Respected Madam

Sub: Reduction of one day Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to the employees of OFB & DGQA under Department of Defence Production against the Cabinet decision and Government Orders.

The above demand was discussed as Item No.14 of the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 7-3-2019. The extract from the minutes of the above meeting is given below for your kind ready reference.

  ‘Staff Side stated that inspite of the Govt, orders issued on the basis of Cabinet approval, the employees of Department of Defence Production, are eligible for 41 days Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB). However despite the recommendations by the Hon’ble Defence Minister the Department of Expenditure is reducing one day PLB for the past 11 years, and is approving only 40 days PLB. Similarly in case of EME also such reduction is taking place every year.

JS (Pers), Dept. of Expenditure stated that the issue is under consideration and in consultation with Dept. of Defence Production/MoD. The staff side requested for an early decision in the matter.

  Inspite of a period of more than 5 months after the meeting of the Standing committee of National council (JCM) Department of Expenditure have not yet issued any instructions to Department of Defence Production. Since this is an outstanding demand it is requested that necessary instructions may be issued the DDP for payment of the one day PLB amount reduced from the actual PLB due to the Defence civilian employees of OFB, DGQA and DGAQA at the earliest. A copy of your instruction may please be endorsed to this office.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely
