I feel it may be even 23% due to the fact that inflation was still above 10% in Nov & Dec 2008.

Sir,

Will the DGs of various CPOs can get the act together and fight for placing Second-in-Command in PB-4.
There is wll established equality between Ltcols and Second-in-Command and any change will have negative effects.

actual inflation is more than 10% in retail which is the actual rate at which govt should sanction the DA rate and not at whole sale rate index.
