Dear Rakesh,

I would like you to go through the provisions of section 16 of the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 in order to get a clear picture about the bonus liability of a newly started establishment.

In the case of a new establishment undergoing the phase of gestation, no bonus liability towards the employees employed during such period.
During the first 5 years the liability would arise only when production is commenced and profits are earned.

From India, Salem
