Recently, Government of Maharashtra has released two MW notification i.e. Minimum Wages (Basic wages) notification for the period July'19 to December'19 and Minimum Wages DA (Special Allowance) for the period July'19 to December'19 for shops & establishment category.
After considering Minimum wages notifications (Basic and DA), please advise whether we need to restructure wages as per PF amendment issued in April'19 (Cases where Gross wages are higher than minimum wages).
1) Minimum wages for Shops & Establishment category for Un-skilled employee is Rs.12,623 (Basic-Rs.11632 +DA- Rs.390+ HRA-Rs.601) and his Gross wages till June'19 was Rs. 16, 700.00.
Kindly let me know how wages will be restructured in this case (PF amendment, HRA and Attendance Bonus exempted from PF calculation).
2) Cases where Gross Wages are more than Rs.25,000, do we need to restructure wages for such contractor.
With respect to Maharashtra DA notification for July'19 to December'19 period , will this be applicable to other categories Contractor staff as well because DA mentioned in Jan'19 to June'19 MW notification and current DA notification are different.
Kindly clarify on above points.
Thanks & Regards,
