Not only is ls unnecessary, but it will break your script if any filenames contain spaces or other pathological characters.

Not that it would work anyway with the dollar sign after .dbf

I think this should work:
for i in *.dbf; do /usr/local/gpg2/bin/GPG2 -o $i -d  ${i/.dbf/.gpg}; done

BTW appsdba.nitin: The loop in you original command was not working because of a superfluous single quote right after the double quote.
