  2. 30.01.2021 – December 2020 AICPIN – 345 (118.8 x 2.88 = 342)
  3. 31.12.2020 – November 2020 AICPIN – 345 (119.9 x 2.88 = 345)
  4. 27.10.2020 – October 2020 AICPIN (Base year – 2016) – 344 (119.5 x 2.88 = 344)

  1. Dec 2020 AICPIN – 118.8 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 7809.74
  2. Nov 2020 AICPIN – 119.9 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 7882.06
  3. Oct 2020 AICPIN – 119.5 x 2.88 x 4.63 x 4.93 = 7855.76

For those pensioners, who retired after 01.11.2017, 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 DR is:

  • Average of the quarter (Oct, Nov, Dec) = 7849.19 [(7855.76+7882.06+7809.74) / 3 = 7849]
  • Number of DA slabs = 7849- 6352= 3100 / 4 = 374 slabs
  • DA rate effective from 01.01.2021 = 26.18 % (0.07 % of 374), formula applicable for those pensioners, who retired on or after 01.11.2017.
