As per 11th BPS, how to calculate slabs and DA of bank employees? What is the formula of slab and DA calculation of bank workmen and officers?

AICPIN calculation for slabs and DA rate of bankers:

  1. December 2021 AICPIN = 125.4 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 8243.62
  2. November 2021 AICPIN = 125.7 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 8263.34
  3. October 2021 AICPIN = 124.9 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 8210.75

In terms of 11th bipartite settlement BPS/Joint Notes, 6352 points of DA was merged with the ‘pay’ and DA rate was fixed at 0.07 % per DA slab. So, the calculation of Bank DA is:

  • Average of the quarter (Oct, Nov, Dec) = 8239.24 [(8210.75+8263.34+8243.62) / 3 = 8239.24]
  • Number of DA slabs = 8239– 6352 = 1887/ 4 = 471 slabs
  • DA rate effective from 01.02.2022 = 32.97% (0.07 % of 471)
