Occupational health programs will be pursued aggressively

Yet to Start

No progress has been made with regard to amendments in the Factories Act, Mines Act or such relevant laws that govern the health of the employees at work. No legislation exists for the people employed by unorganised sector, which employs 83% of the total labours, despite it being a recommendation according to the National Policy on Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), 2009.

No new research institutes has been set up under BJP government. The budget head for research and training for Directorate General of Factory Advice Service and Labour Institutes (DDFASLI), the nodal agency to implement OSH programmes, has increased marginally from  Rs.11.8 crore in 2014-15 to Rs.12.5 crore in 2015-16.
