The Ministry of Labour and Employment (MoLE) on November 01, 2019, has invited inputs/ comments/ suggestions on Code on Wages, 2019 from various stakeholders including general public.

The objective of the code of wages is to widen the scope to ensure equity and ease of compliance of labour laws. Further the endeavour is to remove multiplicity of definitions and authorities without compromising on the basic concepts of welfare and benefits to workers and to bring transparency and accountability into the system.

The Code amend and consolidate the laws relating to wages and bonus and matters connected therewith or incidental thereto, namely:

a)       Payment of Wages Act of 1936;

   b)      Minimum Wages Act of 1948;

   c)       Payment of Bonus Act of 1965; and

d)      Equal Remuneration Act of 1976

into a single code and provides for a national minimum wages for all workers.

MoLE has decided to receive the inputs/ comments/ suggestions within a one month from the date of its upload on the website and the same may be addressed to Rajiv Ranjan ([email protected]), Deputy Director, and Bikash Kumar Malick ([email protected]), Assistant Director.
