Probationers are not exempted from the definition of employee under the Minimum Wages Act. Please read the definition and You will understand that a Probationer is also eligible for Minimum wages if it is a scheduled employment and for which MW has been notified.

Labour laws do not make any classification as to categories of employee. It service conditions of employer, which make such classification. If you are employee as defined under the specific Act , you are entitled for the protection of the such. Minimum Wages Act also does not make any such classification. So probationer working in the scheduled employment notified by the appropriate government is also entitle for protection Minimum wages act.
