**Grant of of ad-hoc bonus for RPF/RPSF Personnel for the financial year 2015-16**

Grant of ad-hoc bonus for 30 days to Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ RPF/RPSF Personnel for the financial year 2015-16. The calculation ceiling has been enhanced to Rs.7000 with effect from 1.4.2016.

The benefit will be admissible subject to the following and conditions:- Only those Group C & D RPF/RPSF personnel who were in service on 31.3.2011 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2015-2016 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).

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 there after be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of Rs.7000/- (where actual average emoluments exceed 7000), ad-hoc bonus for thirty days would work out to 7000×30/30.4 = Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

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

In the matter where the aforesaid provisions are silent, clarificatory orders issued vide this Ministry’s letter No.E(P&A)II-88/Bonus-3 dated 29.12.1988, as amended from time totime, would hold good.
