  1. DEAR SIR,
    The chart which shows the salary structure in it ie in last column ( Total per month ) is having a difference in amount. For example as mentioned for unskilled (Zone 1 ) if you add Basic salary + HRA + VDA the total comes to 12405.75 and it is mentioned 11815. And this difference is shown in every row. Can you explain why it is show or it is wrongly written.

    Kind Regards

    1. Hi Anurag,

      HRA does not come under the calculation of Minimum Wages. Only Basic and VDA are considered to calculate the Minimum Wages.
      So to find the Minimum Wages you have to add the Basic Per Month and VDA Per Month only. (Basic Per Month + VDA Per Month = Total Per Month)
      Hope now it’s clear.

      In the table, HRA is also mentioned because it has also increased/revised.
