No step was taken to improve the condition of workers from past 18 years but later government take initiative
In a country like India which is having abundant manpower can develop its economy if human resource is properly utilized but are we utilising the human resource?
In India, there are more than 50 crore workers including both organised and unorganised sector and around 90% of the workers belong to unorganised sector. These workers were supposed to get the benefit of the Labour Law of the Country. But they were not getting much benefit. Their condition remains the same.
In 2002, Second National Commission of Labour submitted its report regarding the multiplicity of Labour Laws in India. They made a recommendation that multiple Labour laws should be codified into 4 or 5 Labour Codes at Central Level. But no serious initiative was taken regarding the same from 2004 to 2014.
Later, when Bhartiya Janta Party came into power, Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi took decisions. He believes in “Sabka saath sabka vikas aur sabka Vishwas”. So, discussions were held by the Ministry of Labour and Employment. They organized 9 tripartite discussions held during 2015 to 2019. In that discussion all Central Trade Unions, Employers’ Association and representatives of the State Government were invited. Thereafter the four bulls were examined by parliamentary standing committee and then the recommendation was given to Government.
