Please ,can anybody kindly apprise whether bonus in included in the definition of wages under the payment of wages act’1936 & what is the wage ceiling at present. Thanks Richa
From India, Chandigarh
Bonus is not part of wages under any Act. Under the Payment of Bonus Act an employee whose salary exceeds Rs 10000 is not entitled to get bonus. At the same time, bonus of all employees who get salary above Rs 3500 will be calculated as if their salaries were Rs 3500. That means, though the wages ceiling for bonus is Rs 10000, the same will be calculated on a maximum salary of Rs 3500 only. Salary for this purpose will include Basic salary and Dearness Allowance only.
Please note that an amendment is likely to take place in Payment of Bonus Act very soon.

Dear Mr.Madhu.T.K, Can we pay bonus on monthly bases, if we pay then which date we can show in form D & C Regard’s Himanshu
From India, Gurgaon
You can pay bonus in installments. But the entire amount of bonus should be paid within eight months of closing of the financial year. Therefore payment of bonus in monthly installments is not encouraged. Similarly, if you pay it monthly the amount will be treated as part of wages for deciding contribution towards ESI. Remember that bonus (statutory bonus) is a deferred wage.
To Avanti,
Please confirm if the minimum days of work so as to be eligible to get bonus is 30 ( as I understand) or 20 days as you posted.
