Hon’ble Minister for Railways.
Sub: Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to the Railway employees at revised calculation of Rs. 7000/- p.m.-reg.Ref: (i) Item No. 4 of 55 Point Charter of Demands of NFIR.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. I/10/Part IV dated 08/09/2015 & 07/10/2015 addressed to Hon’ble MR.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No.E.(P&A)ll-2015PLB-4 dated 07/10/2015.
Kind attention is invited to NFIR’s communication dated 08/09/2015 to the Hon’ble MR to take action for removal of calculation ceiling of Rs. 3500/- p.m. for payment of PL Bonus to the Railway employees in view of Government’s announcement dated 1st September 2015 for relaxing calculation ceiling limit to Rs. 7000/- p.m.

NFIR, therefore, requests to kindly see that Railway employees are paid P.L. Bonus with revised calculation ceiling of Rs. 7000/- p.m.
