Dear friends,

I am attaching copy of Industrial Disputes (Amendment) Act 2010 dated 18.8.2010 for your information. The Amendment Act provides for the following:

(i) amendment of the term “appropriate Government” defined under section 2(a) of the Act to amplify the existing definition;

(ii) enhancement of wage ceiling of a workman from one thousand six hundred rupees per month to ten thousand rupees per month under section 2(s) of the Act;

(iii) direct access for the workman to the Labour Court or Tribunal in case of disputes arising out of section 2A of the Act;

(iv) expanding the scope of qualifications of Presiding Officers of Labour Courts or Tribunals under sections 7 and 7A of the Act;

(v) establishment of Grievance Redressal Machinery in every Industrial establishment employing twenty or more workmen for the resolution of disputes arising out of individual grievances;

(vi) empowering the Labour Court or Tribunal to execute the awards, orders or settlements arrived at by Labour Court or Tribunal.

Thank you so much for posting such informations which are highly needed by students.
I have one question please some one provide me answer for that.
The results or decisions given by these authorities under ID Act,1947, are binding on both the parties for 1 year or the time given by appropriate Govt?
Do reply for this.

Thanx a lot. This is a marked change. The amendments have the following repercussions

1. By expanding the definition of apprpriate Government, the Central PSUs are back in the fold of Central Labour authorities

2. The amendment in sub clause (ii) of Section 2 (s) brings in clarity

3. The enhancement of wage ceiling limit for supervisors is long delayed as an amount of Rs. 1600 had lost relevance long back.

4. The eligibility for appointment as Presiding Officer in the labour Court has been expanded and hence it is also Ok.

5. Grievance Redressal Machinery has been made manadatory. Earlier also provision was made for constituting Grievance Settlement Authority but the amendment was never enforced.(Section 9-C) The present amendment has defined the the Grievance Settlement mechanism and hence it will help in bringing industrial peace.

As these amendments are to comre into force from a date to be notified what remains to be seen is when that date gets notified.

Thanx for sharing this information. KK
