Cabinet approves Productivity Linked Bonus for Railway Employees

Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days’ wages for the financial year 2017-18 for all eligible non-gazetted Railway employees

About 11.91 lakh non-gazetted Railway employees are likely to benefit from the decision

Payment of 78 days’ PLB to railway employees has been estimated to be Rs. 2044.31 crore

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the payment of Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days’ wages for the financial year 2017-18 for all eligible non-gazetted Railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel). The financial implication of payment of 78 days’ PLB to railway employees has been estimated to be Rs.2044.31 crore. The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of PLB to the eligible non-gazetted railway employees is Rs.7000/- p.m. The maximum amount payable per eligible railway employee is Rs.17,951 for 78 days. About 11.91 lakh non-gazetted Railway employees are likely to benefit from the decision.

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′.

Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus to the Railwaymen for the year 2013-14

AIRF General Secretary writes a letter to Railway Minister regarding the Productivity Linked Bonus for Railway employees…

All India Railwaymen’s Federation
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi-110055

No.AIRF/387(252)

Dated: August 21, 2014

Hon’ble Minister for Railways,
Ministry of Railways,
Rail Bhawan,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus to the Railwaymen for the year 2013-14

Pooja Festivals are approaching very fast, but unfortunately uptill now, Railway Ministry has not given any proposal to us for the Productivity Linked Bonus(PLB) to the Railwaymen for the year 2013-14.

In this connection, it is worth mentioning that, last year, there have been lot of agitations due to Railway Ministry’s move for arbitrary reduction in the number of days of PLB.

As you are aware that, with less number of staff, Railwaymen are running high number of trains. Passenger and Traffic units have increased.

We hope, this time PLB should be more than the last year. We, therefore, hope, that the sentiments of the Railwaymen should be kept while deciding PLB and payment of the PLB should be arrange at an earliest.

With kind regards!

Yours faithfully,

BONUS FLASH NEWS : AIRF PUBLISHES THE DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT SITUATION…

BONUS FLASH NEWS : AIRF PUBLISHES THE DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT SITUATION…
Ministry of Finance wants to reduce the number of days proposed by Railway Board & pressurizing to change the formula for PLB….
ALL INDIA RAILWAYMEN’S FEDERATION
Today on date 18.10.2012,  I met Hon’ble Minister for Railways at 15:30 hrs. and apprised him about  AIRF’s demand of PLB, that according to us there would have been PLB of more than the proposed number of days by the Railway Board.
It has been given to understand that the Ministry of Finance wants to even reduce the number of days proposed by the Railway Board and is pressurizing for change in PLB Formula. I explained the MR that the
formula for PLB is based on a Tripartite Agreement achieved after great sacrifices of the Railwaymen, for which AIRF had to go on general strike. Therefore, any change in the formula of PLB or reduction in number of days or amount will tantamount to great injustice and would lead to avoidable nationwide agitation by the Railway employees.

 

I also emphasized for the waival of Written Test for the purpose of recruitment under LARSGESS. Hon’ble MR has promised that he will definitely look into the matter.
The MR has also said that after some time he will discuss various issues submitted by the AIRF to him. He has further assured us to implement all the earlier agreements as well those  to be arrived at with Ministry of Railways in near future.
The MR also applauded and appreciated the leadership of AIRF, and sought its cooperation.
I also emphasized that, so far as cooperation is concerned, AIRF has always tried its level best to cooperate, but the cause of the workers must be supreme and the solution will definitely improve productivity as well as
industrial relations will also be strengthen.The meeting of the Cabinet is scheduled to be held at 17:30 today.
We will try that the orders for PLB should be release by tonight.
With best wishes!
