Thanks kapil.

to clear my doubt I have gone through minimum wages act 1948 also. it says:

(h) "wages" means all remuneration, capable of being expressed in terms of money, which would, if the terms of the contract of employment, express or implied, were fulfilled, be payable to a person employed in respect of his employment or of work done in such employment, [7] [and includes house rent allowance] but does n6t include

(i) the value of -

(a) any house- accommodation, supply of light, water, medical attendance, or

(b) any other amenity or any service excluded by general or special order of the appropriate Government;

(ii) any contribution paid by the employer to any Pension Fund or Provident Fund or under any scheme of social insurance;

(iii) any travc1ling allowance or the value of any traveling concession;

(iv) any sum paid to the person employed to defray special expenses entailed on him by the nature of his employment; or

(v) any gratuity payable on discharge;

means it includes Employee contribution of PF and ESIC, permissible deduction.

thanks again

don't be confuse with minimum wages and pf , esi. as per mininum wages act the basic rate has to be revised as per categorie so when basic rate will be changed in revised then pf esi will be deduct from the new basic rate

Yes Minimum wages includes ESI (1.75) & P F (12%) contributions of the employee. For eg For a unskilled labor employed in central govt projects in Delhi minimum wage he should be paid is 203 rs. If he works 10 days his total earnings will be 2030 Rs in which the employer can deduct the above mentioned employee share of of ESI & PF. ie 2030-(36+243)=1751,Net pay. I think now it is clear.
Thank you

As far as concern with the Minimum Wages, its a part of the earnings only, not deductions of employee & thats very crystal clear.
Don't mixup & confuse.
Minimum Wages = Basic + DA declared by respective authority time to time for the specified catagories.
