Profit making units Payment of Bonus is limited to Maximum of 20%

Dear Mr. Amit,
If wages is 10000 and he has leave without pay for 2 days, the earned wages for the month will be 10000/26*24 = 9,231
Now for bonus calculation it is as follows:
(a) Suppose minimum wages is Rs.6,855 then bonus will be on Rs.7,000. So it will be 7000*Bonus percentage
(b) Suppose minimum wages is Rs.8,025 then bonus will be on Rs.8,025. So it will be 8025*Bonus percentage
In case he has leave without pay of 9 days, the earned wages for the month will 10000/26*17 = 6,539. In this case bonus calculation will be as follows:
(c) Suppose minimum wages is Rs.6,855 then bonus will be on Rs.7,000 or earned wages, whichever is lower. So it will be 6,539*Bonus percentage
(d) Suppose minimum wages is Rs.8,025 then bonus will be on Rs.8,025 or earned wages, whichever is lower. So it will be 6,539*Bonus percentage
Formula in Excel will be something like this: MIN(EarnedWages, MAX(7000,MinimumWages))
