On the other hand, for the year 2016-17, the benefit of adhoc bonus would be given to the employees having Annual Grade Pay of Rs. 4,800 or less. It would be calculated on the basis of paying Rs. 7,000 for 31 days of the month. Thus, any employee would get Rs. 6,774 as ad hoc bonus to the maximum.
Presently, the state government employees are given DA at the rate of 136% of the basic salary and after the hike 3% it will become 139%. The increase in DA would be effective from July 1, 2017 and it would be paid in cash from October 2017.
