Around Rs 700 crore is the festive season bonus that the Railways has approved for its employees which works out to be around 78 days of pay.

It is learnt that this year the Railway Board had no plans of paying the bonus citing financial crunch but the unions flexed their muscles and Railway Minister Sadananda Gowda approved of it. The Board was left with no choice but to fall in line.
