Government can do major changes in official working hours, provident fund and gratuity from April 1, 2021.
With the three wage code bills likely to come into effect from April 1 this year, there could be an increase in gratuity and PF, while the in-hand salary could decrease.
Under the New Definition of Wage.
The allowances will be a maximum of 50% of the total salary.
This means that the basic pay and dearness allowance in government jobs should be 50 per cent or more of the total salary from April.
It is noteworthy that for the first time in the country’s 73-year history, labour laws are being change.
The government claims that will prove beneficial to both employers and workers.
Salaries will be Reduced but PF will Increase.
The basic pay should be 50% or more of the total salary.
This will change the salary structure of most of the employees, as the non-allowance portion of the salary is usually less than 50 per cent of the total salary.
The share of allowances in the total salary becomes even higher.
Increasing the basic pay will also increase your PF.
PF is based on basic pay.
The increase in basic pay will increase the PF, which means that the pay in the in-hand will be deducted.
The Amount at Retirement will Increase.
The increase in gratuity and PF contribution will eventually increase the amount received after retirement.
This will make it easier for people to live a pleasant life after retirement.
Salary structure of high-paying officers will change the most and will be the worst affected.
The increase in PF and gratuity will also increase the cost of companies.
Because they also have to contribute more to the PF for the employees.
These things will also affect the balance sheets of the companies.
New Rules to be Proposed for 12 Hours of Work & Overtime.
The new draft law has proposed to increase the maximum hours of work to 12.
