45th Session of the Standing Labour Committee - Agenda Points for the 45th Indian Labour Conference


45th Session of the Standing Labour Committee 
Finalizes Agenda for the 45th Indian Labour Conference
           
‘Rapid economic growth’ coupled with ‘Safeguarding the rights of the workers’ will lay the foundation of our country’s development in a sustained manner. Shri Mallikarjun Kharge, Minister of Labour and Employment, emphasized this while delivering his presidential address at the 45thsession of Standing Labour Committee here today at Vigyan Bhawan. He laid stress on the proactive measures to improve the situation of the workers in general and those of the vulnerable sections of the society in particular. According to him the concept of ‘Dignity of human labour’ and ‘Safeguarding the interest of our work-force’ should be the cornerstone of all our policies. He stated that active labour market policies and speedy Social Security coverage are the two basic requirements of our present day society. Shri Kharge said that one of the contemporary challenges is employment generation. In this regard MGNREGA has been able to provide income support and has contributed towards checking distress migration. Other employment generation programmes like National Rural Livelihood Mission, Swarna Jayanti Shahari Rozgar Yojna and Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme etc. have also contributed a lot towards providing livelihood security.
Labour and Employment Minister also spoke about various legislative steps taken by his Ministry for Labour Welfare in recent years. These are:-
·         Increase of wage ceiling in the Payment of Wages Act, 1936;
·         Amendments in the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 for speedy reconciliation and settlement of disputes;
·         Provision of reservation for OBC in the Apprenticeship Act, 1961;
·         Increase in Wage Ceiling in the Bonus Act;
·         Increase of Medical Bonus under the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961;
·         Increase in gratuity ceiling to Rs.10 Lakh.

Shri Kharge further stated that the process of amendment in the Mines Act, 1952 is in progress. Cabinet has approved amendments in the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, which will facilitate ratification of ILO Convention 138 and 182. He said that 94 % of our workforce is in the unorganized sector. This area requires relentless efforts and innovative indigenous solutions. Strategies for bringing improvement in this area should aim at improving Labour Legislation and Labour Administration. According to him extending organizational support and augmenting bargaining power of the unorganized workers should be a priority.

According to Labour and Employment Minister India faces a mammoth challenge in the area of skill training. Because of Government’s intense efforts we have been able to increase the number of  ITIs to more than 10,000 and improved the infrastructure of existing ITIs. Modular Employable Skill is one of the ambitious schemes of Ministry to address the employment needs of the unorganized sector. Government has been able to develop 1,422 short term courses for providing skills in a short span to a large number of people. Shri Kharge stated that 27 States/UTs are implementing RSBY and more than 3.35 crore smart cards have been issued. More than 46.75 lakh persons have availed hospitalization facilities.

Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Shri K.

On promotion, the executive would be entitled to the benefit of one notional increment (3%) on his Basic Pay + Stagnation Increment, if any, and the pay would be fixed (rounded off to the next Rs.10), in the promoted scale. However, on promotion the pay so fixed should not exceed the maximum of the scale to which the executive  is promoted. In case his pay so arrived at is less than the minimum of the promoted
scale, he/she would be entitled to get the minimum of the scale. Further, DPE has recently issued detailed O.M. dated 14.12.2012 on various pay related issues of executives of CPSEs. A copy of O.M. dated 14.12.2012 is available on DPE website www.dep.nic.in

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Restrictions on top level executives of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) joining private commercial undertakings after retirement.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 15th May, 2008 (copy enclosed) on the subject mentioned above.

2. The Government has reviewed the position regarding time limit of 30 days for concerned administrative Ministry / Department to communicate the decision on the application(s) seeking permission to accept any appointment/post after retirement in view of the fact that in many cases, a functional Director/CMD would have worked in more than one CPSE during the last five years preceding the retirement and therefore the concerned administrative Ministry / Department would require more than 30 days to consider all aspects/factors as brought out in OM. dated 15th May, 2008 before arriving at a final decision on such applications. It has accordingly been decided to revise Para 7 of the DPE O.M. dated 15th May, 2008 laying down time limits to read as follows.
