Reliance Industries rolls back salary cuts, offers performance bonus: Report

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries is rolling back salary cuts for the employees of its hydrocarbons division. It will also give out performance bonus that had been deferred after business was hit by coronavirus lockdown.

The firm is also offering an advance 30 per cent of the variable pay from the next year’s salary to its lakh-plus employees. This is being done as a goodwill gesture for working during the pandemic, two persons familiar with the matter said. Reliance in April had cut the salary of employees of its hydrocarbons division by 10 per cent to 50 per cent with the firm’s chairman and richest Indian Mukesh Ambani agreeing to forgo all his remuneration.

Also, the oil-to-technology conglomerate had deferred annual cash bonus and performance-linked incentives that are normally paid in the first quarter. Sources said Reliance may have done some intra-division cash transfer to roll back the salary cuts in the hydrocarbons divisions.

While Ambani forgo his entire 15 crore compensation, Reliance board of directors including executive directors, executive committee members, and senior leaders saw 30 per cent to 50 per cent of their compensation. Employees with compensation of less than 15 lakh did not have any reduction in compensation but those earning higher than that saw a 10 per cent reduction in fixed pay. While the salary cuts of employees have been restored, it isn’t clear if Ambani’s remuneration has also been restored.
