Apparel workforce awaits VDA (Variable Dearness Allowance)

25th October 2021, Mumbai:

The Clothing Manufacturing Association of India (CMAI) has fully justified the non-payment of VDA factor using the disruption & financial distress & disturbance caused by COVID-19 leading to battered balance sheets of most of the business units and on the back of the fact that the matter is subjudiced.

Here there is a case in point that close to four (4) lakh garment workforce of Karnataka (India), comprising of a good chunk of women workers await for their respective Variable Dearness Allowance (VDA) fixed for the time period of 2020-21.

Let us have a legal view on this, "The garment industry is among the 82 scheduled industries that come under the Minimum Wages Act to where this VDA is technically applicable,”.
