Dear Balaji,
I am not sure whether you've registered your centralized kitchens in the respective State's Shops&Estt Act. If so you've to pay the minimum rates fixed by the respective State.

Dear Umakanthan Sir,
It means if an Organisation is registered with shop and Establishment Act of the respective State then the wages to be paid to its Labour according to wages fixed by the Respective State from time to time.
Warm regards,

With due respect to Mr. Umakanthan, I would like to differ. Since the NGO operates for many States, the appropriate government for them is Central government. Hence, they must pay wages as notified by central govt but of course subject to the rates of respective States whichever is higher.
Other seniors may comment.

If the NGO is registered under State Shops and Establishment Act, then they have to follow states Minimum wages act as per my view.
