Introduction -

It was in 2002 that the Second National Commission on Labour had recommended consolidating the over 100 state and 40 central laws into four-five codes to bring in uniformity. The commission it its report had categorically stated that it found the existing legislations to be “complex, with archaic provisions and inconsistent definitions”.

Industry and businesses have been crying hoarse for years to streamline the complex web of labour laws to help them leverage the full potential of the market. Labour sector experts, meanwhile, had been batting for a better social security framework for workers.

It was since 2014 that the Modi government gave a fresh push to convert the existing 44 central labour laws into four codes. The process came for clearance before houses of parliament in 2019 and was finally cleared in last session of parliament.

With this, the process of codification of labour laws, has been cleared by Parliament and requires President’s assent and notification..
