Under the new code, the limit of allowances will be 50 per cent. The basic salary will be half of the total salary. The calculation of Employees Provident Fund (EPF) contribution will be done from the basic salary. The provident fund (PF) contribution will increase due to the increase in the basic salary.
The new labour wage code proposes to increase working hours to a maximum of 12 hours. Over 15-30 minutes of extra work will be considered as overtime. The new wage code suggests overtime of not less than 30 minutes.
