Dear HR Experts, please clarify :-
a) Can we pay stipend to Apprentices over & above the designated limit mentioned by the Apprentices council and What would be the statutory liability if we pay stipend over & above the designated limit?
Yes you can pay over and above the statutory limit of stipend but only thing which will not applicable is refund from apprenticeship board. After completion of successful apprenticeship training employer can claim the stipend amount from apprenticeship board while that time board will consider only as per specified limits.
