While in the cam of regular employees both PLB & Non PLB the calculation ceiling for payment of Bonus was raised to Rs 7000/- for the years 2014/15 & 2015.16. In the case of Casual Labourers and casual labourers with temporary status, the said ceiling continues to be pegged down at Rs 1,200/-. It may kindly be noted that the said ceiling of Rs 1,200/- in the case of Casual Workers end casual workers with temporary status was determined in the yew 1999 when the ceiling for regular employees was Rs 2500/-
In the case of regular employees the said ceiling was raised to Rs 3.500/- in the year 2006 and again to Rs 7,000/- in 2016 (retrospectively from 2014-15) whereas for casual workers and Casual workers with temporary status it remained at Rs 1.200/- all along slaw 1999-2000.
