Hi,
Thank your for ur valuable and instant respond.
I would appreciate if u can tell me about the academic knowledge also. Is there is anything like 'X' person should have minimum 'Y' degree to come under Highly-Skilled, Skilled, Semi-Skilled or unskilled category?
Or this the only definition mentioned in Minimum Wages Act 1948.
Please examine and suggest.

Pankaj

dear All, Drivers come under the minmum wage act. They have to be paid as semi skilled or Skilled. Can somebody tell us this secret? PPMTA does not define min wages act or implement it. Thanks.
hi,
can anyone help me in categorising the employees of telecom ?
like sales ppl , infra employees, network operations etc should be put in which category -semiskilled or skilled and if they are outsourced then wats the scenario?

Can a helper asked to do skilled work in absence of skilled employee - like refractory work, scaffolding work and fitter job like dismantling & assembling work ?
NO HR personnel to answer the question "Can a helper asked to do skilled work in absence of skilled employee - like refractory work, scaffolding work and fitter job like dismantling & assembling work ?"
How to categories Unskilled Semi-Skilled & Skilled when the workers are performing same duties. How long we can keep a worker in a same category - performing same duties since for long time.
