To answer to your question needs a few more details. The rates of Minimum Wages are generally fixed and declared by the state governments and they are for specified employment. Hence,the MW rates of a particular State are not applicable to other State. So also, rates of MW of a type of employment can not be of other type of employment unless both are same. In your case, you must specify the type of industry i. e. engineering, Hospital, etc. Further, the rates are also dependent of the area where the industry is located. These two factors are necessary to determine the rates of MW. The composition of MW in general are Basic Wages and Special Allowance. The SA is declared twice in a year and is applicable for the period of 6 prevailing months. I have not understood the meaning "Is it fix or it is calculated.?" This makes no sense to me.
