LABOUR-Displaced Textile Workers Kotwal Report

LABOUR 'Displaced' Textile Workers: Kotwal Report Gurbir Singh THE recently-released Manohar Kotwal Report on the effects of the 1982 Bombay textile strike on workers, while providing a good statistical exposure, is a damp squib as regards remedial measures. The terms of reference of the Kotwal Committee were limited to identifying the numbers of workers 'displaced' on account of dismissals, retirement, deaths, etc, from the Bombay milts during the strike, and the extent of unpaid dues owed to such workers. The short report, however, also sketchily goes into some of the ailments of the textile industry and briefly records the submissions of unions and mangement on various strike- related issues.
