The Central Government has approved the payment of Productivity Linked Reward (PLR) @ 17.34% of the annual salary/wage to the Port workers/employees/officers for the year 2009-10. This will benefit about 61,000 port workers and officers.
Salary/wage of each worker/employee for this purpose will consist of Basic Pay, D.A. and incentive payments subject to a maximum of Rs.3500/- per month. In respect of workers/employees/officers, whose wage/salary exceed Rs.3500/- per month, the calculation of payment will be made as if their salary/wage were only Rs.3500/- per month.
All Expenditure on account of this payment will be borne by the Major Port Trusts from their own resources without any budgetary support from the Government of India.
