The government has approved the implementation of performance related pay for the officers of Coal India Ltd, said an official statement.
"We will give performance related pay to managerial and supervisory level official of Coal India," Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said after the Cabinet meeting.
There are nearly 19,000 officers at CIL.
The issue has been pending for long despite a high-level panel recommending its implementation.
Executives had last year called off a three-day strike after the first day as they received assurances from CIL management in this regard.
CMOAI had earlier said that PRP is a part of pay implemented since January 1, 2007 and has been paid to all executives of other entitled PSUs, barring Coal India (CIL).
Earlier, the Coal Ministry had sought comments from various ministries, including Finance, on the draft Cabinet note for implementation of PRP of CIL employees.
