If gross salary is more than minimum wages , it is considered covered Minimum Wages in the Karnataka - CiteHR

Hi Team,

If gross salary is more than minimum wages , it is considered covered Minimum Wages in the Karnataka

As per the Government Notification Minimum Wages is Rs 10000/- but we are paying Basic+DA is Rs 8000/- and Special allowance is Rs.5000/- and Other allowance is Rs 5000/- So his total fixed Gross is Rs 18000/-

As per Notification we are paying 2 thousand less but fixed Gross is more than minimum wages , is it acceptable or not

Kindly clarify , if you have any notification or judgment kindly share with us.

Thanks & Regards

There are two judgments by the SC that the Total Pay is the matter and No State can compel payment of DA as a separate component.

Dear Vasanth,

Yours is an oft-repeated and elaborately answered question in this forum. If you are not satisfied with the previous replies on your present query or failed to go through them for whatever reason, my suggestion to you would be to go through the entire text of the Supreme Court's judgment in Airfreight Ltd Vs. The State of Karnataka and Others ( AIR 1999 SC 2459 ).

The ratio decidendi of the above judgment is that the parity of the Statutory Minimum Wages and that of industry wages actually paid shall be determined on the basis of the sum total of the included components of wages in the latter as defined under the MW Act,1948.

Dear Vasanth

GOK fixed minimum wages as Basic and CLA components only. As such wages should not be less than this.
