THE MINIMUM WAGES ACT 1948 OBJECT :An act to provide for fixing minimum rates of wages in certain employment

After 23 years, that is 1951, the ILO Conference at its 34th Session adopted a Minimum Wage Fixing Convention No.99 and a Recommendation No.83 for agricultural employments. Since then a number of conventions and recommendations have been adopted having important bearings on the question of minimum wages.

India has ratified the ILO convention on Minimum Wage Fixing Machinery and has enacted a central minimum wage legislation, known as Minimum Wages Act, 1948. As in other countries, here also the need for fixing minimum wages arose from the conditions created by the payment of low and sweated wages in the unorganised and organised sectors of industries, and consequent need for protecting workers against exploitation. The Indian Labour Conference at its 5th session approved, in principle, the enactment of minimum wage legislation. A draft Bill was prepared and considered at its 6th and 7th sessions, and at a special sub-committee meeting in 1946. The Bill was introduced in the Central Assembly and it became an Act in March 1948.
