No. The Bonus salary Ceiling limit is still Rs.3500/- per month. If we calculate the Bonus as per the ceiling salary then in case of 8.33% (Minimum Bonus to be paid) then Rs.3499/- and for 20% (Maximum Bonus can be paid) then Rs.8400/- only.

There has been no change in the ceiling for payment of Statutory Bonus. It continues to be Rs 3,500/-.
This is strange. When salary levels have gone up multi fold, the Bonus act still talks of only Rs.3500/- as ceiling limit. This is just unacceptable from everybody's view. Why trade unions are keeping silent on this is not understood
Dear friends, Ceiling limit on salary for the eligibility for bonus is not Rs. 3500, but Rs. 10,000. But the for bonus calculation salary upto Rs. 3500 willo be taken into account. Abbas.P.S
Dear Supreme_1974 & Dbalaji3,
Statutory Bonus is mainly concerned for workmen category, who comes under Contract Labour Act / minimum wages Act. You please dont compare your salary for Bonus. Salary of the minimum wages workmen is comparatively low and Rs. 3,500/- is good amount for them. Earlier, Bonus applicable to the employees whose basic was Rs. 3,500/-, however, it has been enhanced to Rs. 10,000/- in the year 2007 for covering more employees (enenthough the ceiling limit is 3,500/-)
Dear Supreme
Computation of bonus should be worked out as per schedule I to IV of the Act. Every person drawing salary between Rs3500/- and Rs10,000/- per month. The bonus payable to him is to be calculated as if his salar were Rs3500/- p.m.
Till date there is not any enanchement to Rs 5000/-pm.
Thanks & Regards

Can any body clarify why deduction for ESIC is Gross Amt 15000/-. We are having so many labour working under contractor getting more than 15000/- per month. There should not be any limit for working under contractor and ESIC means medical benifit for labour. Can any body elaborate more on this.

Dear Antoajay,
An employee is eligible to get bonus only when he has worked for 30 working days in that year & drawing wages upto Rs.10000/- per month or less.Wages means Basic +DA.
In your case,you are drawing Rs. 9500(Basic+DA) wage per month.You are eligible for Bonus.
I have also enclosed excel sheet to determine eligibility for bonus based on monthwise salary.

The site has amply made it clear that Bonus is Statutory and is a must to keep the employees free from other social pressures. However there is a better method. Looking after the social needs of the family works better than bonus in terms of employees retention. A proved method even before 5 decades by none other than Shri. Gurumoorthy of Ms SIMSON GROUP, Tamilnadu. He was then the first to get Max Bonus in entire India to the entire group. All these are not by fighting but by proven and committed output from the employees. And we can fill pages over suceesses of the group before the political interference by a state party. Even today many industries suffer under political rival unions.

Best method could be to take care of the educational and few important social oblications like family health and happiness ( Deepali, New Year and alike, Leave Travel Cocession etc.,) which would give a major bondage and would help in employees retention with committment. Certainly a compremising formula could be worked out with employees partivcipative body ( non political Union).

My suggestion to some small indusries in this regard had worked well for them as well as the employees.

Dear all , please guide me if any employee with (basic+da) of rs.3700 then bonus to be calculated on rs.3500 or on rs.3700? Ajay
Dear Ajay, As already clarified by the members bonus is to be calculated considering the salary as Rs. 3500/- per month. Regards, R N KHOLA
bonus will be calculated on the basis of basic + D.A or total gross salary
Dear All pls let me know, if any employee basic salary Rs.90000 p.m , so he eligible or not for bonus ?
dear Mehulchavda121@
