Hi,

Thank your for ur valuable and instant respond.

I would appreciate if u can tell me about the academic knowledge also. Is there is anything like 'X' person should have minimum 'Y' degree to come under Highly-Skilled, Skilled, Semi-Skilled or unskilled category?
Or this the only definition mentioned in Minimum Wages Act 1948.

Please examine and suggest.

Pankaj

dear All, Drivers come under the minmum wage act. They have to be paid as semi skilled or Skilled. Can somebody tell us this secret? PPMTA does not define min wages act or implement it. Thanks.
