Description
Rapid globalization and heightened international competition now mean that labour market flexibility is an integral part of competitiveness and in this context contract workers have assumed importance. Contracting out the work has been wide spreading in India with Government as one of the biggest contract employer. Both the public and private sectors use the services of contractors in turn to get themselves workers and this exercise provides flexibility, efficient utilization of resources and improves their productivity while it boosts employment too. The Indian government promulgated the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 keeping in mind labour market conditions both before and after independence. The Act seeks not only to regulate contract labour but also provides for its abolition where the job is considered to be of perennial nature. But this Act, now in force for over five decades has not been satisfactorily enforced and has resultantly led to enormous litigation all around. Section 10 of the above Act deals with the provision of employment of contract labour. If the conditions prescribed in the said provision are satisfied, the appropriate Government may, in consultation with the Central Board or a State Board as the case may be, prohibit through notification in the Official Gazette, employment of contract labour in any process, operation or work in any establishment. It was made clear to the court that no notification relevant for the purpose of this case has been issued under section 10 of the Act, abolishing contract labour in such establishments. If that is the correct position, it follows that the contract labour, in question, does not stand abolished by issuance of appropriate notification under section 10 of the Act. If the conditions under section 10 are satisfied and a notification is issued abolishing the contract labour in the establishment of the type with which we are concerned in the case, there will be a legal consequence that flows from issuance of such notification in he abolition of such contract labour.
