Dear Saswata Banerjee,
Though the Payment of Wages Act, 1936 is a Central Act and Central Govt. could have easily made a general provision asking the employers to pay the wages either by cheque or by crediting the wages in their employees' bank accounts, but it has been left to the State Govts.to examine the feasibility, convenience and other allied factors and issue notification for the Industrial establishments under their jurisdiction accordingly.
