CompliCheck - Compliance ToolSince the salary came down again in March the February salary seems to have a variable component hence it should not affect the bonus eligibility. So yes, bonus should be paid.
Minimum statutory bonus is 8.33% of 7000 or state minimum wages whichever is higher. You can read my blog: Interpreting Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Act, 2015 | CompliFacts for more details.
Hope this clarifies you doubts.
