2) In pursuance of the above decision, it is hereby ordered that the employees who have been paid 75% of the Remote Hydro/Cavern Allowance cum Performance Incentive under reference 3rd cited be paid 25% of the remaining Performance Linked Incentive. The following guidelines/instructions shall be adhered to in working out the performance of each station for releasing the balance 25% of the Performance Linked Incentive for 2014-15.
THE PLANT AVAILABILITY FACTOR:-
i. This factor is based on availability of the machine i.e., running or standby condition. As outage hours increase, this factor reduces. This factor will reflect the performance of the station.
ii. Annual overhaul is a statutory requirement. This period may be excluded for calculating the Plant Availability Factor for incentive purpose. Since R&M is undertaken for life extension and performance improvement, the machine under shutdown for R&M need not be considered for arriving Plant Availability Factor of the respective station. After R&M, the Machine shall be taken as new one.
iii. Balance 25% incentive shall be considered for the stations that maintain minimum of 80% availability factor. Proportionate incentive (Reduction) shall be given for the stations that have less than 80% Plant Availability Factor. Average availability factor of all units (whether running or ready standby) in a station shall be considered as station availability factor, based on which incentive is to be worked out.
iv. The 25% incentive shall be given in full for the employees who have served more than 200 days at a particular Hydro Station during the financial year 2014-15. Proportionate working days shall be calculated for those who join or leave in the middle of the year due to promotion or transfer and they shall be paid proportionately for their duration of service.
v. For those officers and staff working in Superintending Engineer/ Generation Circle Offices, Stores etc., common to Generation Circle, the Average Availability Factor of all the Stations shall be calculated proportionately for considering the payment of this incentive. The Sample working sheet already prescribed in Board’s Memo. No.59508/ A3/ A32/2003-1, Dated: 4-9-2003 shall be followed for the payment of incentive for 2014-15.
