Last month, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that around 55 lakh workers in the city would benefit from the increased minimum wages.
The health and education industries have been able to create productive and well-paying work opportunities in the microenterprise sector.
The Supreme Court upheld the Delhi government’s March 2017 notification on higher minimum wages for workers in the city.
The minimum wages for unskilled workers have been fixed at Rs 14,842 per month, for semi-skilled workers at Rs 16,341 per month and for skilled workers at Rs 17,991 per month.
According to a Delhi government official, all permanent, fixed-term, contractual, casual, as well as daily wage workers will benefit from this order.
3.5 lakh teachers in private schools across the state teach more than 20 lakh students.
