“Two important decisions were taken today in the union cabinet meeting. Firstly, the union cabinet approved productivity linked bonus and non-productivity linked bonus for 2019-2020. More than 30 lakh non-gazetted employees of the central government will be benefited by the bonus announcement and total financial implication will be Rs 3,737 crores,” Union Minister Prakash Javadekar informed reporters after the cabinet meeting.
