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.
