In further reference to my mail,I have come across an important newspaper clipping appeared in yesterday’s Hindustan Times.(copy attached)
The Ministry of Labour & Employment is in process to launch an unified web portal as platform for reporting inspections, submission of statutory returns, redressal of grievances etc. in order to fulfill the Govt’s promise to review the outdated labour laws as promised in their election manifesto. In their first such step, they have issued an office memorandum, the copy of which you have already attached with your mail dated 18th June 2014.

I am coming up with the following post after a very long time.
In fact I am too busy in various project activities in addition to EHS responsibilities.
However I would like to inform all the members that I was invited and have attended the inaugural function of 3 days conference of Chief Inspector of Factories. The Honerable Labour Minister of Maharashtra has inaugurated the same.
The Ministry of labour and DGFASLI have invited suggestions and Comments over the proposed changes in Factories Act as the forum is open for public hearing.
If you have any suggestions / Comments you can post them to the DGFASLI web site. In addition you can also share the same on this forum, hence I can take them up with the DGFASLI and Director DISH Maharashtra.
I am going to suggest to increase the limit of 48 Hours leave in case of a reportable accident to one week. (Although not proposed in the current amendments)
This is the opportunity for all of us to contribute.
Thanks & Regards,
Ministry of Department of Labor and Employment.
The proposal of 2014 amendment is good but before that need to enhance the total departments accruded in the current environment.
The acts were very old, Kindly collect all the departments existing and segregate the labor departments ie define what exactly the labor term defines.
Well, all working for paid either hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, half yearly, yearly, 5 years.... etc will be considered as labor as per labor department but needs segregation based on various factors including payments made to them.
This clearly brings down the differentiation and then accordingly proposals can be made to them.
Making vague amendments is nothing adding few more facilities or removing to the age old labor statistics which doesn't resolve the issue but still complicates the problems.
Distinguish clearly the sectors based on duration and wage for all the labors provided upon approvals from the various heads upon their department meetings and approvals.
Meanwhile will still go through the amendments made.
I want to share an important newspaper clipping with the members, which appeared in Economic Times dated June 26, 2014. The Govt is proposing to have a general overall review of labour laws thereby encouraging the employers to hire more number of employees without having to comply with the labour laws requirements.Another important issue relates amendment in the Employee's Provident Funds Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 proposing to reduce the coverage ceiling from TWENTY persons to TEN at par with ESI Act.
A copy of the news clipping is attached herwith for the information of the members.
