About The Book

The underprivileged labour force in India, as distinct from the organised and unionised sector of labour in industry, constitutes a widely exploited section of the society. What are the conditions of their working environment? What legal provisions have been made for safeguarding their welfare? What are the special measures to be additionally undertaken to cater to specific requirements of each category of labour? These and other questions are dealt by the author in this book. The book contains twenty one chapters, six appendices, a bibliography, and an index. The book will be useful to all those interested in managing welfare of  workers in the unorgainsed sector.
