Payment of Wages Act – 10 Question Part 2

Payment of Wages Act – Part 2

Prior to 1936, there was no law regarding the regulation of payment to workmen. It was as early as 1925 that a Private Bill called the “Weekly Payment Bill” was for the first time introduced in the Legislative Assembly. The Bill was, however withdrawn on an assurance from the Government that the matter was under active consideration of the Government ar that time. This was an attempt to remedy some of the evils like delay in payment of wages, non-payment of wages, deductions made from wages on account of fines imposed by the employer. etc. As a result of that Payment of Wages Act was passed in the year 1936 and came into force on 21 st March 1936. The Payment of Wages Act was amended in the year 1937,1957,1964 and in 1976 according to the needs of the situation prevailing at that time. The Payment of Wages (Amendment) Act, 1976 extends the Act to the whole of India.

The Payment of Wages Act regulates the payment of wages to certain classes of persons employed in industry and its importance cannot be under-estimated. The Act guarantees payment of wages on time and without any deductions except those authorised under the Act.
