Odisha seeks wage hike for convict prisoners

Odisha’s prison authorities have sought a hike in the minimum wages of convict prisoners from ₹40 per day, one of lowest wage rates in the country.
The Directorate of Prisons and Correctional Services contended that since the Labour department had revised minimum wages of all category labourers in the State, convict prisoners’ wages should be increased to ₹100 for skilled, ₹75 for semi-skilled and ₹60 for unskilled prisoners.
Skilled prisoners work in different manufacturing units such as weaving, tailoring, making of incense sticks, fly ash brick-making and phenyl-making.
