Many salaried people across the country have either lost their jobs or have had to take pay cuts thanks to the pandemic and the resultant economic downturn. But that doesn’t mean they’re not hoping for a bonus this Diwali.

After the central government and some of the state governments announced a festive bonus for employees with the aim of boosting economic activity, others took to social media to complain about getting bonuses in gifts rather than cash.

There were plenty of jokes about soan papdi and cookery sets, and many shared memes about the situation.

Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are among some of the states that have promised to give a bonus to its employee ahead of Diwali later this month.
