India’s Transition from Minimum Wage to Living Wage

India’s Transition from Minimum Wage to Living Wage
  • India aims to replace its minimum wage system with a living wage framework by 2025, seeking assistance from the International Labour Organization (ILO) for technical support in creating and implementing this transition.
  • The living wage is the income necessary for workers and their families to afford a decent standard of living, considering the country’s circumstances and calculated for normal working hours.
  • Despite the passage of the Code on Wages in 2019, implementation remains pending, with proposed universal wage floors applicable across all states.
  • Stagnant national wage floors since 2017 have led to disparities in wage payments, particularly affecting the vast unorganized sector where 90% of India’s workforce is employed.
