LABOUR REFORMS IN INDIA. LABOUR REFORMS IN INDIA.
"Labour reforms in India, in the context of economic liberalization and globalisation, are much desired, but also feared and misinterpreted. The issue has been a touchy one ever since the liberalisation era began in the early 1990s. The Common Minimum Programme (CMP) of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) promises to carry out much awaited labour reforms in the Indian economy. The CMP has clearly indicated the need to streamline labour laws and enact Employment Guarantee Act. However, implementing these reforms would require much imagination and political will. The previous government had also proposed certain labour reforms but could not muster the courage to carry them out.
