Dear All,
small confusion we are in construction industry, applicable for BOCW act, when can we register worker beneficiary, once he complete 90 days..? or once he joined work we have to get register under beneficiary..
Pls advice.

Dear Team,
Where there is Factory only doing particular product manufacturing with out any construction activity there BOCW is not applicable. As the Factory ACT comprise of all Regulation of Employment & Condition of Service.
As per BOCW act 90 days working is compulsory for eligibility of worker. Online registration can be done after completion of 90 days to get registered under BOCW.
The labour department in Maharashtra is collecting Rs. 85/- (registration fee + annual subscription as stated above) per person at the time of registration. In Maharashtra, this onetime fee is Rs. 25/- and monthly contribution by the beneficiary is Rs. 5/- i.e. Rs. 60/- per annum.

When lifting plan required.How much load capacity required for lift plan.Kindly anybody share me the details. Which act & rules says for making lift plan.

Dear Kalairaja-Vairavaraj,

You asked very technical question on the forum of legal or semi legal fraternity here.

As you know the lifting generally takes place at construction sites, shipyards, factories and other

industrial situations such as offloading with a forklift truck, containers at a warehouse or at a

commercial area. This subject falls under workplace safety, and in India there are few guidelines available, as far as labour laws are concerned, under Factory Act, Mine Act BOCW Act. Those guidelines are totally inadequate.

You may refer to Indian Standard BIS: 1992 in respect to cranes, lifting chains, chain pulley blocks etc. Lifting plan also has set international standards with guidelines under it by various councils.

You may check with manufacturer or may refer manual for handling operations of the respective machines.

Dr.S.Hariharan,

With due respect to you Sir, I would like to have some interaction with you on 90 days criteria for beneficiary registration under BOCW Act.

In Building Construction Industry the construction workers are not stagnant and migratory in nature. They keep on changing from one place to another, from one employer to another very frequently and thereby they are unable to complete, generally, 90 days with any employer.

If 90 days criteria is applied on the basis of working with particular employer then who will get the benefit under this Act and why the employer has to pay Cess which is very sizeable amount when no one or majority of his workers are not eligible for the benefit? The very purpose of the object of the Act is defeated, don't you feel so?

In my view, the 90 days criteria is about the employment in construction industry and not with a particular employer. It has to be that way only.

Your comments will be most welcome to bring clarity in the subject matter.
