Productivity-Linked Bonus to Railwaymen for the year 2015-16

AIRF

No.AIRF/387 Dated: August 3, 2016

The Secretary(E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi Kind Attn: Shri Dhruv Singh, EDPC-I, Railway Board

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity-Linked Bonus to Railwaymen for the year 2015-16

In reference to our discussion with the Additional Member (Staff), Railway Board, on 2nd August, 2016, we have explained threadbare about the modalities and norms fixed for the Productivity-Linked Bonus to railwaymen for the year 2015-16.

It is a well-known fact that, the formula envisaged for calculation of number of days for PLB in November 1979 has been sacrosanct and the federations had never agreed for any alteration in that formula.

Railway Board is quite aware that the railwaymen are putting their best efforts for running Indian Railways System smoothly and efficiently 365X24X7 days even by laying their precious lives, therefore, any alteration with PLB Formula, which reduces the number of days, will demotivate them and will be proved counter-productive to the interests of the Indian Railways. Though the number of railwaymen is being reduced, they are carrying more number of passenger and freight trains, therefore, it is quite evident that, productivity of the railwaymen has increased to a great extent.

AIRF has already explained that, any reduction in the number of days of PLB in comparison to last year will never be tolerated, and that can lead to further agitations.

Here it is pertinent to mention that, every time when the government changed, ceiling of the PLB also changed in the Railways. Last time (in 2009-10) when PLB ceiling was changed from Rs.2500 to 3500 p.m., railwaymen were paid PLB along with the arrear. Similarly, we expect that, this time also, since PLB ceiling has been enhanced from Rs.3500 to Rs.7000 p.m., railwaymen will be paid PLB @ Rs.7000 p.m. along with arrear.

Yours faithfully

Revision of Ceiling for payment of Bonus in the Bonus Act 1965: AIRF writes to Hon’ble Minister for Railways

AIRF writes to Hon’ble Minister for Railways for Revision of Ceiling for payment of Bonus in the Bonus Act 1965:-

All India Railwaymen’s Federation

No.AIRF/387

Dated: August 23, 2014

Shri Sadananda Gowda,
Hon’ble Minister for Railways,
Rail Bhawan,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Revision of Ceiling for payment of Bonus in the Bonus Act 1965

The Payment of Bonus Act 1965 was amended in the year 2007. This Act was called as Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Act, 2007.

In Section 12 of the Principal Act(1965), payment of minimum bonus was revised from Rs.2500 to Rs.3500 w.e.f. 1st April, 2006 through Payment of Bonus(Amendment) Ordinance 2007(8 of 2007) and subsequently passed by the Parliament through Bill No.89/2007. The same was incorporated in the PLB Orders issued for payment of PLB for the year 2006-07 and 2007-08(RBE No.142/2008).

The Ministry of Railways was requested several times by the All India Railwaymen’s Federation for approaching the Government of India for amendment to Section 12 of the Bonus Act 1965 to remove the ceiling of Rs.3500, mentioned in the Section 12 of the Payment of Bonus(Amendment) Act, 2007. But so far Ministry of Railways has not approached the Government of India to amend the Act to pay real wages to the Railwaymen as PLB, which is causing lot of hardship to the Railway Workers due to high escalation of prices of all commodities after the enactment of the amendment to the Bonus Act 1965 in the year 2007.

You are, therefore, requested to consider the plea made by the All India Railwaymen’s Federation and approach the Ministry of Labour, Government of India to amend Section 12 of the Bonus Act, duly removing the ceiling, mentioned in Section 12 of the Payment of Bonus(Amendment ) Act, 2007 so as to enable the Railways to pay real wages as PLB.

As Pooja Festival is approaching fast and orders for payment of Productivity Linked Bonus to Railway employees are likely to be issued shortly, you are requested to approach Hon’ble Minister for Labour to propose an amendment to Section 12 of the Payment of Bonus(Amendment) Act, 2007 to remove the ceiling so as to enable the Railwaymen to get real wages as Bonus.

Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
