Employees Diwali Bonus: To give good news to lakhs of these employees, the government can announce Diwali bonus very soon.

Indian Railway Diwali Bonus: Lakhs of employees of Indian Railways are going to get good news very soon. The government may announce Diwali bonus for railway employees very soon. As Diwali bonus, employees are given an amount equal to their 78 days’ salary every year. This Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) is given to all non-gazetted employees (Group C and Group D) of Railways to increase productivity and motivation. However, this year the Indian Railway Employees Federation (IREF) has written a letter to the Railways demanding to increase its PLB.

PLB found on 7th Pay Commission

IREF said in its letter that although the Railways implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on January 1, 2016, PLB is still calculated and paid on the basis of the minimum pay prescribed by the 6th Pay Commission. In the 6th Pay Commission, the minimum salary for Group D employees was only Rs 7000, whereas in the 7th Pay Commission it was increased to Rs 18,000.

Employees will benefit so much

According to the federation, all Group C and Group D employees get only Rs 17,951, which is calculated on the basis of minimum monthly salary of Rs 7000. Their demand is that considering the minimum wage as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, it should be increased to Rs 46,159.

Fought bravely during the Corona period

The federation said in its letter, “During COVID-19, when a nationwide lockdown was imposed and people were afraid to step out of their homes, railway employees risked their lives to continue operating trains, even though they had to Had to face very adverse circumstances.”

Dissatisfaction among employees

The Federation said that the Railways has created a new record in its operation. Due to this, the income of Railways has also increased. Railways itself has accepted this in its quarterly bulletin. The Federation has said that there is a lot of dissatisfaction among the employees regarding the issue of PLB and the Board should resolve this issue as soon as possible.

While announcing PLB in October last year, the Ministry of Railways had said that 11.27 lakh non-gazetted railway employees are likely to benefit from the bonus. In this, the burden on the government for payment of PLB for 78 days to railway employees was estimated at Rs 1832.09 crore. The salary calculation limit prescribed for payment of PLB is Rs 7,000/- per month. The maximum amount payable per eligible railway employee is Rs 17,951 for 78 days.
