Workers Right

 State Governments are the ‘appropriate Government’ for most of the big industrial houses in the private sector and hence, they do not fall within the ambit of the Central Government for implementation of Labour laws. However, adequate provisions exist under the various Labour laws to safeguard the interests of workers. Registration of Trade Unions is done by the Registrar of Trade Unions of respective State Governments. The Ministry has not received any complaints regarding violation of the Labour laws in Establishments or Industries falling under the Central Sphere.
The Ministry has not received any complaints of such strain on the workers nor any specific study has been conducted on this issue. However, adequate safeguards exist under various Labour Laws to protect the interests of workers and to take care of their health, safety and welfare.
This information was given by the Minister of Labour and Employment Shri Mallikarjun Kharge in reply in reply to a written question in the Lok Sabha today.
