Safeguards In Payment Of Minimum Wages:
 
 
Wages in kind (Sec.11). Minimum wages payable under this Act shall be paid in cash [Sec.11 (1)].
But where it has been the custom to pay wages wholly or partly in kind, the appropriate government may by notification in the official Gazette, authorize the payment of minimum wages either wholly or partly in kind [Sec.11 (20].
 
The appropriate government may by notification in the official Gazette authorize the provision of the supply of essential commodities at confessional rates [Sec.11 (3)].
 
Payment of minimum rates of wages (Sec.12). Where in respect of any scheduled employment minimum wages have been fixed, the employer shall pay to every employee wages at a rate not less than the minimum rate of wages fixed for that class of employees in the employment.
 
Such wages shall be paid without any deductions except as may be authorized. Where the contract rate of wages is higher, the statutory obligation does not come into play [Sec.12 (1)].
Section 12 of the Act does not affect the provisions of the Payment of Wages Act, 1936 [Sec.12 (2)].
