Dear Friends,

Under the minimum wages act after every six months there is increase in DA for different category of workers.

Unskilled workers

Skilled workers

Semi Skilled workers.

MY quary is how these categories are defined ?

If Mr. X is a semi skilled worker in a factory what is the criteria for keeping him under semi skilled category ? How he will move in skilled category ?

Is there any crtierai of number of years of service or number of yrs performing the particular job ?

Is there any rules framed by the Govt to define these categories ?

I need clarification on this.

Generally, a "skilled" employee is one who has acquired expertise in a particular industrial craft, usually through an apprentice program - machinist, electrician, and the like.

A "semi-skilled" employee has some training, usually 'on the job', which is short and sketchy. Usually, machine operators, fork lift drivers, cranemen, and the like.

An 'unskilled' employee is a person who performs simple manual tasks which may be quickly learned and has no identifiable skill, usually a helper, sweeper or the like.
