More reforms in labour laws in Budget session

In a bid to accelerate reforms in the labour sector, the Modi government may come out with some more changes in labour laws.

 The labour ministry is all set to bring amendments in the law governing the Employees Provident Organization (EPFO) and the repeal of remaining sections of Industrial Dispute Act. Though, one more bill, Small Factories Act, is ready for tabling, but the government is yet to decide on it.

The proposed bill for repealing the Industrial Disputes (Amendment) Act, 1956 provides for doing with the provision that makes state laws overriding on central laws. It also provides for continuation of proceedings in a tribunal which were started before amendments in Industrial Dispute Act, 1947, were made.

The concept not circulated by the ministry has said that the laws are “no more relevant”. It has said that PC Jain Commission appointed by Law Ministry had recommended its repealing. The consultations on EPFO amendments are over and the Bill is being readied to be tabled in Parliament. The changes will give more control over the organization.
