Hello Friend's, Can any one clarify the doubts regarding monthly wages payment to workmen is mandatory to pay through bank account only under any Act of Labour Law. Is it applicable in central Sphere at present or any state govt act. If yes please support the documents, from which it has been effected.

Also clarify under Central Sphere, is any specific provision for height allowance i.e. 20% wages extra pay to height workers working more then 30 feet of height.

Your valuable advice is support for us.

Regards

Dear Manish

Sec 6 of the Payment of Wages Act has been amended by the central government during the Demonetisation time to make it mandatory for the salary to be paid only by bank transfers or crossed cheques where the same is notified by the relevant state government.

Maharashtra govt had already amended Sec 6 in 2013 to make it compulsory to pay wages only by bank transfer or crossed cheques. For other states, you need to find the relevant notification. I think most states issued the notifications. In any case, for better control and safety, paying by bank transfer is better so no one can accuse you of short payment or non payment or fraudulent records

monthly wages payment to workmen is not mandatory to pay through bank account. The payment of wages act directs to pay in Cash or through Bank according to choice of workmen. But to pay by bank is easy but not possible for all where bank is existing in far off places or project area under B&OCW in remote areas

Sec 6 was amended in 2017 as below :

"6. All wages shall be paid in current coin or currency notes or by cheque or by crediting the wages in the bank account of the employee:
Provided that the appropriate Government may, by notification in the Official Gazette, specify the industrial or other establishment, the employer of which shall pay to every person employed in such industrial or other establishment, the wages only by cheque or by crediting the wages in his bank account.".

details of the amendment is at https://labour.gov.in/sites/default/...WAct2017_0.pdf

after the amendment, where notified (and most states notified it), payment through bank account is mandatory

The ammendment of 2017 only removes the requirement of obtaining written authorisation for payment of wages by cheque or through a bank account but not made it mandatory to pay in bank.
