Meeting of National Council (JCM) with DOPT today : Will Bonus ceiling be revised ?

Govt. has approved 78 days' bonus to Railway employees and 40 days' bonus to postal employees with old monthly ceiling or Rs 3500/- per month. Central employees expecting higher bonus this year followed by definite assurance made by Govt. earlier regarding hike in the calculation ceiling got disappointed. Government yet to revise the calculation ceiling of Rs 3500/- per month.
There is an important meeting scheduled with DOPT  to discuss the issues raised in the Charter of Demands by the Staff Side. Union leaders are certain to raise the bonus issue in this meeting and Govt. stand to this issue is widely expected.

It may be mentioned that in the press release issued by Minisry of Labour and employment on 1st September 2015, Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State(IC) for Labour and Employment appealed the Central Trade Unions to withdraw the strike and assured the following
2. “For the purpose of bonus, the wage eligibility limit and calculation ceiling would be appropriately revised. It is proposed to revise the wage eligibility limit from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 21,000 and calculation ceiling from Rs. 3500 to Rs. 7,000 or the minimum wage notified by the appropriate Government for that category of employment, whichever is higher. With the proposed revision of the minimum wages, the average calculation ceiling would be about Rs.10,000."
Government is yet to revise the ceiling and issuing bonus orders like the earlier years till now.
Let's wait and see the outcome of the meeting today at 3 PM.

Cabinet has since approved the payment of bonus with the earlier guidelines, keeping in view the urgency of payment action before the festival.It is presumed that the difference if any can be claimed by citing reference to the recently issued orders.

Lot of days had been passed but the bonus stays in the pre historic days as such the amount must be revised to the appropriate respectable level.
