Dear Sandeep, It would have been better had you mentioned specifically about your confusion - whether it is about the applicability or interpretation of certain provisions etc.

Dear friend, going through BareActs make us confuse as to what they convey. Before going through the act it's good to know the object and purpose of any act.

Standing orders Act is to convey that Organisation mentioned under the said Act needs to maintain Standing orders which include the rules and regulations of that organisation. Like timings, role of each job, duties and responsibilities of a particular post and disciplinary action for disobedience etc.

Industrial Dispute Act mainly deals with disputes such as strikes and Lockouts. It conveys what is legal and illegal strike or lockout and its procedures. How to resolve dispute. What are unfair trade practices. About retrenchment of employee and layoff. When to approach works committee, arbitrator and Adjudication (labour court).

Trade union Act deals with how to form a trade union, its eligibility and purpose.

For further information visit Industrial employment (standing orders) act, 1946 - what is human resource ?.

The Acts & rules made there under are required to be studied. You have to buy these acts that have state rules that you are from. If you are from Southern states all central rules are applicable.
then you have to begin with preamble of each act & its applicability. Sections & rules made under them are to be considered together.
Following above will give you peripheral knowledge of the Acts.
Then there is jurisprudence - judgments of high courts / supreme court. You have to know the interpretations made.
It is easier said, but difficult to do. All the best!
