For instance, the monthly minimum wage for a skilled employee in a shop or commercial establishment in Delhi is INR 11, while the monthly minimum wage for a skilled employee in a shop or commercial establishment in Maharashtra is INR 8, Another consequence of including this reference to minimum wages is that it creates an additional level of unpredictability in the calculation of the bonus amount.
