The Supreme Court has held that daily wage earners cannot claim parity of wages with permanent workers and the doctrine of "equal pay for equal work" Will not apply to such daily wage earners or those employed on contract. The Bench said the principle of "Equal pay for equal work" cannot be applied mechanically in every case.
The Hon. judge while delivering his judgement said "If the educational qualifications are different then also the doctrine may have no application. A mere nomenclature designating a person as a carpenter or a craftsman is not enough to come to the conculsion that he is doing the same work as another carpenter or craftsman in regular service".
