The calculation for Diwali Bonus

If the gross earning of your employees is below Rs. 21,000 employers are liable to pay bonuses. Calculation of bonus will be as follows:

• If Salary is equal to or less than Rs. 7000/- then the bonus is calculated on the actual amount by using the formula: Bonus = Salary x 8.33/100
• If Salary is more than Rs. 7,000/- then the bonus is calculated on Rs. 7,000/- by using the formula: Bonus = 7,000 x 8.33/100

Note: Salary means Basic Salary + Dearness Allowance

Example 1: If Bella’s Salary is Rs. 6000/- than the bonus payable to Bella shall be = 6000 x 8.33/100 = 500 per month (Rs. 6000/- per year).

Example 2: If Brandon’s Salary is Rs. 7000/- than bonus payable to Brandon =583 per month (Rs. 6996/-  per year).

Example 3: If Bipasha’s Salary is Rs. 15000 than bonus payable to Bipasha shall be = 7000 x 8.33/100 = 583 per month (Rs. 6996/- per year).

Hope this will help you in calculating any type of Bonus, the formula is the same.
