At present the DA (as per 9th BPS) is @ 110.10%, for the months of  February,  2015 to April  2015.    The CPI has moved up only marginally much during January 2015, and it actually fell for the month of February 2015.   In March it again is expected to marginally go down  Thus, in the given scenario, there is not much scope for DA increase from May, 2015, and in all probabilities will remain at the same level i.e. 110.10% or at maximum it may move margianlly up but less than 0.50%.      Thus, we projected that DA for May 2015 will be at same levels i.e. 110.10%

Bankers to get two saturdays / month as holiday, but when ?

As per the MOU signed by IBA and UFBU with reference to Xth Bipartite Agreement, second and fourth saturdays of every month will be bank holidays. Though they will have to work the other saturdays full time. The question among bankers that from when they can enjoy this extra holidays as it was hard previously that banks would be closed on alternative saturdays from April itself. But practically bank employees may have to wait a bit more to get the holidays. As per information available with us, at first the final bipartite agreement will be signed, possibly within two months. Then it will be sent to central Govt. and the Government will finally declare the additional holidays. Most likely bank employees may get the saturday holidays after a couple of months only.

Be cautious about "fake" D.A. order : Finance Ministry warns

As we are aware that central employees and pensioners are eagerly waiting for the announcement of Dearness Allowance, which is due from 1st January 2015. Though as per convention, it is announced in the month of March, but this time cabinet is yet to approve the hike.(There is a possibility of announcement on 2.4.15).
In the meantime some persons have circulated a fake order for payment of D.A. It looks like almost original (A copy of which is available with us also but we decided not to publish the fake order to avoid any possible misunderstanding) and is being  widely circulated in social medias. It may have been created for simple fun on "April Fool" day but it may have wide impact.
Ministry of Finance issued an O.M. warning against this fake order as
"It is clarified that the O.M. dated 30.03.2015, purportedly issued by the Ministry of Finance, is a fake and that no such instructions have been issued by the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance. Accordingly, all Ministries/Departments and Central Government offices are hereby advised not to take cognisance of these fake instructions being circulated in Government offices."
