Hi ,
I am ganesh. I am a silent member of cite hr and i am having an query in related to payment of Bonus. I am working in a Private limited company and there they are paying statutory bonus to staff. They have paid bonus to the staff whose salary (basic + HRA) is less than Rs.10000.But As per knowledge, while calculating bonus, we have to take the basic salary and Not BASIC + HRA. They are quotating Bonus act and claiming tht nothing was mentioned in the act that HRA should not be taken.
Can any body help me in this and is there any case laws relating to this.

The Hon'ble President of India has promulgated the Payment of Bonus(Amendment) Ordinance, 2007 containig the following amendments:
1. Amendment to clause(13) of section 2 of the Pyament of Bonus Act, 1965 to raise the eligibility limit for Payment of Honus form the salary(Pay+DA) or wage of Rs.3500/- per month to 10,000/- per month.
2. Amendment to section 12 of Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 to raise the celing limit for Pyament of Bonus from Rs.2,500/- to 3,500/-
3. the ordinance shall be deemed to have com into force on 1st April 2006
4. As per the Act minumum Bonus 8.33% of wages per month and maximum ceiling is 20%.
Hence, minimum amount is eligible for Rs. 3500/- but, it was earlier Rs.2500/-

Is there any specifcation as to what should be yr. for bonus act(as our co has books prepared for 1st Jan to 31st Dec). So can we pay bonus by Aug of next yr. as I saw 8 months from day of closre of books ?
Thanks CiteHR !! I was looking for some guidelines on Bonus Act as i didnt had the bare Act. I found the resorces in Citehr. I know i can always rely on citehr for quick references. Once again thanks to all.
