BONUS Question raised in Rajya Sabha

Rajya Sabha Q&A : No proposal to waive the ceiling for bonus


ANSWERED ON-08.05.2013
Amendment in Bonus Act

(a)whether it is a fact that at present skilled workers who are really contributing to production and productivity are not getting bonus; and

(b)whether Government is planning to amend the Bonus Act and waive the ceiling in salary and maximum bonus so as to make everybody in a production unit eligible to get the bonus?


(a): As per the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965, any employee is entitled to get bonus provided he / she is considered as an eligible employee. As per the Act, an “employee” means any person (other than an apprentice) employed on a salary or wage not exceeding ten thousand rupees per mensem in any industry to do any skilled or unskilled manual, supervisory, managerial, administrative, technical or clerical work for hire or reward, whether the terms of employment be express or implied.” Government has no specific information of skilled workers being denied bonus.

(b): The calculation ceiling and eligibility limit has been revised from Rs. 2500/- to Rs. 3500/- per month and Rs. 3500/- to Rs. 10,000/- p.m. respectively vide the Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Act, 2007 notified on 13/12/2007 and made effective from 1st April, 2006. Keeping in view the large financial implications for both for the Public and Private Sectors further amendment to the Payment of Bonus Act for waiving both the ceilings is not considered feasible at this stage.

The delegation requested hon’able commissioner in no uncertain terms that AINVSA of Sh. T.P Mani was genuine and real. He is our father figure and founder father. Some other people with vested interests, whose sole aim is to loot hard earned money of staff, are misguiding, misleading them and above all destabilizing the system due to their political orientations.

H.C DELHI : Pensioners retired before 2006 to get pension as per Sixth Pay Commission

The Delhi High Court has held that all government employees who retired even before 2006 will get revised pension according to the Sixth Central Pay Commission.

Rejecting the government's plea that the pre-2006 employees would get the increased pension only from 2012, the court directed the authorities to give retired employees the increased pension from 2006 itself.

The sixth pay commission, which had raised the salaries of government employees by a significant amount, was implemented in 2006.
