The new labour codes will promote harmonious industrial relations, higher productivity and generate more jobs, according to Santosh Kumar Gangwar, minister of state (independent charge) for labour and employment, who recently told a webinar the codes will establish a transparent, answerable and simple mechanism along with one registration, one license and less return filing.

The webinar was organised as part of the 86th annual general meeting of the All India Organisation of Employers (AIOE), an allied body of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

The minister said the codes will cover over 50 crore workers from the organized and unorganised sectors for minimum wages and social security. “Fixed term employment has been introduced and fixed term employee will get same service conditions as regular employees”, he was quoted as saying by an official release.

He emphasised that to discourage flash strike in any unit, provision of a 14-day notice has been introduced in the Industrial Relations Code.

To remove inspector raj from the system, he said, an inspector will now be called inspector-cum-facilitator. To bring in transparency, effectiveness and accountability, the ministry has also made provisions for setting up a web-based inspection system.

The government is also streamlining the process of compounding of offences to ensure early settlement of the cases, he added.
