Hi, Can anyone please tell me the rules and regulations as regards to Contract Labour Deployment in any Company and what are the minimum wages to be paid to such contract labors, in Maharashtra. Thanks in advance.

There is no separate list of Min.wage for contract labour. The existing legislation Contract Labour Regulation and Abolition Act is silent over the issue. The wage is decided by the the Minimum Wage Act only.

Dear Shiva,
The Minimum Wages Act is a separate piece of legislation which notifies the Minimum Wages payable to a Class of Workers or Industry which is covered by the Schedule, on a bi-yearly basis. This schedule may vary from one state to another.
On the other hand Contract Labour Act deals with Contract Labour employment in industries to which the Act applies and Relevant State and Central Rules.
So, while deciding on payment of Minimum Wages please contact the Circle Labour Inspector for details. For example the Minimum Wages varies for the same class of worker in different regions of West Bengal.
The main thing to remember is that the status of employment i.e., contract, casual, badli have no effect or link with the Minimum Wages rate of a region.
Kind Regards,

Dear Satish,
You have asked for minimum wages for contract labour as per clra. This is made clear that no minimum wages are fixed as per clra i.e.Contract Labor(R&A) Act.1970. Minimum wages are fixed under The Minimum Wages Act,1948 & the rates so declared for different schedule employments by the appropriate Govt. are same for directly & indirectly employed employees. Under CL (R&A) Act & rules if the work done by the contract workers are the same or simillar that of employer's workmen then in that case wage rates will be the same as that of directly employed workers.
Comments are submitted as per your request.
