Payment of statutory bonus is to be paid within 8 months after the closure of accounting year. In case you were eligible for it in the FY 2015-16, and the company did not pay it then; you may be eligible to receive it as arrears now .
Please help us understand the following to advise better:
1. Why was the bonus not paid at the end of FY 2015-16?
2. Why did you not ask for it before?
3. What was your basic (+da) salary per month in fy 2015-16?
4. What is the nature of business of your employer and how old are they?
5. In case they are more than 5 years old, are they making any profits?
