BMC announces Diwali bonus, discriminates between Civic and BEST employees

Ahead of Diwali, the Brihannmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) employees have finally got some good news. “Up to Rs 14,500 bonus will be given to the Civic employees,” said the Mayor after holding a meeting with the Municipal Commissioner. However there was no mention of bonus to BEST employees which means that this Diwali, BEST employees get no good news from BMC.

Earlier, the Commissioner had completely refused to give any bonus while the Labor Union had demanded Rs 40,000 as bonus which was rejected, which irked the union. Later,  the Commissioner agreed to give Rs 500 less than the previous year as bonus which was also not acceptable to the employee unions. Finally a consensus was reached after two meetings of the Mayor with the Municipal Commissioner and a bonus of Rs 14,500 for the employees was announced.  This bonus would cost a total of Rs 160.30 crore to the BMC treasury. The  employees from different sections would get a bonus of the following amount: (I) Rs 14,500 to the BMC employees, (II) Rs 4,200 to the BMC approved health workers, (III) Rs 7,250 to the BMC approved primary class teachers of private schools, (IV) Rs 4,500 to the education sevaks, and (V) Rs 2,250 to the private school education sevaks.
