ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE (IC) FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT (SHRI SANTOSH KUMAR GANGWAR)

(a): Under the provisions of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948, both Central and State Governments are appropriate Governments to fix, review and revise the minimum wages of the workers employed in the scheduled employment under their respective jurisdictions. A copy of current rate of minimum wages w.e.f. 01.10.2019 for Central Sphere is at Annexure ‘A’ and category wise variation in Minimum wages per day in States/UTs is at Annexure ‘B’.

(b): Considering suggestions received from various stakeholders in tripartite consultations, a draft Labour Code on Wages Bill, 2019, had been prepared after amalgamation, simplification and rationalization of the relevant provisions of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948; the Payment of Wages Act, 1936; the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965; and the Equal Remuneration Act, 1976. Now, the Code on Wages, 2019 has been notified on 08-08-2019 under which the preliminary draft rules have been uploaded on the web-site on 01-11-2019 seeking comments of all stakeholders including general public regarding various provisions of the Act.

The Code on Wages, 2019 will ensure minimum wages to all and timely payment of wages to all employees irrespective of the sector of employment without any wage ceiling.
