PFA copy of SC judgement In Airfreight Ltd v Stata of Karnataka & ors wherein it has been clearly and categorically mentioned that where the employer is paying gross wages exceeding the minimum wages, he need not pay DA seperately. However, SC in the judgement had mentioned that such wages should be as per Sec 2 (h) of the Minimum Wages Act 1948. Since Sec 2 (h) of the MW Act defines that "wages" includes HRA (copy enclosed), we may pay MW - comprising of Basic, DA and HRA and the remaining as other allowances.
