He said the government would on August 27 convene a meeting with various companies and organisations such as Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry , Confederation of Indian Industries and the Associated Chambers of Commerce of India to discuss various aspects of the summit.

“After the success of the first job summit, we are planning to organise the second job summit. It will be an open platform where all people can come and apply for jobs,” Rai said at a press conference at the Delhi Secretariat.

The first summit was only for those who had registered in advance but the second one will be thrown open to everyone.

Earlier this month, during the 11-day summit, a total of 2,108 people, including 300 disabled, were selected by 38 companies.

The jobs offered included security guards, attendants, helpers, housekeeping, tele-callers, financial planning advisers, drivers, peons and data entry operators.

The Delhi government on Sunday said it is seeking legal advice on the further course of action after the Delhi High Court quashed its notification on minimum wages.

Expressing his disappointment over the Court’s decision, Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai said that the government is studying the verdict and “will arrive at a conclusion on how to ensure the implementation of revised higher minimum wages” for workers in all categories.

“I have convened a meeting of the Labour Department on Monday to decide the future course of action, including the next legal remedy available to the government,” Rai said.

The Delhi High Court on Saturday quashed two notifications, issued last year by the Delhi Government, relating to revision of minimum wages for all classes of workmen in all scheduled employments by calling it “completely flawed”.

“The constitution of the committee was completely flawed and its advice was not based on relevant material and suffers from non-application of mind,” the bench said while setting aside the Delhi government notification setting up the advisory panel on minimum wages.

“The government’s decision based on such advice is in violation of the statutory provision, principles of natural justice, denies fair representation to the employers as well as the employees… in fact it is even without any effort to gather relevant material and information,” the bench had said.
