Dear Friends,

There is a significant difference in wages for different category of workers.

  • Unskilled workers

  • Skilled workers

  • Semi Skilled workers.

My query is how these categories are defined ?

If Mr. A is a semi skilled worker in a factory; what are the criteria for keeping him under semi skilled category ? How he will move in skilled category ?

Is there any criteria of number of years of service or number of years performing the particular job ?

Is experience an issue in such categorization?

Is education an indicative factor in such grading?

Is there any rules framed by the Govt to define these categories ?

I need clarification on this.
