Pl find attached Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Act 2015 as notified in Official Gazette. Following amendments have been made in the Act:
1. Eligibility limit for payment of bonus increased from Rs.10,000 to Rs.21,000
2. Calculation ceiling increased from Rs.3,500 p.m. to Rs.7,000 p.m.
The amendments have been made effective retrospectively from 1st April 2014. Hence we will have to work out differential liability for 2014-15 and make payment accordingly.
