Call for `user friendly' contract norms

Our Bureau

New Delhi , Dec. 17

EXPERTS have called for an attitudinal change towards contract labour, adding that while the Government should introduce "user-friendly" contract regulations, companies should also offer benefits including insurance cover and preferential treatment to contract labourers while hiring, as compared to fresh applicants.

At a seminar organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Mr M.M. Pallam Raju, Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, said, "We must address the issue of insuring a person, by way of provident funds or insurance policies." He called for making these changes in the corporate labour clauses.

Meanwhile, CII has prepared a draft code for the industry recommending that contract labour must not be exploited and should be utilised for specialised jobs only, and not for regular production.
