Respected sirs, this is a case of a CPSU, where Registration of Principal Employer under CLR&A Act, 1970 has been obtained From ALC (Central).

Two Types of Contracts have generally been awarded 1. Service Contract (Repair and Maintenance Work) 2. Works Contract (All major Contract)

For the Service contract, they are paying minimum wages @ specified by CLC (Central), and for Works, contract estimates are prepared through Project Scheduled Rate which is derived from minimum wages @ specified by the Labour department of State Govt.

Now, there is always labor unrest for different wage rates in the same establishment. Kindly examine in the legal context.

Being a Central Govt. Sector undertaking who is the appropriate government as per Minimum Wages Acts 1948 and what will be the solution as described above.

Section 2 (b) of the Minimum Wages Act 1948 defines the appropriate government to be:
(b) "appropriate Government" means,--
(i) in relation to any scheduled employment carried on by or under the authority of the Central Government or a railway administration, or in relation to a mine, oilfield or major port, or any corporation established by a Central Act, the Central Government, and
(ii) in relation to any other scheduled employment, the State Government;
So, the Appropriate Government is Central Government only if the establishment falls within sub-section (i) and for all others it is State Government. All PSUs cannot be stated to be establishments carried on by or under the Central Government, here the legal principle is that a company is different from its share holders. Thus even if the company is a Government Company as defined in the Companies Act 2013, yet it may not be having Central Government as the Appropriate Government.
Looking to your problem, it is inappropriate to distinguish between Service Contract and Works Contract as regards applicability of the notified rates of minimum wages. Most of these labourers would be working side by side and the heartburn it causes due to an artificial categorisation cannot be just wished away, howsoever negligible the difference may be. It will remain a sore point and will erupt time and again unless resolved probably. You may take a call after critically examining the applicability of the definition clause and the legal principle mentioned above.

Minimum wages is paid as per scheduled employment and category. There is a different wage rate prescribed for different category. Therefore, you may need to analyse the categories before taking any action.
