Dept heads asked to enforce minimum wage law in Delhi

NEW DELHI: With widespread flouting of minimum wage norms in several government and private establishments, the Delhi government on Monday asked its department heads to enforce the minimum wage law for workers in their respective industries. It may be noted that the Delhi government had launched a 10-day special drive to check whether minimum wage rules set by it are being followed in the national capital, and conducted inspections at 20 public and private institutions.

With widespread flouting of minimum wage norms in several government and private establishments, the Delhi government on Monday asked its department heads to enforce the minimum wage law for workers in their respective industries. During its 10-day-long `Operation Minimum Wage` undertaken during December 10-21, the Labour Ministry found several workplaces not complying with the minimum wage law by either not paying the wages on time, paying less wages, or taking the money back once transferred into the bank account.

In an advisory issued on Monday, the labour ministry asked the principal secretaries, secretaries, and the heads of departments of the Delhi government to "ensure that workers/employees engaged in their respective department through contractors are paid wages

on time".
