Incentive or disincentive?

First-time marriage only: State Bank of India has decided to offer a generous gift to its bachelor employees...

Incentive or disincentive?
It's not clear from the report whether all unmarried employees will get the allowance and leave or whether there is any 'minimum service' or 'age' restrictions for this benefit. It is also not clear whether it is a one time benefit or the allowance will be monthly and leave an annual affair! Of course, if the benefit will not continue post-marriage, it can become a disincentive for getting married. Banks are unpredictable when it comes to conditionalities in small print. Having passed the test at entry level, SBI employees will protect their self-interest. But those handling RTI in SBI should keep answers ready for these questions.
