Our complex has 100 flats. We have negotiated rates with a security agency for providing four security guards. The agreed amount is a lumpsum amount paid to the agency. The agency retain their commission and pay the security guards. Is there any minimum amount we should pay to the agency for their services? How do we ensure that the agency is paying the security staff in line with the Karnataka minimum wages act? What is the minimum remuneration which has to be paid for one security guard and one female housekeeping staff who is deployed to clean our common area premises? Please guide. Thanks. Ramesh

Dear Ramesh,
do check the minimum wages act of Karnataka and see the rates
the guards should get paid after deduction of 12% for PF, .75% for ESIC [ latest notification ] and Profession tax 175 from his basic and DA.
Say if basic and DA is 100 then he should get approx. 85 .
he will also be entitled if you pay bonus, leave overtime etc.
