Hi to all
Appreciate all of you for your response towards this question.
I agree that wage ceiling limits has been enhanced to Rs.10,000/- p.m.
However, my question is from a different perspective.
I repeat the question-
An employee who has joined the company four month back only (i.e. in the month of July,2007) is he entiled to bonus or not ?
Early response awaited.

Hi Armaan !
The bonus which is paid during Diwali 2007 (actually it is six months from finalizing the balance sheet for fin year 2006-07) is for earnings of an employee in the year 2006-07 i.e. upto 31.03.2007.
If some one has joined in July 07 or 1.04.2007 onwards, he / she will not be eligible for payment of bonus in the year 2007 (say diwali)
Bonus is payable after completion of financial year. and after balance sheet is finalized
so in your case, the bonus will be payable in Oct 2008
Hope this brings clarity to you.
Do let me have feedback.

Hi Armaan,
What Hiten Parekh mentioned in his reply is correct.
I think the bonus is paid before completing the 8 months,once balance sheet is finalised.
E.g: Balance sheet finalised in March 2006-07 , then bonus is paid in or before 30 th November 2007. In your mentioned case, the individual will be paid bonus nextyear.

Stick to the basics Men, First Let him Complete his Probation Period, Then he is Eligible.... Immediately After joining know one is eligible for bonus.
If your company is paying it on monthly bases. Even though he/she need to complete probation period.... ok

Hi All, I have joined a company on 15th April 2012, the bonus will be issued in this month (January 2013). could any one tell me am I eligible for bonus? Regards Vaishnavi

Dear Vaishnavi,
By now am sure after reading the posts above you are aware about the eligibility. Any employee with Basic less then equal to Rs. 10000/- & served 30 days in the accounting year is eligible for Bonus on Rs. 3500/-
Can you pl mention what is your Basic & the Bonus being distributed in January is for which accounting year. You can rather speak to your HR department directly for the same.

Respected all
I would like to give my clearance on this topic
The Bonus is eligible on any employee whose Basic + DA is Less Then 10000/-(Ten Thousand). He Will be entitled to get fix 3500/- p.m as he has completed 30 days .

In accordance with the provision of the Bonus Act, an employee who has worked for 30 working days in an accounting year in an establishment/company will be eligible for Bonus. There is an another provision that the monthly basic salary of an employee should be upto Rs. 10000/- per month. Obviously the person who has joined in July 2007 will be eligible for getting bonus.

Dear Armaan,
If the employee has completed only 4 months in organisation (i.e. from month of July) then he/she will not be eligible to receive bonus until or unless has completed such financial year (till 31st of March). Either has completed the probation period.
The policy of organisation to organisation it might be possible to vary.
