The Productivity Linked Bonus on Railway covers all non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) who are spread over the entire country. Payment of PLB to eligible railway employees is made each year before the Dusshera/ Puja holidays. The decision of the Cabinet shall be implemented before the holidays for this year as well. For the year 2017-18 PLB equivalent to 78 days’ wages will be paid which is expected to motivate the employees for working towards improving the performance of the Railways.

Background:

Railways were the first departmental undertaking of the Government of India wherein the concept of PLB was introduced in the year 1979-80. The main consideration at that time was the important role of the Railways as an infrastructural support in the performance of the economy as a whole. In the overall context of Railway working, it was considered desirable to introduce the concept of PLB as against the concept of Bonus on the lines of ‘The Payment of Bonus Act – 1965′.

(E.III-A Branch)

North Block, New Delhi,
8th October 2018

Office Memorandum

Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2017-18

The undersinged is directed to convey the sanction of  the President to the grant of Non-productivity Linked Bonus to  30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2017-18 to the Central Government employees in Group ‘C’ and all non-gazetted employees in Group B, who are not covered by any Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. The calculation ceiling for payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders shall be monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000/-, as revised w.e.f 01/04/2014 vide OM No.7/4/2014-E.III(A), dated 29th August, 2016. The payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders will also be admissible to the eligible employees of Central Para Military Forces and Armed Forces. The orders will be deemed to be extended to the employees of Union Territory Administration which follow the Central Government pattern of emoluments and are not covered by any other bonus or ex-gratia scheme.

2. The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:-

(i) Only those employees who were in service as on 31.3.2018 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2017-18 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible to the eligible employees for period of continuous service during the year from six months to a full year, the eligibility period being taken in terms of number of months of service (rounded off to the nearest number of months):

(ii) The quantum of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate Non- PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for one day, the average emoluments in a year will be divided by 30.4 (average number of days in a month). This will, thereafter, be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

(iii) The casual labour who have worked in offices following a 6 days week for at least 240 days for each year for 3 years or more (206 days in each year for 3 years or more in the case of offices observing 5 day week), will be eligible for this Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) Payment. The amount of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) payable will be (Rs.1200×30/30.4 i,e.Rs.1184 21 (rounded off to Rs.1184/-). in cases where the actual emoluments fall below Rs.1200/- p.m., the amount will be calculated on actual monthly emoluments.

(iv) All payments under these orders will be rounded off to the nearest rupee.

(v) Various points regarding regulation of Ad-hoc / Non-PLB Bonus are given in the Annexure.

3. The expenditure on this account will be debitable to the respective Heads to which the pay and allowances of these employees are debited.

4. The expenditure to be incurred on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) is to be met from within the sanctioned budget provision of concerned Ministries/Departments for the current year.

5. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned. these orders are issued in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

September 24,2018

Sub:- Reduction of one day Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to the employees of OFB & DGQA under Department of Defence Production against the Cabinet decision and Government orders.

Ref : Minutes of the meeting of the Standing Committee of the National Council (JCM) held on 25th October 2016 under the Chairmanship of Secretary.

Dear Madam,

In the Standing Committee meeting held on 25/10/2016 the following decision was taken on the above Agenda item :

“Staff Side reiterated that pending, decision on PRIS and PRP as recommended by both 6th and 7th CPC, the existing Cabinet approved formula should be in operation. Hence the reduction of one day’s PLB in the Department of Defence Production and EME under MOD is not Justified. So the unpaid PLB should be given back to the employees to avoid any litigation on the subject. Secretary (P) desired that JS (Pers) may re-examine the matter”

It is now almost 2 years after above decision taken in the Standing Committee meeting. However no instructions has been issued by the Department of Expenditure to pay back the PLB days deducted to the employees of Department of Defence Production (OFB, DGQ and DGAQA) and EME of MOD. Since the affected employees are pressing hard it is request that you may kindly arrange to issue necessary instruction in this regard.

A copy of your instruction may please he endorsed to this office.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
S/d,

The General Secretaries of Affiliated Unions of NFIR Dear Brother,

The demand of NFIR vide PNM Item No. 12/2017 was discussed in the Board PNM meeting held on 13th /14th November, 2017. The NFIR’ s Agenda provides detailed background of Incentive Bonus rates from time to time and the need for upward revision of the rates in the wake of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrices for Workshops and PU employees on Indian Railways.

3rd Meeting of Committee for recommendation of hourly rates of incentive bonus and bonus factors of Workshops/PUs has been held this day 26th September, 2018 at Rail Bhavan, New Delhi.

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report

The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Commission mandate that it examines the existing schemes for payment of bonus and their impact on performance and productivity.

Consultation with Stakeholders was Considered Important: The system of Performance Linked Bonus (PLB) and Ad hoc Bonus have been prevalent in the Central Government for a fairly long time. Therefore, for the replacement of the existing bonus schemes with any other incentive scheme, prior consultation with the stakeholders was considered essential

The Commission feels that there is strong need to create a culture of performance in government – from establishing standards of performance, to measuring, and promoting people based on performance. To emphasize on the culture of performance, the Commission has recommended that all the non-performers in the system should be phased out after 20 years. The Commission has recommended that Performance Related Pay should be introduced in the government and that all Bonus payments should necessarily be linked with productivity.

Bonus Schemes and Performance Related Pay

The Commission feels that any Performance Related Pay (PRP) for Central Government employees should provide a credible framework to drive performance across ministries/departments. Rather than a new system design, the favoured approach should be an incremental adaptation which can operate within the existing framework of rules with minor changes that can enable smooth implementation and operationalization of PRP.

In this backdrop, the Commission recommends introduction of the Performance Related Pay for all categories of Central Government employees, based on quality RFDs, reformed APARs and broad Guidelines, as enumerated above.

The Commission also recommends that the PRP should subsume the existing Bonus schemes. The Commission notes that there could be a time lag in implementing the Performance Related Pay by different departments. Till such time, the existing Bonus Schemes should be reviewed and linked with increased profitability/productivity under well-defined financial parameters.


Bonus Calculation: To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

The Cabinet Secretary,

New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Grant of ‘ad-hoc bonus’ for the Central Autonomous Bodies for 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018- reg.

Kindly call for our earlier letter of even number dated October 30, 2017(copy enclosed), whereby it was requested, while thanking the government for having implemented VII CPC recommendations in case of staff of the Central Autonomous Bodies, that, their genuine grievance in respect of payment PLB/Ad-hoc bonus to these staff should also be considered .

It would be pertinent to recall that, Finance Ministry used to extend the benefit of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also at par with other Central Government employees till the year 2014-15. Surprisingly, employees of the Central Autonomous Bodies have been deprived of this benefit after the year 2014-15 without assigning any bonafide reason thereto.

It is, therefore, requested that, necessary action may kindly be taken for granting ad-hoc bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also on par with the Central Government employees for the years 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018, as was being done till the year 2014-15 in the larger interest of justice and parity.

Sincerely Yours,

No. IRTSA/Memo RB/Incentive/2018-7

Date: 26.07.2018

Mrs. KALYANICHADDA, Executive Director/ME(W),
Convener, Committee for revision of hourly rate of Incentive Bonus,
Railway Board, Rail Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001.
CC by Email – edmew@rb.railnet.gov.in

Sub: Revision of hourly rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factors of Workshops/PUs staff under CRJ Pattern & GIS – Regarding Financial implications thereof.

Ref: 1. Railway Board’s Order No. RBE-I/201/23/39, dated 06.07.2017& 18.05.2018.

2. Our memorandum dated 02.07.2018 & meeting with you on 04.07.2018. Respected Madam,

With reference to our earlier memorandum and our meeting with you on 04.07.2018, we submit this memorandum for the kind consideration of the Committee for revision of hourly rates of Incentive Bonus on estimated additional expenditure on account of revision of incentive rates based on minimum pay of respective Pay Level in 7th CPC Pay Matrix divided by 208 (standard working hours per month) – as per formula followed after 5th Pay Commissions.

Proposed revision of Incentive Rates is estimated to cost additionally only 1.28 percent in terms of cost of man power.

There are 2,38,546 workshop Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ staff (2,19,682 Group ‘C’ & 18,864 in Group ‘D’) of Mechanical, Electrical and S&T covered under incentive scheme as on 03.2017. (Strength of workshop artisan & helper as on 31.03.2017 is given in Table-1)

Average annual wage per employee for Group ‘C’ in Workshop staff including pay, all allowances, PLB, pension & gratuity (Senior Technician, Supervisor (Ministry), Technician Grade-I, II & Ill) is Rs. 7,09,494. (Ref. Statement 40 (II) (b) of Indian Railways Annual Statistical Statement 2016-17)

Average annual wage per employee for Group ‘D’ Workshop staff including pay, all allowances, PLB, pension & gratuity (semi-skilled & unskilled) is Rs. 5,66,147. (Ref. Statement 40 (II) (e) of Indian Railways Annual Statistical Statement 2016-17)

If incentive rates are revised based on minimum of respective Pay Level divided by 208, additional expenditure is estimated to be Rs.214.09 crore.

In terms of equivalent man power it will be 3,061 Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ workshop staff (2,847 men in Group ‘C’ and 213 in group ‘D’).

This will be only 1.28% of 2,19,682 strength of Group ‘C’&’D’ workshop staff available in Indian Railways as on 31.03.2017. Details of the calculation is attached in Table-2.

It is therefore requested that, no reduction in allowed time / man power may please be proposed for implementation of revised incentive rates, since the estimated additional cost equal to only 1.28% man power which will be compensated by additional work load due to the addition of rolling stocks & new trains.

Hoping for a favourable consideration & thank you in anticipation,

Yours faithfully,

Harchandan Singh General Secretary, IRTSA

AIRF: Bonus for autonomous bodies 2016-17

AIRF: Bonus for autonomous bodies 2016-17.

No.NC/JCM/2017 Dated: October 30, 2017

The Cabinet Secretary,
(Government of India),
Cabinet Secretariat,
Rashtrapathi Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Grant of ad-hoc bonus for the Central Autonomous Bodies for 2015-16 and 2016-17 – reg.

While thanking your good-self immensely for having extended 7th CPC benefits to the Central Autonomous Bodies on the plea made by the undersigned, one more genuine grievance pertaining to them has come to the notice of the NCJCM(Staff Side). As a tradition, after declaring PLB/Ad-hoc bonus for the Central Government Staff, Railway Staff, Defence(Civilian) Staff etc., Finance Ministry used to extend the same to the Central Autonomous Bodies too till 2014-15. Not knowing the reasons, the Central Autonomous Bodies’ Staff were deprived of the same since then. Therefore, it is candidly requested to take necessary steps for granting of ‘ad-hoc bonus’ to the Central Autonomous Bodies also on par with the Central Government Staff for the years 2015-16 and 2016-17.
