Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya on 7th December 2015 introduced Payment of Bonus (amendment) Bill in the Parliament to increase the eligibility limit for bonus payment from Rs. 10,000 salary per month to Rs. 21,000. The calculation ceiling will also be increased from Rs. 3,500 to Rs. 7,000 per month.

Considering the cost of living and other connected matters the ceilings should have been increased much more.
