I will be very thankful to all of you to describe this with an appropriate example
*(What is the limit for entitlement towards Bonus)


From India, New Delhi
Dear Pulsar,
As per the latest amendment in the Bonus Act, the eligibility for the Bonus is as under :
It is applicable to those who are drawing the wages less than Rs. 10000.00 per month.
Minimum Limit for the Bonus is 8.33% and maximum is 20%.
Minmum Bonus @ 8.33% for the employee drawing wages more than Rs. 3500.00 and less than Rs. 10000.00 will be Rs. 3500.00 as the Act.
For the Employees drawing wages less than 3500.00 per month will be paid on actuals.
hope this will clear your query.

Dear Pulsar 180,
Whatever Mr. Rajeev has Conveyed is The Right Answer to ur querry.
Let me Explain it a little More.
If a person Is Drawing Basic 4500
Bonus @ 8.33 % would be Rs. 4500 Out of Which ur Liable to Pay Him 3500/- as bonus and rest can be Paid as Exgratia.
Bonus @ 20% Rs. 10800 Out of Which Ur Liable to Pay 8400 as Bonus and rest in Exgratia.
Same would be case with 9000 & 10000.
In case of a person Drawing Basic Rs. 12000/- He is Out Of Preview of the elegibility. All the Amount u Wish to pay whether it is 8.33% or 20 % will be paid as exgratia.
Hope This Answers ur Querry.

Dear Seniors,
Please correct me if I am wrong.
if a employee is getting [only] Basic - Rs. 7,667/- PM so annually will be Rs. 92,004/-
Bonus Calculation is @ 8.33%
So Calculation will be Per Month will be:
Mini Wages - 3500 @ 8.33% = 291.55/-
Exgratia - 4167 @ 8.33% = 347.11/-

Employer is paying Bonus 8.33% of Basic , and remaining ex gratia is [20 % of total GRoss- 8.33 basic]
means Bonus + Ex gratia payment = 20% total gross salary.
If Employee is having 10000 is Basic & 20,000 is Gross salary.
He will get Bonus monthly 8.33% of basic = 833 is bonus.
total of Ex gratia and Bonus would be 20% of gross salary.
He will get Ex gratia= 20% of gross-8.33% Basic.
i.e. [20%*20000]- [8.33% *10000].
4000-833=3167 is Exgratia.
Employer is paying 20% total gross salary as a BONUS & Ex-gratia.
