Understand that there is already a stay granted by High Court of Kerala in a petition in which two employers have challenged retrospective effect.
From India, Mumbai
Dear All,
The order of the Kerala High Court will not be applicable on PAN India level. Some more writ petitions are being filed in other High Courts also. However, the subject matter is under active consideration by the Central Govt. and as such the implementation of the amended provisions be kept in abeyance.

In the light of the Stay granted b the Kerala High Court, Can this decision be deemed as applicable to the entire of India? The Subject of Bonus being on the Concurrent List?
From India, Pune
Since the stay has been granted by Kerala High Court it is applicable only within Kerala. Of course employers in other states can file similar applications in their respective states and those High Courts may or may not grant the stay.
But I do not know why a government can not amend a law retrospectively. Such retrospective amendments galore esp in tax laws or labour laws.
