Normally bonus will be calculated on total gross earned in the last financial year and it will be multiplied by the bonus percentage, it may be 8.33 % or beyond of that. So just in a view it can not be identified whether an employee is given given less bonus or more compared to other same graded employee. Cos that difference may be due to number of days he was worked in the last financial year. And one more thing is as per the statutory obligations one must be given minimum of 8.33 % of bonus. whatever the excess of this is called Ex-Gratia. When comes to Ex-Gratia the equal remuneration act doesn't apply here as it will be the extra sum given to higher performance.
This is my understanding, please let our seniors to share their opinions and clarifies this.
