7th Pay Commission: Government employees to get more than double of the existing hourly incentive once new formula is implemented
7th Pay Commission: Government employees working at the workshops and production units are soon going to receive a major gift in terms of hike in their allowance. Sources have revealed to Zee Business Online that Modi 2.0 Government is mulling, under the 7th Pay Commission's recommendations, to pay an hourly bonus to the central employees employed at the Indian Railways workshops and production units. As per the sources, the Indian government would soon announce its decision in this regard.
It was revealed that the Indian Railways employees and administration had a meeting in regard to 7th Pay Commission's hourly bonus and allowances and that this took place in May 2019. And there was a conclusive decision to implement the 7th Pay Commission's hourly bonus and other allowances to the above said Rrailways employees. But, a notification in this regard is yet to be announced and the railway employees are eagerly waiting for this notification.
Speaking about the government's nod to implement 7th Pay Commission's bonus and allowances 'as soon as possible' Shiv Gopal Mishra, General Secretary at All India Railway Men's Federation said, "After the implementation of 7th Pay Commission's recommendations, all employees should get bonus and allowance as per the 7th CPC recommendation but even after the in-principal approval to paying hourly bonus and other allowances to the railway workshop and production units, the notification in this regard is still awaited." Mishra said that the officials who met with the railway employees in May 2019 had promised that a notification in this regard would be soon announced.

For readers' information, there is a provision in the Indian Railways rules, that if an employee posted at a workshop or production unit works beyond working hours, then they will be given an hourly incentive bonus. But, to calculate this bonus, there is a fixed formula. If the Indian Railways had paid an hourly bonus or incentive to its above-mentioned employees under this formula, there could have been a huge burden on the Indian Railways exchequer. So, to overcome this problem, a new formula was coined on which both Indian Railways administration and employees agreed. Under the new formula on which there is a consensus between the Indian railways and its employees, the employees would get more than double of the hourly incentive after the implementation of new formula.
