By 15 September 2022, the employees of Tata Steel Jamshedpur will receive 20 per cent annual bonus in their accounts. A Memorandum of Settlement has been signed by the management and the workers’ union to this effect. This formula for bonus calculation will continue to be applicable till 2024.
The 20 per cent yearly bonus this year is higher than the 16 per cent that was given the previous financial year. The bonus has increased by about Rs 47 crore. It is also for the first time that an amount exceeding Rs 300 crore (that is, Rs 317.51 crore) is being disbursed as bonus.
In addition, a goodwill bonus of Rs 20,000 each will be given to all employees, as requested by the union, given the hard work put in by them, even during the pandemic and the remarkable performance of the Company in FY 2021-22.
