Your project must be beyond the last date. While browsing the various posts, I realized this peculiare situation. I will be brief. This post may not help your project, but as general piece of information, it should be useful!
India is socialist democratic republic state. Every elected government of the country has as its bounden duty to secure upliftment of all citizen and to that extent the constitution provides for rules and regulations through a system of laws that would facilitate progress, redress of grievances and thereby would maintain peace and harmony in the society!
As regards "labour" while the State is committed to promote industrial growth through bilateral relations between employers and employees for mutually healthy existence, cooperation and progress, the state is NOT oblivious to the fact that despite best intentions and efforts, sometimes the issues between the parties may not get resolved at bilateral level and unless a way ro resolve is sanctified through the constitution of the country and the system of law, there would be impediments to progress and the expected peace and harmony may get vitiated.
Against this backdrop, it is simple to accept and apreciate that the State has reserved a a role of an "Umpire or a Referee" in the game of industrial relations in the country. Its provides all kinds of mechanisms to parties through law to resolve their own problems bilaterally and has further taken care to provide a quasi judicial/judicial system for determination of disputes.
Personally and professionally, one feels that this is an ideal system. Unfortunately, the experience shows that corrupt administration, adventurous unionism, sluggish judiciary and tight fisted managements have made a virtual mockery of the concept.
But the idea essentially is excellent in the State becoming an Umpire and to help parties become mature in resolving problems amongst themselves!
The role of the State in Indian Industrial Relations is that of an Umpire, Elder brother andwell-wisher! That the concerned parties have vitiated the golden thought is the country's misfortune!!!
