NEW DELHI- Industrial Relations Tighter Government Control

NEW DELHI Industrial Relations; Tighter Government Control THE attempt by the Union Labour Minister, R K Khadilkar, to revive the industrial truce agreement of November 1962 in the context of the present emergency evidently came a little too late. When the representatives of labour and employers were called to a conference on December 16 to consider the proposal, active fighting was already over. Still at that time patriotic feelings were running high and the idea of an industrial truce was stated to have been accepted at least in principle. It was decided that "concrete problems" connected with the operation of the truce would be worked out in the next few weeks and final decisions taken on that basis. But by the time the issue came up for discussion with the labour leaders again on January 10 the situation had entirely changed and, even though the Prime Minister herself took a hand in the matter, the idea of a three-year truce appeared to have lost much of its force. So it was decided to direct effort once again to evolving an effective and acceptable machinery for the regulation of industrial relations so as to minimise industrial strife.
