Labour Administration Introduction - Industrial Relations Management

Features of Labour Administration in India

Labour Administration means public administration activities to translate the national labour policy into action. As we have said earlier, labour policy in India draws inspiration and strength partly from the ideas and declarations of important national leaders during the freedom struggle, partly from the debates in the Constituent Assembly, partly from the provisions of the Constitution, and partly from International Conventions and Recommendations.It has also been significantly influenced by the deliberations of the various sessions of the Indian Labour Conference and the recommendations of various National committees and Commissions, such as, the Royal Commission on Labour, the National Commission on Labour 1969, the National Commission on Rural Labour 1991, and the like. India has ratified a total of 39 Conventions adopted at different sessions of international Labour Organisation. These include conventions on hours of work unemployment, night work, minimum wages, weekly rest, workers compensation, forced labour, labour inspection, child labour, underground work and equal remuneration for men and women for work of a similar nature.

With growth in the dimensions and variety of industrial activity and changes in the agricultural sector, the task of labour administration has become increasingly difficult. It calls for comprehension, sensitivity, expedition and efficiency at every stage .To enable industries to be competitive in the present context, and at the right time to protect the rights of workers, labour administration has to provide an industrial relations system, which induces the adoption of a new mindset and at the same time to protect the rights of workers labour administration has to provide an industrial relations system.
