The apparel export industry has asked the government to clear the confusion prevailing on the issue of minimum wages under code of wages for the garment industry. This has impacted the booking of export orders, and to restore the confidence of foreign buyers it is important that a suitable clarification is issued by the government. In the present stressful and challenging times, any additional burden on account of doubling the minimum wages from the present about Rs. 9,000/- per month to Rs. 18,000/- will make garment manufacturing unviable and unsustainable in future.
