There is good news for federal government employees. The central government has announced bonuses for its employees on the eve of Diwali. The government approved the scheme to provide a non-protective Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) equivalent to 30 days salary to Central Government employees. Therefore this Deepavali of Central Government employee will be brighter than ever before.
The benefit of this notice is available to all non-gazetted employees of Group C and Group B of the Central Government. Employees who do not fall under the productivity linked bonus plan will benefit. The Ministry of Finance has provided this information. According to the ministry, ‘Under this order, eligible personnel of the Central Auxiliary Forces and the Armed Forces will also benefit from the Adhoc Bonus. In addition, employees in Union Territories who follow the federal payroll system and do not fall under any other bonus process will also receive this benefit.
It is noteworthy that the benefit of the Adhoc Bonus will be available only to employees who were in service on 31-3-2021 and provided at least six consecutive months of service in the year 2020-21. These employees will be paid a salary commensurate with six consecutive months of service in a year.
The average of the amount of the ad hoc bonus, the ceiling of the amount to be taken into account, whichever is less, is done accordingly. For example, if you want to calculate a day’s ad-hoc bonus, the average pay for a year is divided by 30.4 (average number of days in a month). After that, the bonus will be multiplied by the number of days awarded.
Ordinary workers who have worked in offices for at least 240 days or at least 3 weeks or more than 6 weeks each year (in offices that work 5 days a week for 3 years or more, 206 days each year) will be eligible for this non-PLB amount. The amount of ad-hoc bonus for them is – 1200 × 30 / 30.4 = Rs 1184.21. For those whose salary is less than Rs.1200 per month, this amount will be calculated based on actual monthly salaries.
