Both Central & State Governments issue notifications on Minimum wages from time to time. if there is disparity in wages then which notification is to be followed. Is there any specific conditions laid down by the Central or state that " whichever Minimum wages is higher for the given period should applied "
Can any one show evidence for this

As far as it relates to Haryana State we have not seen any such instructions in the minimum rates of wages gazette notification that employee in a given schedule employment will be getting higher minimum rates of wages if the minimum rates of wages of the central Govt. are on higher side in the similar schedule employment.

Revision in Minimum Wages is announced by both Central and State Governments by an official notification.
Central Government is incharge of ensuring this Minimum Wages are followed in the companies / establishments covered under their jurisdiction. For example, if you carry out construction work or any other work, in central Government offices such as Passport Office, Airport Authority of India, ESI office, State Bank of India, etc. etc., then the Minimum Wages will be applicable as per Central Government notification.
Similarly, State Governments will also have jurisdiction in those areas coming under their control. For example, Corporation buiding of the city/town and such places and all other offices. In such places, minimum wages as per the notification of State Government will have to be followed.
It all depends as to for that establishment whether 'appropriate government' is central government or state government.
The definition reads as under
"appropriate government" means-
(i) in relation to any scheduled employment carried on by or under the authority of the Central Government or a railway administration, or in relation to a mine, oilfield or major port, or any corporation established by a Central Act, the Central Government, and
(ii) in relation to any other scheduled employment, the State Government.
I hope now it is clear.

The position has been mandated in the notification of 12th may 2009 in explanation attached to minimum wage notification issued by central government. Ask for a copy from joe at nipm.org. obviously the above does not apply where only state government is appropriate government. Thus it applies mainly telecom, refineries railways etc
