The Morcha, chaired by Agnivesh, works for the registration of unorganised sector labour in Delhi and ensuring payment of minimum wages to them.
"A majority of workers are not aware of their right to be paid minimum wages. We will approach stakeholders for a campaign to raise awareness on this," he said.
The Minimum Wages (Delhi) Amendment Act, 2017, passed by the state Assembly was approved by President Ram Nath Kovind last week. It provides for a fine ranging from Rs 20,000 to Rs 50,000 and jail term between one to three years, for non-payment of minimum wages.
