The Union Cabinet on 7 October 2015 approved the payments of Productivity-Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days’ wages for the financial year 2014-2015 to about 12.58 lakh non-gazetted railway employees excluding RPF/RPSF personnel.

It is estimated that the total payment of 78 days' PLB to railway employees will be around 1030.02 crore rupees.

The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of PLB to the eligible non-gazetted railway employees is 3500 rupees per month. The maximum amount payable per eligible railway employee is 8975 rupees for 78 days. This is in disparity to the productivity-linked bonus equivalent to a month’s wage paid to other central government employees and even public sector units such as NTPC.

Between 2010-2011 and 2013-2014, railway officials had also received the same bonus amount, equivalent to 78 days’ pay, with a wage ceiling of 3500 rupees.
