This proposed amendment to the IE(SO)Central Rules,1946 defines the term " Fixed Term Employment " through its newly inserted sub paragraph (da), inter alia, categorically mentioning the statutory rights available to such FTE employees in its proviso (a) and (b).
The effects of this amendment, in my opinion, are that -
(a) Not only the hours of work but also the gross wages of the FTC employees should remain on par with the permanent employees during the entire period of FTC as allowances have also been included in the clause (a) to the proviso. Therefore, the employer can not stick to the remuneration clause of FTC whenever upward revisions of the components of the wage structure of the permanent workmen are effected.
(b) An inference is rendered possible by virtue of the clause (b) to the new proviso (da) that terminal benefit like gratuity should also be calculated and disbursed to FTC employees proportionately even the tenure of the fixed term contract falls below the qualifying period of service specified in the concerned statute.
Comments are solicited.

Dear Members,

It is a beneficial provision to be inserted in the Industrial Standing Orders for both the employer and employee works under FTC. The insertion of this provision enables the FTC employee to get terminal benefits. It doesn't mean the employer can keep FTC on perennial nature of work. The Objects and reasons are meaningful.
