Dear Sir, 

It is not justified and under section 10 of the Payment of Bonus Act 1965 , Employer should pay minimum 8.33% bonus to thier employees those who are drawing less than Rs.10,000/- per month , whether the Employer runs the concern  in profit or loss.

Yes, Mr. Murti is right, but there is exception cluase for new company who is not getting profit for first five year. After five  year statutory bonus is applicable.

Dear Mr. Vinod ji,

The company is already MNC  which is covered under BONUS Act. Now the existing company due to losses another MNC company taken. So is it mandatory to pay the Bonus the current MNC company ?

It is an interesting thread and learned experts/members have enriched the forum with their valuable advice.

It is felt that new management has assumed control of the company without violating any terms of employment that were put in place by the former management and vintage of employees hall be counted in service. The new management {may be having the status of parent company now} may pay bonus.

Valuable advice of learned experts/members is sought.
