Minimum wage notification - annexure

Hi All,


The category into which a worker is graded defines the salary he/she receives as per minimum wages notification of the state.

My query is do all the states release the annexure for defining the categories along with the minimum wage notification. Does Haryana government releases the annexure of defining which worker falls in which category (skilled / unskilled / semi - skilled).

Incase if the state does not issue the annexure is it mandatory for a factory to define the category in written ?

For example can an Inline checker and end line checker fall in the category of unskilled workers.


Thanks & Regards,

Rashmi Dutta

Hi Rashmi,

It is mandatory for all the states to have the category of industries operate in the repective states. And the states should have to come up with minimum wages notification for different industries, different categories every year which gets revised based on the index.

Attaching the minimum wages notification for states across India which was shared by one of the members in this forum

Hope it serves the purpose.

Hi Saravan,

May be i was not clear in my last posting .My query is which worker falls under which category  - is this defined by the state. For example Checker will fall under which category in haryana. Secondly will Inline checker and endline checker be under the same category. Can they be clessified into unskilled section.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Rashmi,

I now understand the query well. In fact, even the designations are defined by the state for each of the industry in that state. Among designations, there can be different skill levels (highly skilled, skilled etc)

For eg, in your case, Ironer or Pressman is a designation defined in the minimum wages notification and there are different skill levels in this designation like highly skilled, skilled, semi skilled.

To be short, the designations like Ironer, Checker, Tailor are defined by the state and the according wage leves for each is defined based on the skill levels (high, semi)

But its upto the factories to decide the skill levels of the employees based on Industrial Engineering, experience, the operations performed by the operator etc.

Hope clear, For better reference, pls refer to the gazette notification of the respective state which will have the approved minimum wages notification industry wise.
