Government Upgrading Norms For The Greater Good And Organised Objective

“Driving Synergies, Simplification and Harmonization”

With the new codes, the primary motive is to cover more than 50 Crore 
Workers from Organized, Un-Organized and Self-Employment Sector with a 
humanistic approach, to provide them Social Security, to maintain a cordial 
Industrial Relation through occupational safety and healthy working 
conditions, ensuring financial and employment stability, redefining many 
“terms” to avoid confusion and conflict of interest, to ease conditions of doing 
business, to enhance fines and imprisonment terms for violators of the Code, 
to ensure better compliance and re-designating various enforcement.
