Dear Lalnunmawia,
There may not be any difference, in terms of trade or skill. Earlier Department of Public Enterprises had categorised DA in terms of salary, i.e 50%, 60%, 75%, 100% etc. But to provide full nutralisation of DA to all, now it is made uniform.

Total 15184
Average 6 months 2531
Average 10 location 253
So CPI 256 is average of 10 locations for 6 months from Jan-14 To Jun-2014.
The linking factor for converting the 2001 series to 1982 series is 5.18 for Mumbai Centre

Therefore 253 x 5.18 = 1311
1982 Series CPI is 1311 - base index of 501 = 810

810 x 4.10 neutralization factor = 3321
