NITI Ayog has asked the government for further reforms of labour laws and make them more flexible to make it easier to do business in the country. (Hindu-29-08-2017)
The government has already moved for dropping away many of the existing rules favouring the working class to satisfy the corporates. The newly proposed Labour Code has taken away many of the existing rights of the workers with regard to EPF, ESI etc as also registration of union. NITI Ayog is asking, probably, to take away even the balance rules on labour welfare.
This is atrocious. The working class will give suitable reply. The Maha Dharna at Delhi from 9th to 11th November 2017, called by the Central Trade Unions will be an opportunity to expose the anti-labour policy of the government.
