Dear Seniors,
I would like to gather more information on various price indices and its effect on DA. I am from Tamilnadu and getting information on monthly basis about various indices specifically for even my district too..
We do not have VDA but have Basic, DA and other allowances. Can anyway I can make use of this information. Please advise
And I understand that National / Festival Holidays wages are eligible only if an employee worked proceeding and succeding days of a holiday. Is this correct? Please advise

Dear If you don’t have VDA as a salary component in your company, then you don’t need to worry about CPI. CPI is directly related to VDA and nothing else. Regards

CPI is nothing but VDA the name is termed differently in different states, CPI is Consumer Price Index and VDA is Variable Price Index. So both are the same.
Coming to the point of getting the Holiday wages, the employee got to be present either on succeeding or Proceeding days of the holiday, if he is absent on succeeding and proceeding days of the holidays the holidays in between the days of absent are treated as absent and no holiday wages to be paid by the employer.

My dear Awvik
It is amazing to find such lack of awareness.
Please do something about it by explaining in detail.
VDA - Variable Dearness Allowance (which is based on CPI)
CPI - Consumer Price Index (which is tracked every week by NCAER, FinMin).
VDA is in addition to FDA (Fixed Dearness Allowance) and is the variable component of DA.
VDA changes every quarter (which is notified) as a percentage change to CPI.

Dear Mr. Hansdah,
That's the problem with a few members in this site. They are so confident about themselves that they don't really bother what comments they are posting. They don't realize that what they are posting is affecting the new generation of HR professionals who are not aware of such complicated matters such as VDA or CPI. They are getting the wrong information which in turn is affecting there HR knowledge.
By the way I have posted earlier on matters related to VDA and CPI. So if anyone is interested he or she can check with my earlier post.

From India, New Delhi
Again can any one explain the mathematical relationship between CPI & VDA. On increase of how many points we should raise wages at what rate
