Thanks Sunil for the confirmation. Is there any change in the limit for paying Bonus which was upto Basic of Rs. 3,500? I think this limit hasn't changed.

Notification number 2260(E) is w.r.t. Payment of Wages Act and not payment of bonus act. Can U please clarify. The increase in the limit from Rs. 10k to Rs. 18K is w.r.t. sub-section 6 of section 1 of the Payment of Wages Act
