A Short Term Course on Industrial Relation, Make in India & Skill India- Issues and Challenges will be held between 27-31, May 2018 by Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law, IIT Kharagpur.
The vision of ‘Make in India’ promises to make the country a manufacturing hub and to employ adequately skilled workforce in different manufacturing industries. The policies to attract investment and to train the workforce to meet the demands of the industries need to be aligned with the vision laid out by the Government of India.
Laws relating to industrial relations will play a vital role in ensuring success of the vision as the archaic labour laws which are considered an impediment to output growth and employment generation in the labour intensive manufacturing sector. Both the central government and the state governments are conferred with the jurisdiction to realign the labour laws so that the capital and labour gets equal attention in the implementation of ‘Make in India’.
On the one hand, the Government of India has proposed a comprehensive change in the labour and industrial laws of the country, some of the state governments have already
brought in the change to attract industry in their territory. Other than labour reforms, making its young demography job-ready is equally important for the success of Make in India. Inadequateness of skills erodes the competitiveness of an economy and affects productivity.
On utilizing human capital, India is a best example of ‘scarcity amongst plenty’. There is a growing mismatch between the requirements of the industry and skilled manpower. The much required emphasis on skill development will give necessary flexibility to employers as well as to employees. The employer will have necessary leeway to recruit as when situation warrants and the employee will have a better prospect of jobs across the industry.
