KASSIA urges reforms in labour laws

Members of Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association (KASSIA) has submitted a memorandum to Labour Minister Parameshwar Naik seeking reforms in the existing labour laws.

Speaking at an interaction programme on new developments in labour laws, Naik said, “The State government is committed to development of industries in Karnataka. I will look into the memorandum and discuss with higher officials,”

The KASSIA Panel Chairman for ESI, PF and Labour, Boregowda said “There are around 200 labour laws in India, including 52 Central Acts, which are making an entrepreneur’s life miserable. With changing times, reforms should be initiated. Also, the need of the hour is providing training to unskilled workers in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). There are more than four lakh SMEs in the State.”

The members said that key reforms were needed specially in areas of Factories Act, Provident Fund and ESI Rules, Payment of Statutory fees, Industrial Dispute Act and Rules, Contract Labour Regulation and Abolition Act among others.
