Gross Salary for Newly Appointed Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant / PA SBCO

Author of blog does not accepts any responsibility in relation to the accuracy, completeness, usefulness or otherwise, of the contents.

A request was made by a candidate regarding salary structure of newly appointed  Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistant (PA/SA) and the details are as follows

B.P = Basic Pay
D.A = Dearness Allowance
H.R.A = House Rent Allowance
T.A = Transport Allowance

The above are used for calculating the total salary of a Postal/Sorting Assistant
PA/SA’s are included in the Pay Scale of  5200-20200  with a grade pay of 2400.

Calculation:

1. Basic Pay (BP) = 9910 (7510 + 2400)

2. Dearness Allowance = Dearness Allowance (DA) is given by the Government in every six months ie, in January and July every year. From Jan 2013, the Dearness Allowance is 80%. Thus the present DA is 80% of 9910 which works out to 7928.

3)    House Rent Allowance (HRA) = HRA is calculated based on the city where you are working. In India the cities have been classified into three categories as “X”, “Y” and “Z”.

Expected DA From Jan 2014 - Possibility Of Increase Of DA By 11%

As per the present state DA has reached 90 %. At this juncture, Central Government Employees are eagerly waiting to know the percentage of increase in the month of Jan 2014. The DA increase in the month of Jan 2014 does have certain importance in it. Because when DA reaches 100%, there is a possibility of increase of certain allowances also simultaneously.

As per the recent publication of AICPIN value, DA has reached the height of 93.93 % at present. During the coming four months, if the AICPIN value increases by 1point, there is a possibility of DA reaching the 100 % mark. Likewise, if the average becomes 2point, there is a chance of reaching 101 % as DA. During the ensuing four months, based on the value calculation of AICPIN, it would be possible to calculate DA accurately. Still, there is maximum possibility of increase of DA by 11 %

The calculation on expected  DA FROM JAN 2014 is as follows:
