Subject: – Raising of Bonus Payment Ceiling to the Central Government Employees.

Reference: – The payment of Bonus (Amendment) Bill 2015 [view].


The Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Bill 2015 was passed by both the houses of the Parliament. The amendment provides that the existing Ceiling limit of Bonus for 30 days Rs. 3,500/- is enhanced to Rs. 7,000/- for 30 days. This amendment will take effect from 01.04.2014 (A copy of the Bill passed in the Parliament is enclosed for your kind ready reference).
bonus+arrearsYou are aware that any change in Bonus Act would be an indicator while deciding the Payment of Bonus to the Central Government Employees. Accordingly, every time when Bonus Act is amended raising the payment ceiling limit, it is extended to Central Government Employees also. This issue was also raised by the Staff Side in the Standing Committee Meeting of National Council (JCM) held on 09th October, 2015.
It is therefore requested that steps may be taken for issuing Government Orders for enhancing the Bonus Payment Ceiling limit of Central Government Employees both PLB and Adhoc Bonus to Rs. 7,000/- w.e.f 01.04.2014 and arrears of PLB and Adhoc Bonus for the year 2014-2015 may be paid to the employees.
An earlier and favorable action is solicited.

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
