Dear Senthil,

1.There is no minimum salary for Bonus. But minimum payment for 1 year is Rs. 100

2. For Bonus coverage, maximum monthly salary is Rs. 10,000.

3. Mainly Basic+Da is taking as salary.

4. Allocable surplus has to be distributed among the eligible employees. The lower ceiling is 8.33% and upper ceiling is 20%. This is statutory and called Bonus payment. If the employer give additional payment other than statutory or payment to employees above the coverage limit, it may be called as ex-gratia. Please note that Bonus is mandatory and ex-gratia is optional.

5. Statutory percentage is from 8.33% to 20%, detailed in answer number 4

6. Allocable surplus is 60% of available surplus, for Banking institutions. For companies it will be 67%. 8.33% is the percentage form of 1/12 & is equal to one month salary (for one year). Accordingly 20% is 2.4 month salary.

If the allocable surplus is not sufficient to pay 8.33%, balance amount is to be adjusted from the next four years, which is called as Set Off. And if the allocable surplus is more than sufficient to pay 20%, balance amount is to be carried forward for the next four years, which is called as Set On.

The statutory limit for computation of bonus maximum salary is to be considered as Rs. 3500/- i.e. ceiling for calculation of bonus. For example any body drawing salary more than Rs. 3500/- his salary for calculation of bonus will be considered as Rs. 3500.

Dear Senthil,

1. There is no minimum salary limit for bonus eligibility.

2.The maximum salary limit is Rs.10000/-

3. Basic + DA is considered for computing Bonus. If Basic + DA exceeds Rs.10000/- then he is not eligible for bonus. However there is a wage ceiling of Rs.3500/- for payment of bonus. If an employee draws Rs.3500/- or more upto Rs.10000/- then his wage should be deemed as Rs.3500/- only. In other words if he draws Rs.4000/- his wage will be Rs.3500/- only for computation of bonus. If he draws less than Rs.3500/- say Rs.3400/- then the wage will be Rs.3400/- for computation of bonus.

4. The minimum % of bonus is 8.33% of annual Basic + DA and the maximum % is 20%.

5. As per bonus act the maximum bonus that a person can earn is Rs.8400/- per annum i.e Rs.3500/- X 12 = Rs.42000/- @ 20% = Rs.8400/-.

6. Ex-gratia is something that the management is willing to give voluntarily even if the employee is not eligible to receive bonus. The employer may not impose the wage ceiling of Rs.3500/- and may be willing to pay on the actual earnings of the employee even if it exceeds Rs.3500/-. He may also be willing to pay bonus if he exceeds Rs.10000/-.

Trust the matter is clarified.
