INCREASE IN MINIMUM WAGES

1176. DR. G. RANJITH REDDY:
SHRI VENKATESH NETHA BORLAKUNTA:
SHRI PASUNOORI DAYAKAR:
SHRIMATI KAVITHA MALOTHU:

Will the Minister of LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT be pleased to state:

(a)whether the Ministry justifies deferring mandatory increase in minimum wages for a year;

(b)whether it impacts 150 million workers and if so, the details thereof; and

(c)whether this results in loss of Rs. 7,500 crores to workers who otherwise would have got this amount as a part of hike in minimum wages?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT (SHRI RAMESWAR TELI)
(a) to (c): There is no deferring of revision of minimum wages in the Central sphere. The Central Government revises the basic rates of minimum wages for employees engaged in Scheduled employments in the Central Sphere every 5 years as stipulated under section 3 (1) (b) of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948. The basic rate of minimum wages for the scheduled employments in the Central sphere was last revised in 2017. Further, in order to protect the minimum wages against inflation, the Central Government revises the Variable Dearness Allowance (V.D.A) on basic rates of minimum wages every six months effective from 1st April and 1st October every year on the basis of Consumer Price Index for Industrial workers and accordingly it was last revised w.e.f. 01.10.2021. Statement showing increased rates of wages on account of revision in VDA from 01.04.2021 to 01.10.2021 is at Annexure ‘A’.

1176. श्री डॉ. जी.रणजीत रेड्डी:
डॉ. वेंकटेश नेता बोरालाकंता:
श्री दयाकर प्रसुन्री:
श्रीमती कविता मलोथू:

क्या श्रम और रोजगार मंत्री यह बताने की कृपा करेंगे कि:

(क) क्या मंत्रालय एक वर्ष के लिए न्यूनतम वेतन में अनिवार्य वृद्धि को टालने को उचित ठहराता है;

(ख) क्या यह 15 करोड़ कामगारों को प्रभावित करता है और यदि हां, तो तत्संबंधी ब्यौरा क्‍या है; और

(ग) क्या इससे श्रमिकों को 7500 करोड़ रुपये की हानि होती है चूंकि यह राशि उन्हें न्यूनतम वेतन में वृद्धि के रूप में मिलती?

उत्तर

श्रम और रोजगार राज्य मंत्री
(श्री रामेश्वर तेली)

(क) से (ग): केंद्रीय क्षेत्र में न्यूनतम मजदूरी के संशोधन को टाला नहीं गया है। केंद्र सरकार, केंद्रीय क्षैत्र में अनुसूचित नियोजनों में नियोजित कर्मचारियों के लिए न्यूनतम मजदूरी की मूत्र दरों में प्रत्येक पांच वर्ष में संशोधन करती है जैसा कि न्यूनतम मजदूरी अधिनियम, 1948 की धारा ३(1)(ख) के अंतर्गत तय किया गया है। केंद्रीय क्षेत्र में अनुसूचित नियोजनों के लिए न्यूनतम मजदूरी की मूल दर को अंतिम बार वर्ष 2017 में संशोधित किया गया था। इसके अतिरिक्त, मुद्रास्फीति से न्यूनतम मजदूरी को संरक्षित करने के लिए, केंद्र सरकार, औद्योगिक कामगारों के लिए उपभोक्ता मूल्य सूचकांक के आधार पर प्रत्येक वर्ष हर छह महीने में 1 अप्रैल और 1 अक्टूबर से न्यूनतम मजदूरी की मूत्र दरों पर परिवर्ती मंहगाई भत्ते (वीडीए) को संशोधित करती है और तदनुसार, इसे अंतिम बार 01.10.2021 को संशोधित किया गया था। दिनांक 01.04.2021 से 01.10.2021 तक वीडीए में संशोधन के कारण बढ़ी हुई मजदूरी की दरों को दर्शाने वाला विवरण अनुबंध-‘क’ पर है।
