Since majority of our employees of the Steel Company are drawing salary/wages higher than the limit laid down in the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965, they are not eligible for bonus under the Act. However, respecting our old traditions, the Company is going to pay bonus to all employees in the unionised category.
