Dear Asif,
A) The statutory bonus is to be reckoned on the actual wages.
B) When the wages exceed Rs.7000-00 p.m, the bonus has to be calculated as if the wages were Rs.7000-00 p.m only OR the minimum wages fixed for the employment whichever is HIGHER.
Therefore, you have to calculate the minimum bonus of 8.33% on the actual minimum wages fixed when it is higher than the notional wages of Rs.7000-00; when it happens to be less than Rs.7000/=, the calculation shall be 8.33% of Rs.7000-00 p.m only.
This formula is equally applicable to bonus of any percentage more than 8.33% also.
For your last question, try to find the answer from the web site of the Karnataka Govt., Labor Department.
