Govt fixes calculation ceiling for non-productivity linked bonus at Rs 7,000

NEW DELHI: The Finance Ministry has fixed the calculation ceiling for computing non-productivity linked bonus (ad hoc bonus) for Central Government employees at Rs 7,000, implying that an employee will be entitled to a maximum bonus of Rs 6,908.

“The quantum of Non-PLB will be worked out on the basis of emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower,” the Department of Expenditure said in its office memorandum.

Giving an illustration, the memorandum said that given the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs 7,000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs 7,000), the non-productivity linked bonus (Non-PLB) for 30 days would work out to be Rs 6,908. (AGENCIES)
