Hi !!

The Government has provided the social security cover to most of the workers in the organized sector through the Employees Provident Fund Office and Employees. State Insurance Corporation within the legal framework. However, no such social security cover has been provided to the workers in the unorganized sector who constitute 92% of the total work force. The concept of Labour Welfare Fund was, therefore, evolved in order to extend a measure of social assistance to workers in the unorganized sector. Towards this end, following separate legislation have been

enacted by Parliament to set up five Welfare Funds to be administered by Ministry of Labour to provide housing, medical care, educational and recreational facilities to about 49 lakh beedi workers, 73,650 mine workers and 68,000 cine workers:-

1. The Mica Mines Labour Welfare Fund Act, 1946;

2. The Limestone and Dolomite Mines Labour Welfare Fund Act, 1972;

3. The Iron Ore Mines, Manganese Ore Mines and Chrome Ore Mines Labour

Welfare Fund Act, 1976;

4. The Beedi Workers Welfare Fund Act, 1976; and

5. The Cine Workers Welfare Fund Act,1981

According to this, welfare provided to employee ;


*Financial Assistance for minor diseases like Hernia, Appendectomy,

Ulcer, Gynecological diseases and prostrate diseases:

( Scheme was introduced on 13-12-2003)

*Financial assistance for purchase of Spectacles:

( Scheme was introduced on14-09-1984)

*Maternity Benefit Scheme for Female Workers:

( Scheme was introduced in 1988)

In addition to this, every State Govt. has labour welfare Act & board to provide welfare to employee.

eg. In Maharashtra, The Bombay welfare Fund Act 1953 is applicable to constitute a fund for welfare & provide benefits to employees
