THE PAYMENT OF BONUS (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2012

A

BILL

further to amend the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965.

BE it enacted by Parliament in the Sixty-third Year of the Republic of India as follows:—

1. (1) This Act may be called the Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Act, 2012.

(2) It shall come into force on such date as the Central Government may, by notification

in the Official Gazette, appoint.

2. In Section 2 of the Payment of the Bonus Act, 1965 (hereinafter referred to as the

principal Act) in Clause (13), the words "not exceeding ten thousand rupees per mensem"

shall be omitted.

3. Section 12 of the principal Act shall be Omitted.

Short title and

commencement.

Bill No. XXX of 2012

Omission of

Section 12.

AS INTRODUCED IN THE RAJYA SABHA ON THE 9TH AUGUST, 2012 Amendment

of Section 2. 21 of 1965. 5

STATEMENT OF OBJECTS AND REASONS

The Bill proposes to amend definition of "employees" as given in sub-section (13) of Section 2 of the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 which entitles only those employees for

getting bonus by his employer who are employed on a salary or wage not exceeding ten

thousand rupees per mensem.

Moreso, section 12 prescribes the limit of three thousand five hundred rupees per

mensem for calculation of bonus with respect to the employees.

In today's world of money inflation, high prices and salaries, imposing ceiling on the

wages for denying bonus to the employees is totally unjust. At least all the workers should

be entitled to get the bonus irrespective of their salary or wages under the Payment of

Bonus Act.

The Bill proposing amendment to section 2 and section 12 of the Act seeks to achieve

the aforesaid objectives.

Hence this Bill.

Dear Giridhar
Thanks for your prompt response
I had checked the same...and the amendment mentioned by you was happened 2 years before.
I had posted the amendment details notified just one month before(ie 9th August 2012) and it is a clear government notification.So I just want to know whether the same is a just a proposal or the bill had passed into force currently

Dear Anirudh,
We still donot have any official communication regarding the implementation of the Bill... It is still a proposal...not enforced yet..
It is a bill and not an act..
A bill when approved and passed becomes an act.. Your attachment clearly mentions the bill no. Refer once again..
So, you need not change anything right now,...it is yet to be passed in the Rajya Sabha.. It takes time..

I have big confusion on Bonus Act as it is indicating the minimum bonus ought to pay @ 8.33% on employee earnings. Whereas in some other clause the minimum bonus can payable Rs. 3,500/- who are earning salary/wage more than Rs. 3,500/- per mensem. Can anybody clarify. I am assuming in the case of setoff the minimum bonus is payable either 8.33% or 3,500/-. In set on case the minimum bonus ought to be payable 8.33%...!
