Description: Using the data from SNO NCD phase, SuperK, Borexino and KamLAND Solar phase, we derive in a model independent way, bounds on the possible components in the solar neutrino flux. We update the limits on the antineutrino ($barnu_x$) flux and sterile ($nu_s$) component and compare them with the previous results obtained using SNO Salt phase data and data from SuperKamiokande experiments. It is affirmed that the upper bound on $barnu_x$ is independent of the $nu_s$ component. We recover the $nu_s$ and $barnu_x$ upper bounds existing in the literature. We also obtain bounds on $f_B$, the SSM normalization factor and the common parameter range for $f_B$ and the $nu_s$ components in the light of latest data. In summary, we update, in a model independent way, the previous results existing in literature in the light of latest solar neutrino data.
