Dear Seniors,

Could anybody please clarify what is current limit & what is the applicability criteria of this act to the employees.

According to this act Authorized deduction are limited to 75% of wages in case of Cooperative society deduction & 50% in case of other.

Could anybody please put any more light on the same
Present limit had enhanced. The percentage of deductions mentioned by u is correct but the deductions should b for those mentioned in the act / permitted.
Dear Prashant,

For applicability you may go through section 1(4) of this Act.As far as the wage ceiling is concerned at present this Act applies to wages payable to an employed person in respect of a wage period if such wages for that wage period do not exceed Rs.10,000/- per month. For deduction in wages you may go through section 7 of The Payment Of wages Act, 1936.
