The rules were to get implemented last year in April but it got postponed because of lack of response from states.

The new laws will lead to increase in working hours from 9 hours to 12 hours and in hand salary will also get affected. Under the wages code, the allowances that can be taken by any employee will be capped at 50% of the salary by which monthly pay will get calculated as basic wage.
