I can confirm that it does include the additional net income that would arise from an increase to the Congestion Charge.  As I said in my response to 0142/2014, this is however subject to a public consultation which runs until 14 March 2014. Once this is complete and TfL have analysed the data, I will make my decision as to whether the proposed increase should be introduced.

Since 2011 the daily Congestion Charge has remained at £10 (£9 if paid using CC Auto Pay or £12 if paid the next charging day) with the cost of the charge falling in real terms over this period.
