BHEL 3rd PRC Implementation order issued for 10% fitment benefit from 01.01.2017

The Department of Public Enterprises has issued office memorandum for the pay revision of Board Level & Below board level executives in the central public sector enterprises on 3 Aug 2017. Thereafter PSUs can implement the 3rd PRC benefit to their executives & non-executives with the approval of the ministry or department. BHEL Board of Directors has recommended the 3rd PRC for their employees and send to the Department of Heavy industries for further approval. Finally, the Department of Heavy Industry has released the pay revision order on 27 Dec 2017.

BHEL Fitment benefit

The order dated 27Dec2017 is for partial fitment of 10%. Which may be reviewed after 3 years financial performance of BHEL. To calculate the revised salary of executives following formula will be used

Revised basic Pay = Basic Pay + IDA +(Basic Pay + IDA)X10%

Suppose someone has basic pay of 24900

IDA rates are 119.5%

Revised basic pay             =24900+29755.5 +(24900+29755.5)X10%


                                               = 60130 (After rounded of next Rs 10/-)

One can directly calculate the revised basic pay by multiplying factor of 2.4145 on to the present basic.

Revised basic pay             =24900X2.4145


Revised Pay Scale

As per Pay revision order, the following new set of pay scales (As mentioned in the DPE Order dated 03Aug2017) will be effective from 01.01.2017.

    • Please do contact with Ministry of Heavy Industry as it as the administrative department of Bridge and Roof Co India Ltd. So it may take decision on 3rd PRC for the Bridge and Roof Co India Ltd.

  1. Hi,

    I am working in W3 Grade with the current basic on 11500
    Need to know what will be my basic salary after 3rd CPC
    As I have joined in October 2017.

  2. Where can I get copies of HR Orders of pay revision implemented in any of the Public Sectors after pay revision notification from the government w.e.f. 01.01.2017 ?

    • Separate guideline is issued, somewhere in the month of November/December, in case of unionised workers.
      Pay Revision for unionised staff is generally the outcome of the negotiations between mgmt and union representatives. In case of Executives, they do not have scope to negotiate with mgmt. In case of Union they have got right to negotiate and get more as misc allowances and other facilities like subsidies canteen ( mandatory ) etc.
      Hence, normally mgmt. negotiate with union and signed the agreement with them.
      From the last 2 pay revisions (1st PRC and 2nd PRC), one can say that unionised workers are getting 2 things common as given to Executives i.e. 1) Fitment 2) Cafeteria (workers can not be given more %of perks&allowance than that of officers)
      Hence, you can expect your revised salary (if you are working in any PSEs) in line with the fitment and cafeteria given in your organisation to Board Level / Below Board Level executives I.E. 15% Fitment benefit and maximum 35% cafeteria.
      Other misc allowances and facilities will remain same or marginal increase is given, if those were kept outside cafeteria of 50% last year.
      Unionised workers’ pay revision normally not available on website of the organisation. But, as far as my knowledge some of Oil companies and gail, sail, sci, have already implemented revised pay revision for their executives. You can check with these PSU’s union representatives or with friends, if you have any, in these organisations. But, for sure you will get the same fitment benefit / perks&allowances (ranging from 30 to 34%) and other misc. allowances, if any, given in the last pay revision.

    • The pay revision implemented first for the executives and then for non-executive employees. So wait for Board level and below board level executives pay revision.

    • The guidelines for unionised supervisors is already issued in the month of November/December. Your union can now negotiate with your mgmt. is Executives (Board Level / Below Board Level) pay revision is taken place in your organisation.


    • The nonexecutive pay revision terms are decided by the individual company after the meeting with management and representative of recognized employees unions. You can contact the representative of recognized unions for latest updates.

  3. Please let me know if 3rd CPC is applicable to Cement Corporation of India LTD? My basic was 23600/- in December 2016. What will be my basic pay now?

    • Please check the profitability of CCI. If it is, employees will get the benefits of 3rd PRC. In that case, your revised basic pay will be 59600 w.e.f. 01.01.2017.

  4. I am working in cement corporation of India limited as on my basic is RS.12980/-31/12/2016 now hike salary implement 3 Rd prc what is my basic reached pl

    • Your basic pay will be 32000 with effective from 01.01.2017 after applying for 15% fitment benefit. Apart from this, you will get DA, HRA, Perks, and allowances applicable in the Cement Corporation of India Limited

      • Profitability is as follows:
        2014-15 : 40.38 crores
        2015-16 : 53.51 crores
        2016- 17 : 42.33 crores
        Please let me know if the above details suggest whether 3rd CPC can be applied to CCI Ltd? Awaiting your reply.

        • Hi, Please share this data with your account wing officers, and also get the data of expected expenditure due to 3rd PRC. And then apply the affordability formula. You will get the answer.

  5. The Fitment factor for NTPC seems to be 2.57 times the basic pay when it gets finalized then how come so less for BHEL though both are MAHARATNA COMPANIES.

    • To calculate financial burden you should have employees data along with their basic pay on 01.01.2017 for a company. Then you have to calculate the sum of extra amount payable to each & every employee.

    • You need to contact with FCI management for this as they need to send the proposal for same to the ministry. The ministry will take the final decision based on the guidelines issued by DPE.

  6. When april 1.2017 revised 117.1 to 119 % it means 1.9 increase therefore d a current is .8 april + 2.2 October+.7 January so 3.8 current d a 3.8

    • BHEL management will issue a separate order for supervisors shortly after negotiations with unions representatives. But 10% fitment is sure for them too.

    • This pay revision order is for Executives only. The Workers order will be issued by BHEL management separately. It may take 6 more months for the same.

    • Please tell me, what is your HRA % on the pre-revised scale.
      As order already been issued, so it may take one or two months to implement. The effective date of implementation will be 01.01.2017 so don’t worry about implementation as you will get arrears.

    • Like the executives in BHEL, same fitment benefit will be extended to workmen & unionized supervisors. The scale will be different. Hence if someone wants to calculate revised basic pay just multiply 2.4145 with basic pay as on 01.01.2016. You will get revised basic pay on 01.01.2017.
