Hi Ravi, Is our opinion is based on Section 38(3) of the Payment of Bonus Act,1965 which provided that "Every rule made under this section shall be laid as soon as may be after it is made, before each House of Parliament while it is in session for a total period of thirty days, which may be comprised in one session [or in two or more successive sessions], and if before the expiry of the session [immediately following the session or the successive sessions aforesaid], both Houses agree in making any modification in the rule or both Houses agree that the rule should not be made, the rule shall thereafter have effect only in such modified form or be of no effect, as the case may be; so, however, that any such modification or annulment shall be without prejudice to the validity of anything previously done under that rule". Pls confirm. So the amendment approved by cabinet will not have effect unless approved by the Parliament. Thanks in advance

Obviously there is no doubt. They will give effect retrospectively.
