Positive Move: NFLMW to be made statutory

Every state in India have their own minimum wage and there is huge disparity between floor minimum wage of states. If we agree with sources then it will be history. To ensure a uniform wage structure and to reduce the disparity in minimum wages in the country center government had proposed the National Floor Level Minimum Wage statutory and recently which is agreed by states also.

Once new amendment come into force, the national floor level minimum wage will become binding on all states and they will have to ensure that unskilled workers are paid the minimum wages fixed by the Center. If state wants to give more than floor level wages then they are most welcome and free to do so.

This is positive move and it will benefit around 360 million workers across the country, most of who are from agriculture and other related activates.
