I have a query regarding bonus payment.Bonus is calculated for a financial year.If a person works for only 5 to 10 days in one month. Is he/she is eligible for bonus?
Is there any constraint that a person should work x days then only he will get the bonus..

Dear Kiran Bhatnagar,
Pls note the statutory Wage Ceiling for calculation the Bonus has been increased to Rs. 21K. The minimum bonus is Rs. 7K or the minimum wage for the scheduled employment, as fixed by the appropriate Government, whichever is higher. The revised Bonus rules are applicable wef Apr. 14. PFA the notification for your ready reference.
In relation to Bonus payment in r/o loss, I would like to add if it is a startup (new) establishment and making loss in the initial three years than it is not mandatory for such establishment for making Bonus payment as per the provisions of the Act.
Fellow members can correct me.
