Proposal to hike minimum wages in 23 industries

  • A draft notification by the Karnataka Department of Labour proposes to revise the common minimum wage for workers in 23 industries early next year
  • This includes those working in industries like laundry, hotels, clubs and private chit funds
  • While the amount prescribed is for eight hours of work, the amount will automatically be made proportionate to the hours of work in case of professions such as domestic work, where workers do not necessarily put in eight hours.
  • Domestic workers and those working in 22 other industries may  be able to claim a minimum wage of Rs. 10,520 a month, a hike of around Rs. 4,000.
  • Minimum wages are revised every three to five years. It is a periodic revision
  • There will be slabs for this wage and the revised amount was arrived at based on the cost of living in a city like Bengaluru, where a minimum of Rs. 10,000 is essential
  • Minister for Labour also launched a portal (karlabour.in) that brings a gamut of processes such as licence fee payment, registration and renewal, online.
