78 days Productivity Linked Bonus was announced during cabinet meeting of Central Government on 08.10.2015. But ceiling remained same i.e. Rs. 3500. Keeping same ceiling attracted lots of anguish and concern from railway employees. AIRF too had demanded scrapping of Ceiling. Therefore AIRF has once again reiterated its stand on ceiling removal and General Secretary/AIRF has written a D.O. letter to Sh. Suresh Prabhu Minister for Railways in this respect.


D.O.No.AIRF/387 Dated: October 7, 2015

Respected Shri Suresh Prabhu Ji,

Sub: Removal of ceiling of PLB to the Railwaymen

While thanking you for announcing payment of 78 days PLB to the Railwaymen for the year 2014-15, we demand removal of ceiling of PLB from Rs.3500, considering favourably the apathy of the Railway employees as also dedicated hard working of the Railwaymen.

We earnestly hope that, your good honour shall pursue this demand of the Railwaymen with the concerned.

With Kind Regards!





Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu,
Hon’ble Minister for Railways,
Ministry of Railways
