As per below notification, should employer increase the salary of employees to Rs.24,000/- per month whose salary is less than Rs.24,000/-. Pls clarify the doubt.

Hi All
Please do not confuse this with minimum wages act. It is not necessary that a person who is getting salary less than 24000 should be now paid Rs.24000/-
thanks

The Payment of wages act does not specify as to the wages to be paid to an employee. It only lays down the conditions which are required to be followed while making monthly payment of wages by an employer to his employees. Increase in wage limit is to cover more employees within its ambit and it should not be misconstrued as increase in amount of monthly wages payable to an employee.

Wage ceiling under Sec1, sub sec 6 means that those who get wages upto the ceiling are covered by the Payment of Wages Act, i.e., the provisions of this Act applies to those employees. The Government periodically raises this ceiling because the wages of employees are increased periodically in line with inflation and cost of living.
If the wage ceiling under the Act is not increased in line with increase in wages, most of the employees would go out of coverage of the Act and would lose all the benefits that are conferred on them by the Act. Hope this clarifies many queries.
