Dear Mr. Vishal As said by you, it is still in proposal stage only and we can expect soon for its implementation. With warm regards S. Bhaskar
The document attached by Mr. Bhasker is only Notification/Bill and it has not been passed so far. I would like to refer Press Note dated 29th OCt. 2007, issued by the Hob'ble President regarding enhancement of eligibility limit for payment of bonus from the salary or wage of Rs. 3500/- per month to Rs. 10,000/- per month. This Press Note is available in some other threads of Cite Hr.
In my opinion when Bill is passed, similar type of Press Note may also be released.

Dear Jangir
i what context you want the maximum limit of bonus?
if for calculation then its Rs.3500/- per month and Minimum %age is 8.33% and Max is 20% as per the bonus act
for payout to employee maximum limit of salary is Rs.10000/-
Hopes this solves your quary.

Mr. R N Khola,
Pls let me know which basic salary i.e Rs.10000/- or 3500/- is taken for calculation of Bonus
if the wage limit is 3500/- then 10000/- wage limit is considered for eligibilty of Bonus.
For 10000/- wage limit
suppose the basic salary is 8000
Bonus 8.33% = 8000*8.33% = 666
Ex Gratia on 8000 /- = 8000*20% - 8000*8.33%
= 1600 - 666
= 934/-

Wage ceiling for bonus calculation is still 3500.
If basic salary is more than 3500, bonus should be calculated as mentioned below:
3500 x (no. of months employee has worked in that particular financial year) x 8.33% or above upto 20% = Actual bonus

Mr. Sinha,
Thanks for your help
Suppose the basic salary is 5400. Maximum percentage is 20
bonus = 3500*12*8.33%
= 3499
Can we also calculate the bonus on maximum 20% i.e
Bonus on 20% = 3500*12*20%
= 8400
Exgratia = (5400-3500) = 1900*12*20%
= 4560/-
Please let me know whether the above calculation is perfect.
Also let me know where i have to file bonus returns ( Form D) in Mumbai & what is Form C.
