for calculating dearness allowance why do we take the money wage of previous year Instead of taking real wage of previous year

Dearness allowance is paid to mitigate the impact of inflation on the people. The difference between money wage and real wage represents inflation. This difference is paid in the form of dearness allowance so that the increase in general price level can be nullified with an equal increase in wage rate.
