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

4,000-page Joint Service Memorandum (JSM) submitted by the three service chiefs to the 7th CPC, OROP has been dropped

4,000-page Joint Service Memorandum (JSM) submitted by the three service chiefs to the 7th CPC, OROP has been dropped

Armed forces seek pay parity with civil servants: Indian Express

Parity with civil servants, tax-free risk allowance and attractive entry-level pay, are some of the demands jointly sought by the armed forces from the seventh central pay commission (CPC). The demands form a part of a 4,000-page Joint Service Memorandum (JSM) submitted by the three service chiefs to the CPC this week. Interestingly, One Rank One Pension (OROP) — a demand since 1982 — has been dropped as the forces “consider it approved” as announced by the government on the floor of Parliament.

Considering “application of civilian pay structure to services despite differential cadre structure, rank structure and promotional prospects,” as the prime fault line, the JSM seeks extension of Non-Functional Upgradation (NFU) to armed forces personnel. The NFU, which has so far been applicable only to IAS officers and other class A services, entitles them to the pay scale of the highest promoted officer of their respective courses. “Thus, even if an officer is not promoted, he gets the pay of a higher grade by virtue of another officer of his batch reaching higher rank. The same is applicable to IPS, IFS and other such services. We have asked for extension of NFU to the armed forces,” an Army official said.

While civil servants retire at 60, the retirement age of officers of the armed forces can vary with their rank. “Also, a major general equivalent picks up the rank after 32 years of service whereas a joint secretary reaches the pay scale in 18 years of service. We have sought “concordance of status” based on length of service and not rank,” the official said.

Besides tax exemption from risk pay the recommendations also include an “edge in entry level pay to improve attractiveness of defence services” and “incentives for selection grade ranks.

Headed by justice A K Mathur CPC will be submitting its recommendations to the government by January 2016.
