Sub: Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) for 2020-21.

 2. Madam, I would like to draw your kind attention towards the ceiling of monthly emoluments for calculation of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus. GENC has been demanding for enhancing this ceiling.

3. The Ministry of Finance vide it’s OM No. 7/4/2014-E-IIIA dated 29.08.2016, issued orders for enhancing the ceiling of monthly emoluments from Rs.3500/- to Rs.7000/- for calculation of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus w.e.f the financial year 2014-15. In this regard, I would like to draw your kind attention towards the Secretary to Govt. of India/Ministry of Labour & Employment’s DO No.51040/4/2015-IR(PG) dated 28th August, 2015 (copy enclosed), addressed to the General Secretary/ BMS, whereby it was stated that “… The Government Is considering to revised calculation ceiling from the present level of Rs.3,500/- per month to Rs.7,000/- or the minimum wages for the scheduled employment as fixed by the appropriate Government, whichever is higher’. As per latest guidelines issued by the Ministry of Labour & Employment, the Minimum Wage for a Skilled worker is Rs.20,384/- (in ‘A’ Area). Also, after implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission, the minimum basic pay of a Central Government Employee is Rs.18,000/-. Under these circumstances, the monthly ceiling of Rs.7,000/- for calculation of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus, is not justified at all and hence needs to be enhanced.

4. Hence, in view of above, I request you to consider revising the calculation ceiling of monthly emolument from Rs.7000/- to the minimum wages, in consultation with the Ministry of Labour & Employment, as per assurance made vide it’s DO letter dated 28th August, 2015.

With regards,

Yours Truly,

(SADHU SINGH)
