We need AICPI (IW) (All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for the months from July 2017 to June 2018 to determine Dearness Allowance with effect from July 2018.

With actual CPI for the months from July 2017 to April 2018 and estimated CPI from May 2018 to June 2018, we have to determine DA from July 2018.

Expected DA from July 2018 : Estimation : 1

A conservative estimation of keeping CPI for May and June 2018, at the same level which was recorded in the month of April 2018 viz., CPI of 288, gives us an increase of 2% in DA from July 2018.
