Indian Officials in the ILO, 1919-c 1947

This study sheds light on the services of a distinguished line of Indian officials in the International Labour Organisation, particularly before Independence. Their brilliant academic backgrounds, their roles in the organisation and their contributions are analysed. The issues of India's disproportionately large financial contributions to the ilo and meagre Indian representation in the secretariat are also briefly examined. In all, the ilo and India were well served by these outstanding Indian officials though they operated in difficult times with the shadow of a colonial government always looming over them.
