Dear SKM,
Bonus is calculated on the basic salary. The minimum % to be given as bonus would be 8.33% and Maximum % would be 20%. Anything given above 20% is caled as exgratia payment.
Your second query is limit of bonus ?
The limit for calculating bonus is Rs.10000/- on basic . Any one drawing basic salary which is more than Rs. 10000/- is ineligible for bonus as per act. There are two types of bonus, one is statutory bonus and other is customary bonus. You have to show only statutory bonus paid in the register maintained in Form C and D as per bonus act.
The company is not liable to pay bonus if any one crosses the limit.

Dear HR com,
I have situational query?
Mr. X joined in ABC Co. on on annual CTC of Rs 292500/- (Rs 22500/- per month and Rs 22500/- as yearly bonus). He resigns before completion of 1 year. Is he eligible for the bonus?

If the basic+DA per month is less than Rs. 10000/- then only statutory bonus is payable. Please confirm on this aspect so that I can give you further advice. As far as working duration is concerned, the statutory bonus is payable to employee if he has worked for minimum 30 days in a financial year of which bonus is to be paid. Please note that the bonus is always paid based on the number of days of service the employee has actually rendered. It means if an employee has worked for 4 months in a financial year and he resigned in 5th month, he is entitled for the statutory bonus as he has worked for 30 days but he will get the bonus only for 4 months and not for entire period.

Hi Manish...
The employee is in executive (assistant Mgr) category and the the bonus indicated in his appointment letter was part of CTC (not a statutory bonus). However, no performance/profit based condition is bear with his appointment letter. In this case if the company is not paying the bonus at the time of Full & Final settlement, can he take go with judicial way ?
please advise.

I am confused with the word Salary or Wages in the Bonus Act is inclusive of Basic + D.A. or Basic + other allowances. Please convey whatever according to act is correct.
Because Bonus limit is Salary or wages upto 10000 but is it Bsic + D.A or the gross salary.
Also our company does not pay D.A
Our salary structure is Gross = Basic + HRA + Medical All + Transportation All + Edu All.
Please Convey if all these come under the definition of Salary or Wages in Bonus Act.
