But due to election, it could not be implemented. When BJP Govt came in power, the owners files a case in High Court whereas High Court rejected the plea saying this Rs. 176 minimum wage must be given.

But till date, nothing was implemented and thus to remind the Govt about its duty towards the working class, the deputation was placed.

Also there are more guidelines given by High Court about wages.
