GHAZIABAD MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION organized an awareness program on APPLICABILITY of LABOUR LAWS (with latest amendments) on Saturday, 21st April 2018 from 4.30 to 7.00 PM at Kapil Mohan Hall, IMT, Raj Nagar, Ghaziabad


The Facilitator was Mr. K N Agarwal, Former Asstt. Labour Commissioner, Govt. of U P.


Mr. Agarwal explained the applicability of each of the important Labour Laws that are applicable to any organization where persons are employed, for regulating their terms and conditions of employment and to ensure their health, safety and welfare etc.


He further explained that Labour Laws are a subject matter of concurrent list and therefore, both, State and the Central Government have enacted Labour legislation. There are a plethora of laws in this matter but all of them would not be applicable to each organization. It has been experienced that in some cases, the enforcement agencies approach the organizations even though the law is not applicable to it and that the owner or the person responsible is also not sure about the applicability of the law.


The lecture session was followed by a panel discussion on the subject. The panel comprised of:

Mr. K N Agarwal, Former Asstt. Labour Commissioner (the speaker);

Dr. Rashmi Agarwal, Professor of Labour Laws, IMT, Ghaziabad; &

Dr. Surendra Kumar Kansal, Director, Poysha Packaging & Wares Pvt. Ltd..


The session was very well attended by about 40 persons, most of whom were the industry representatives.
