Scheduled employment [Section 2(g)]

Scheduled employment [Section 2(g)] :

“Scheduled employment” means an employment specified in the Schedule or any process or branch of work forming part of such employment.

Note: The schedule is divided into two parts namely, Part I and Part II. When originally enacted Part I of Schedule had 12 entries. Part II relates to employment in agriculture. It was realised that it would be necessary to fix minimum wages in many more employments to be identified in course of time. Accordingly, powers were given to appropriate Government to add employments to the Schedule by following the procedure laid down in Section 21 of the Act. As a result, the State Government and Central Government have made several additions to the Schedule and it differs from State to State.
