7th pay commission: Modi govt clears AAP govt’s minimum wage amendment

Despite the fact that around 50 lakh central government employees are still waiting for the hike in minimum basic pay beyond seventh pay commission recommendation, Modi government on Tuesday cleared the Delhi government’s minimum wage amendment. Delhi’s chief minister took to his Twitter account to inform about the latest development.
Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Finally, central government gives its approval after several months. This will act as a strong deterrent against the employers who do not pay full minimum wages. Delhi government will take strong action against such people.”
Delhi government’s minimum wage amendment has a provision for imposing a jail term as well as a penalty of Rs 20,000 on employers if they are caught not paying minimum wages.
