Title of Announcement : Govt. to increase Minimum Wages for Labourers
Concerned Date : 24 / 09 / 2013
Details :
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on 23 September 2013 in the recent assembly session announced that the state government was contemplating to enhance the minimum wages for labourers in the state soon.
Responding to a Calling Attention motion brought in the house by People's Party of Arunachal member Laeta Umbrey on the plight of the labourers with meagre wages when the prices of essential commodities have sky-rocketed, Tuki said the state government recently took a proposal for revision of wages which would be taken up in the cabinet soon.
"We are proposing to fix the new wage from Rs 150 to 190 per day area wise depending on the climate and topography of the area. According, we have decided to hike the wage separately for labourers working in soft and hard areas," the chief minister disclosed.
He said, in addition to the daily wage, the government also fixed a medical allowance of Rs 250 for all categories of labours besides extra allowance of Rs 500 for those working in hard areas. Minimum wages for labourers were subjected to Minimum Wage Act, 1948 which envisaged fixation once in five years.
Earlier, raising the motion, Umbrey suggested for constitution of an advisory board which should periodically review the wages.
