Subject: Grant of ad-hoc bonus for 30 days to the Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPFIRPSF personnel for the financial year 2016-17.


The President is pleased to decide that all Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF personnel, may be granted ad-hoc bonus equivalent to 30 (thirty) days emoluments for the financial year 2016-1 7, without any wage eligibility ceiling. The calculation ceiling for payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders shall be monthly emoluments of~ 7000/-, as revised w.e.f01.04.2014 vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure)’s OM No.7/4/2014/E.III(A), dt. 291h
August, 2016.

2. The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:-
a) Only those Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF personnel who were in service on 31.3.2017 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2016-2017 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible to the eligible personnel for period of continuous service during the year ranging from six
months to a full year, the eligibility period being taken in terms of number of months of service (rounded to the nearest number of months).
b) The quantum of ad-hoc bonus will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate 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. 7000/-(where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), ad-hoc bonus for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000 x 30/30.4 = ~ 6907.89 (rounded off to Rs. 6908/-)

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

d) Various points regarding regulation of Ad-hoc/Non-PLB Bonus are given in the Annexure.

e) All the Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF personnel, regardless of whether they are in uniform or out of uniform and regardless of place of their posting, shall be eligible only for adhoc bonus in terms of these orders.

3. This issues with the concurrence ofthe Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
