consumer price index of all of India.
As of January 1, 1996, the allocation of costs is included to compensate for price increases or inflation in a specific year. As a result, it is reviewed twice a year, that is, once on January 1 and then on July 1.
