Govt approves Model Shop & Establishment Act
30
Jun '16
The Union Cabinet has cleared the Model Shops and Establishments act, which proposes to allow malls, cinema halls, restaurants and other retailing establishments to remain open on all days.

The Model Shops and Establishment (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Bill, 2016, will now be sent to States/UTs to enable them to modify their individual Acts, if they so desire either by adopting the said Bill as it is or after modifying its provisions as per their requirements, according to an official statement.

This Bill was finalised after detailed deliberations and discussions with public through internet and with employees/labour representatives, employers' associations/federations and State Governments through tripartite consultative process.

The Model Bill would bring about uniformity in the legislative provisions, making it easier for all the States to adopt it and thereby ensuring uniform working conditions across the country and facilitate the ease of doing business and generate employment opportunities, the statement said.

At present, states have their own legislation which regulates shops and establishments like their closing and opening times, holidays and working shifts of women.

The Bill will cover only establishments employing ten or more workers except manufacturing units.

It provides for freedom to operate 365 days in a year and opening/closing time of establishment.

Women will be permitted during night shift, if the provision of shelter, rest room ladies toilet, adequate protection of their dignity and transportation etc. exists. (SH)
