Ahead of state polls, Labour reforms put on hold

 The NDA Government may not implement Labour reforms any time soon due to upcoming state elections in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, setting back it’s push to improve the ease of doing business in the country.

 
As per the ‘The Economic Times’ report, government does not want to come out with any change that would lead to charges of pro-corporate policy-making. 
 
The Narendra Modi-led Government does not want to move ahead with any change that would lead to charges of pro-corporate policy-making. 
 
Change in the stand comes even after the Prime Minister indicated his government's resolve to come up with the labour codes in his Independence Day speech in 2015. 
 
The report said that while the labour ministry has finalised the codes on wages and industrial relations and work is in progressive stages on the codes on social security & welfare and on safety & working conditions, Centre is in slow mode with regard to this transformational change to labour laws.
