AAP Government has approved around 37 per cent hike in Minimum Wages in Delhi


Minimum Wages

Unskilled, Semi-Skilled and Skilled Workers will now get Rs. 13,350, Rs 14,698 and Rs 16,182 per month respectively.

Delhi Government has approved an around 37-per cent hike in minimum wages for unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled persons in national capital.

Announcing Cabinet’s decision, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated that his government has cleared all recommendations of a 15-member committee set up by former Lt Governor Najeeb Jung last year to revise minimum wages.

This is second time AAP government has approved an increase in minimum wages.

Former LG had in September last year declared that the recommendations of Government- Appointed Committee as “null and void”, stating that the AAP Government did not seek his prior approval to form panel.

Delhi CM Kejriwal further added that the Committee’s recommendations will be sent to the Lt Governor Anil Baijal and that he himself would meet LG and request him to give his nod at earliest so that workers are benefited.

According to the Cabinet’s decision, minimum wages for the unskilled persons will be Rs 13,350 per month against existing Rs 9,724 per month. For semi-skilled and the skilled persons, it will increase from Rs 10,764 to Rs 14,698 and from Rs 11,830 to Rs 16,182 per month respectively.
