Under Payment of Wages Act, the time limit is 1 month at max. But all employee's does not qualify to be dealt under Payment of Wages Act. In that case your contract with employer is the guide. If nothing has been stated there in. On the basis of reasonability the period deemed will be 1 month. As every one know it as wage period. This basic assumption can be overturn by a specific point in the contract toward this issue and not otherwise.
Hi Randeep
if employee falls within the purview of payment of wages act. 1936 then No employer can fix the period of one month in form of payment of wages however sec 4 of payment of wages act. 1936 deal with fixation of wages according to this sec wages period can be fixed daily basis weekly basis half month basis or full month basis as the case may be but not exceeding the period of one month whereas according to sec 5 of payment of wages act. 1936 if employee strength is less then 1000 the wages shall be disburse on 7th or before of next month if employee strength is 1000 or more then wages shall be disburse on 10th or before of next month?
wage period more then one month is the voilation of payment of wages act. 1936

Sec 4 of the Payment of wages act says, every employer is responsible for paying the wages to his employees and it should not be exceeded more than one month.Which means every employee should get wages monthly once.
