railway-employees-bonus-78-days

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval to pay Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days wages to eligible non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) for the financial year 2016-17. About 12.30 lakh non-gazetted Railway employees are likely to benefit from the decision. This payment will be made before Dussehra/Puja holidays, bringing a smile to lakhs of families ahead of the festive season.

The payment of PLB would serve as an incentive, and result in motivating a large number of Railway employees, particularly those involved in execution and operations of railways, to improve their productivity and ensure safety, speed and service for Railway customers. Indian Railways operates on the principle of maximum public welfare, and in this context, this bonus payment will help in improving accountability and efficiency in railways operations.

The financial implication of payment of 78 days’ PLB to railway employees has been estimated to be Rs. 2,245.45 crores. The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of PLB is Rs. 7,000/- p.m. The maximum amount payable per eligible railway employee is Rs. 17,951 for 78 days.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2016-17.

The undersigned is directed to convey the sanction of the President to the grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) equivalent to 30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2016-17 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 31.3.2017 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2016-17 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 I 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.

AIRF: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

AIRF: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

AIRF

 No.AIRF/387

Dated: September 7, 2017

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

Ref.: Meeting with the AM(Staff), Railway Board held on 04.08.2017

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

 

Please refer to our discussion held in the chamber of AM(Staff), Railway Board, on the above subject matter on 4th August, 2017. All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) has already explained in detail its viewpoint in respect of calculation formula for payment of PLB to Railwaymen.

You may recall that, PLB has been an outcome of the bilateral agreement between Ministry of Railways and Staff Side Federations, which was arrived at on 22.11.1979. The formula for calculation of PLB, that was formulated as a result of above-mentioned agreement, is sacrosanct, on the basis of which payment of PLB is being made to entitled railway employees every year till last financial year.

AIRF is totally against any deviation in the well settled formula devised to calculate PLB payable to railway employees under the said agreement.

It is, therefore, urged that, payment of PLB for financial year 2016-17 should be made on the basis of established formula as mentioned above and there should not be any effort to make any amendment in the same as also number of days, calculated last year for payment of PLB, should not be reduced, else this will lead to unwarranted impairment in industrial peace.

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

 

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to be paid in the current year 2017

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/PLB-3 dated 02/08/2017.

 

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the discussions held on 4th August, 2017 in the Chamber of Additional Member (Staff), wherein the Federation has explained the need to acord approval for payment if Productivity Linked Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages as was done in the previous years.

 

NFIR again places the facts as below for immediate action for sanction:

  • The output given by Railway employees has been very much on high side particularly in the context of non-filling of over 2lakh vacancies and additional burden borne by the existing staff since the last two years.
  • Capital input should not be taken into consideration as the utilization of the said capital is not in the hands of workers.
  • During the previous six years, the PL Bonus was paid to the Railway employees equivalent to 78 days wages, therefore any reduction in number of days would cause serious resentment in view of the fact that Rail Workforce has been contributing for productivity inspite of difficult working conditions and heavy shortage of staff due to non-filling of vacancies and non-creation of new posts for new assets built.
  • In fact, the Railway Ministry should consider motivating the staff by granting more number of days wages than previous year at this juncture.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly take action for sanctioning the P.L. Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages. It is also requested that payment may be arranged before commencement of Dussehra Pooja Holidays.

 

Federation may be kept apprised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

Sub: Revision of Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units

Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units Staff were last revised vide Railway Board’s letter No.2008/M(W)/814/38 dated 27.07.2010 after implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC and revision of pay scales etc. based on that.

Since recommendations of the VII CPC have already been accepted by the government, and most of them have been implemented by the Ministry of Railways as well, resulting in revision of various pay scales etc., it would be quite appropriate that, Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor be revised for Workshops and Production Units Staff w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC at an early date.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Yours Faithfully,

sd/-

General Secretary

Grant of ad-hoc bonus for 30 days to Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF Personnel

Grant of of ad-hoc bonus for RPF/RPSF Personnel for the financial year 2015-16

Grant of ad-hoc bonus for 30 days to Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF Personnel for the financial year 2015-16. The calculation ceiling has been enhanced to Rs.7000 with effect from 1.4.2016.

The benefit will be admissible subject to the following and conditions:- Only those Group C & D RPF/RPSF personnel who were in service on 31.3.2011 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2015-2016 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible to the eligible personnel for period of continuous service during the year ranging from six months to a full year, the eligibility period being taken in terms of number of months of service (rounded to the nearest number of months).

The quantum of ad-hoc bonus will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate 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 there after be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of Rs.7000/- (where actual average emoluments exceed 7000), ad-hoc bonus for thirty days would work out to 7000×30/30.4 = Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

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

In the matter where the aforesaid provisions are silent, clarificatory orders issued vide this Ministry’s letter No.E(P&A)II-88/Bonus-3 dated 29.12.1988, as amended from time totime, would hold good.

All the Group C & D RPF/RPSF personnel. regardless of whether they are in uniform or out of uniform and regardless of place of their posting, shall be eligible only for ad-hoc bonus in terms of these orders.

History behind the Diwali Bonus: What is Diwali Bonus?

What is Diwali Bonus?

Initially there was a concept of salary to be paid on a weekly basis to the workers in India, particularly the textile and flour mill workers in Bombay.

So you received 52 salaries in a year.

But when British started ruling India they came up with concept of Monthly salary which meant you were getting paid for 48 weeks only.

So if we have 4 weeks in a month, 13 salaries should have been distributed but as per a monthly structure they were giving only 12 salaries in a year.

When people realized that this was a loss to them in terms of one salary many protest rallies were organised in Maharashtra during 1930-1940.

The British then came up with a solution to this problem.

After discussion with labour leaders about how to distribute this 13th salary and they decided Diwali being the biggest festival of India, they would distribute this 13th salary during Diwali. Today this is called the Diwali Bonus. This was implemented from 30th June 1940. Many don’t know the history behind the Diwali Bonus and hence this post.⁠⁠⁠⁠

Reference OM No7/24/2007.E-11 (A) dated 3.10.2016
Dear,
We invite your kind reference to the above cited letter granting Non PLB to Central Govt employees & casual/ contingent workers. Similar orders have also been issued for the personnel in Railways, Defence and Postal Establishments etc where PLB is applicable.
While in the cam of regular employees – both PLB & Non PLB – the calculation ceiling for payment of Bonus was raised to Rs 7000/- for the years 2014/15 & 2015.16. In the case of Casual Labourers and casual labourers with temporary status, the said ceiling continues to be pegged down at Rs 1,200/-. It may kindly be noted that the said ceiling of Rs 1,200/- in the case of Casual Workers end casual workers with temporary status was determined in the yew 1999 when the ceiling for regular employees was Rs 2500/-
In the case of regular employees the said ceiling was raised to Rs 3.500/- in the year 2006 and again to Rs 7,000/- in 2016 (retrospectively from 2014-15) whereas for casual workers and Casual workers with temporary status it remained at Rs 1.200/- all along slaw 1999-2000. The emoluments of Casual Workers and Casual workers with temporary status is now proportionate to the wages of regular employees.
We request you to kindly get the matter examined and explore the possibilities of raising the ceiling limit to Rs 7000/- for casual workers and casual workers with temporary status on par with the regular employees.
Thanking You,
Yours Faithfully
