Delhi govt increases minimum wages, new rates applicable from Oct 1 – The Indian Express

The Delhi government has increased the minimum wages in the city and the new rates will be applicable from October 1, officials said Wednesday.

The move will benefit unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled and other workers in all scheduled employment under the aegis of the Delhi government. This order shall also benefit those in clerical and supervisory jobs,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
Sisodia also said that Delhi had the highest minimum wages in comparison with other states.
The dearness allowance was hiked by around Rs 500 in May this year as well.
