Introduction of Performance Linked Incentive (PLI)
In today’s Banking scenario, there is stiff competition amongst different category of banks i.e., Public sector, Private sector, Foreign banks. In order to inculcate a sense of competition and also to reward the performance, the concept of Performance Linked Pay is felt to be introduced. After prolonged discussions and deliberations on this matter, it has been agreed to introduce Performance Linked Incentive (PLI) in Public Sector Banks, which will be based on Operating/ Net Profit of the individual bank (optional for private & foreign banks). The PIA is payable to all employees annually over and above the normal salary payable. The PLI matrix decides the amount payable to the employees (in number of days of pay-Basic+DA) depending on the annual performance of the bank. All the employees will get the number of days of pay as incentive depending on where in the matrix the bank’s performance fits in, broadly as per pay Matrix under :

|2||5% to 10%||5 days|
|3||>10% to 15%||10 days*|
