One of our Branch AOs has raised a question as to whether arrear of Piece Work Profit is to be paid alongwith pay arrears as accrued due to implementation of the restructuring of Artisan Cadre with retrospective effect.

This office has examined the matter and as the restructuring w.e.f. 01/01/2006 has resulted in promotional movement of Industrial Employees guided under Factories Act hence they became entitled for Piece Work Earnings at enhanced rate as per minimum of the higher pre-revised Pay Scales corresponding to the revised pay scales in which their pay has been fixed as a consequence on such restructuring. As such, they have also become entitled for resultant Piece Work Arrears and payments may be released accordingly.

In this connection it is requested to please intimate no. of affected individuals whom the resultant piece work arrears to be paid with approximate budgetary implications for such payments.
