Uttar Pradesh (UP) is planning a policy to offer jobs to 20 lakh migrant workers expected to return to the state because of the lockdown, according to a state government statement issued after chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s meeting with officials. Officials have been asked to collect data from quarantine centres regarding skills of workers, the statement said.

Apart from new units, the workers will be recruited in existing businesses as well.

Workers will be provided with jobs, a guarantee of a minimum salary of ₹15,000, defined work hours and security, a news agency reported. Women workers will also be offered jobs through self-help groups.

This comes days after the state cabinet gave a go-ahead to a draft ordinance aimed at giving temporary relief to industries from few clauses of labour laws with conditions.

The state government exempted businesses from the purview of almost all the labour laws, including those related to settling industrial disputes, occupational safety, health and working conditions of workers, and those related to trade unions, contract workers, and migrant labourers, for the next three years.

Along with the readymade garment industry, a policy for perfumes, incense sticks, agricultural products, food packaging, cow-related rural products, flower-based products and compost and fertiliser business is being formulated by the government.
