The Delhi government triggered the increase in minimum wages for all sectors across industries in order to provide some relief to the rising economic challenges exacerbated by high inflation and other factors that have impacted all segments of society, according to Anand, who added, “The minimum wage given to labourers in Delhi is the highest as compared to any other state in the country.”

According to, the rise in minimum monthly pay will assist unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled, and other employees in all scheduled employment categories. Anand argued that employees in the unorganised sector should be entitled to dearness allowance, a calculation based on inflation and allowance granted to government employees and retirees, in addition to minimum wages, which are typically paid to state and central government employees.
