No.7/24/2007/E III (A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
E III (A) Branch

New Delhi, the 22nd September, 2010.


Subject: – Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2009-10.


    The undersigned is directed to convey the sanction of the President to the grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) equivalent to 30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2009-10 to the Central Government employees in Group `C’ and ‘D’ and all non-gazetted employees in Group `B’, who are not covered by any Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. The calculation ceiling of Rs. 3500/- will remain unchanged. The payment will also be admissible to the Central Police and Para-military Personnel and Personnel of Armed Forces. The orders will be deemed to be extended to the employees of Union Territory Administration which follow the Central Government pattern of emoluments and are not covered by any other bonus or ex-gratia scheme.

2.         The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:

(i)         Only those employees who were in service on 31.3.2010 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2009-10 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible to the eligible employees for period of continuous service during the year from six months to a full year, the eligibility period being taken in terms of number of months of service (rounded off to the nearest number of months).

(ii)         The quantum of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate Non-PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for one day, the average emoluments in a year will be divided by 30.4(average number of days in a month). This will thereafter be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of Rs. 3500 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 3500), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs.3500×30/30.4=Rs.3453.95 (rounded off to Rs.3454/-).

(iii)         The casual labour who have worked in offices following a 6 days week for at least 240 days for each year for 3 years or more(206 days in each year for 3 years or more in the case of offices observing 5 days week), will be eligible for this Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) Payment. The amount of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) payable. will be (Rs.1200×30/30.4 i.e.Rs.1184.21 (rounded off to Rs.1184/-). In cases where the actual emoluments fall below Rs.1200/- p.m., the amount will be calculated on actual monthly emoluments.

(iv)         All payments under these orders will be rounded off to the nearest rupee.

(v)         The clarificatory orders issued vide this Ministry’s OM No.F.14(1O) – E.Coord/88 dated 4.10.1988, as amended from time to time, would hold good.

3.         The expenditure on this account will be debitable to the respective Heads to which the pay and allowances of these employees are debited.

4.         The expenditure incurred on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) is to be met from within the sanctioned budget provision of concerned Ministries/Departments for the current year.

5.         In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders are issued in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

Govt announces bonus for non-gazetted employees

New Delhi, Sep 22 (PTI) In a festival gift to non-gazetted central government employees, the Centre today announced a bonus of up to Rs 3,500 for 2009-10. All the central government employees in Group C and D and all gazetted employees in Group B who are not covered by any productivity linked bonus scheme will get bonus equivalent to 30 days emoluments, Finance Ministry said in an office memorandum.

The payment will also be admissible to the Central Police and para-military personnel and personnel of armed forces, it said. Only those employees who were in service on March 31, 2010 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2009-2010 will be eligible for payment, it said.

Meanwhile, the Central Government also issued notification for enhancing the Dearness Allowance for its 88 lakh employees and pensioners by 10 percentage points. This comes as a follow up to the approval given last week by the union Cabinet to hike the DA from 35 per cent to 45 per cent of the basic salary of the central government employees with retrospective effect from July 1, 2010.

The increase in DA comes just a few days after the organised workforce was cheered by one percentage point increase in the interest rate on the provident fund to 9.5 per cent.
