Minimum Wages, Health Benefit For All Media & Entertainment Industry Workers Soon - The Industrial Employment (standing Orders) Act, 1946

Artist, technicians, managers, skilled and unskilled workers across the whole spectrum of the audio-visual industry will soon be eligible for appointments with written contracts, and get minimum wages, safe working conditions, health benefits and electronic payment of salary. The labour ministry is working on a new legislation that will supersede the Cine-Workers and the Cinema Theatre Workers (Regulation of Employment) Act of 1981. The move is expected to formalize the $20 billion  media and entertainment industry. Currently, workforce involved only in cinema theatre, cinematographic film and feature films (a full-length cinema) were  covered under the Act and paid in cash, often depriving other workers involved in documentary or other audio-visual production of bare minimum benefits of a workers. The industry provided employment, both direct and indirect, to over 5 million people in 2017. Currently, most of the semi-skilled or unskilled workflow in the audio-visual industry works without any agreement and is a daily wages earner thus deprived of many benefits including even minimum wages in certain cases.
