Kochi: The labour department has withdrawn the notice served to Kitex Group directing them to implement the revised minimum wages act. The notice was withdrawn soon after Kitex company forwarded a legal notice pointing out that the move was contempt of court.

Perumbavoor assistant labour officer served notice to Kitex Group on June 30 pointing out that the company is not paying its employees the minimum wage revised in 2019.

However, Kitex forwarded a legal notice pointing out that the notice of the assistant labour officer is contempt of court, because the high court had stayed the said order through an interim order in March 2021.

Following this, the assistant labour officer withdrew the notice. An order issued by the assistant labour commissioner indicated that further actions on this will be subject to the final verdict of the court.
