How to calculate Dearness Allowance from the year 2006:It is very simple ,suppose if you want to calculate Dearness Allowance with effect from Jan-12, get the average of monthly All India Consumer Price Index for industrial workers with the base year 2001=100 for the preceding 12 months and apply the same in the following formula

Dearness Allowance = (Avg of AICPI for the past 12 months - 115.76)*100/115.76

(ignore fractions)

Here 115.76 means average of price index from Jan 2005 to Dec 2005.

So to calculate Jan 2012 DA rate (to be announced) we need Price index average from Jan 2011 to Dec 2011.As per Labour Bureau, Department Statistics, Government of India website index for Jan 2011 to Dec 2011 has already been declared ,

Dearness allowance (01.01.2012)=(191.50-115.76)*100/115.76=65.42 (ignore fraction)=65 %
