Sir there are two points :-
1) Firstly in State V Sardar Dalip Singh it was held that section 10 is mandatory, so even in losses the minimum bonus is to be paid.
2) Minimum bonus is paid irrespective if the entity has allocated surplus or not.
Dear Mr Amit,
Payment of bonus for 2015-16 is put on STAY by Courts thru out India, and the matter is yet tobe decided by Court.
In Hon'ble Mumbai High Court the case is fixed for 12.2.2017.
Pls wait and observe for court's ruling.
You have to pay minimum bonus of 8.33% u/s 10 of the Act,even if you have no profit. This provision is not stayed by any Court.
Dear Tks ji, Is it that Bonus for 2015-16 is put on STAY by court through out India? I request you to kindly upload the Stay Order after due reading on this platform Sir. I will be highly obliged.
Dear all our company has made the profit of 26.96% pls let me know in this scenario can we pay only 8.33% bonus or will i have pay surplus also redgs Aman
Dear Labour Law Index,
As stated by you in the Block , request to share the Soft Copy of the Citation State V Sardar Dalip Singh and or Year of the Citation and Court name who have ruled, so it can be download from Court web site.
Dear members,
Bonus for 15-16 is stayed All over India by Hon'ble Mumbai High Court against WPL No.1548/2016.
But, some one was suggesting that u/s 10 is compulsory. Yes, it is compulsory, provided the worker fit within the Bonus eligibility criteria with regard to wage limit.
Here respected members should read in-between lines of the Hon'ble Court stay order, which says the Govt. notification of raising the wage limit from 10,000 to 15,000 (now 21,000) AND its retrospective applicable period of 14-15 & 15-16 is stayed. In which case, if any one need to pay Bonus for these 2 years, may kindly verify the wage of worker for these years tobecome eligible for Bonus..
Now, once the Stay is vacated by the Hon'ble Court, then only the limit of wage and above years will come into existing.
The above info is for HR Execs. to stay updated.
It is the retrospective applicability from 2014-15 ,is stayed not 2015-16.The amendments applicability from 1.4.2015 is still there.
Not the percentage of your profit but your quantum of profit is relevant to payment of bonus act.
Only eligibility clause of Bonus for 2014/15 is stayed because it was from retrospective effect. Don't say that there is stay on entire payment and that too for 2015/16.
