Statutory bonus is related only to the minimum number of days (30 days) actually worked by any person falling within the definition of the term "employee" under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 in an Accounting Year and it is not related to the nature of his employment such as permanent, probationer, temporary etc.

Whether the said employee was eligible to receive the statutory bonus under payment of Bonus act? If he draws less than Rs.21000/month and has worked for minimum 30 days in the financial year he is eligible for the bonus declared for the financial year 1819, payable between the period April 2019 to Nov. 2019.
The minimum statutory bonus would be Rs. 7000 or min wages whichever is higher. Lets us say min wages in your region is Rs.8500, in this case min. bonus shall be Rs. 8500/-. The Bonus calculation will be on actual attendance (pro rata) basis. Here all authorized leaves, offs and holidays are to be considered as presence only unauthorized absence against which wages has been deducted will be considered as absence.
Lets us the for the period 1st June to 31st Dec the employee has full attendance. So his attendance is 214 days. Now the per day rate for Rs 8500 would be Rs. 279.60. Your company has declared min. bonus i.e. 8.33%.
Hope this helps
