Legally 'stipend' is paid only to apprentices engaged under the Apprentices Act, any other payment is not legally considered as stipend. If you are paying at least the minimum wages then you may term is at stipend.

Dear Akhila,
Appointment of interns is different from appointment of apprentices. Former are at par with the employees and all the labour laws are applicable to them. In contrast apprentices are governed under the provisions of Apprentice Act. Money paid to the apprentices per month is called as stipend.
It is common mistake HR professionals do. They use their own definitions without verifying the legal terms. Recently, I had given two clarifying posts. Click the following link to refer that thread:
