INSPECTION FOR COMPLIANCE WITH LABOUR LAWS IN INDIAN INDUSTRIES

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an announcement concerning inspections for compliance with labour laws. Prime Minister’s announcement satisfies the needs of industry captains who think “measures will work only if states join in”.

The inspections would be limited because the PM's plan encompasses only inspectors under the central labour commissioner working through its regional offices. Only main sectors like central PSUs and major ports, mines and oil fields, banking and insurance companies, air-transport services, and industries like cement, petroleum, and telecommunication will be nearly well covered.

The lack of inspections will still huge in factories. State labour department regulates bulk of the workforce with an estimated 8,000 inspectors, which is far lower given that the entire country is concerned. Last year 2.6 lakh (260.000) irregularities were found in 1.3 crore (which is 13.000.000) people working in factories. 

Informal investmentsin especially in sectors like Manufacturing, construction, wholesale and retail trade, transportation and storage, employs more than 70% of both rural and urban workforce, and account for at least 50% of India’s GDP. More than 80% of informal workers are beyond the pale of labour laws
