Hi, We are a start-up. We supply House keeping and Shop keeping staffs. As of now we have only 10 staffs. I wanted to know what is the minimum wage I must pay them according to the labour law?
Thanks in Advance.

Hello, As per law, your city comes under Area A and the minimum wage is Rs.13598/- per month. Regards Chandana Hyma

Thanks Chandana Hyma. Will there be a problem if I pay my staffs 8000/month. Because they are willing to take thAt amount. If yes what is the procedure.

Yes, paying anything less than prescribed under the MW Act is a violation thereof and is illegal even if the employees take the amount.
If you pay an employee more, I do not think they will object anyway.

This is unskilled category
The rates will not be so high for unskilled employees in chennai
It is around 228 per day in TN (can't find for category A specifically), so the same for chennai city can't be so high
