The Delhi Government had issued a notification dated 3rd March 2017, wherein minimum wages for workmen in all scheduled employments were increased from Rs. 9,724/- to Rs. 13,350/- (unskilled category), Rs. 10,764 to Rs. 14,698/- (semi-skilled category) and Rs. 11,830 to Rs. 16,182 (skilled category).

RAI had filed a writ petition before the Delhi High Court challenging the legality of the notification. In it, RAI has contended that, while its members are not averse to and/or against a reasonable increase in minimum wages, the increase of the kind done by the Delhi Government is unprecedented, wholly arbitrary and seeks to put the whole retail industry, at least, so far as the State of Delhi is concerned, in serious jeopardy. The Delhi High Court had passed a stay order stating that no coercive steps be taken by the Delhi Government against the members of Retailers Association of India.
