The proposed National Council deserves larger representation from a wider spectrum of the employers and employees throughout the nation permitted in the supreme body. It is, therefore, suggested that the draft Labour Code may be modified to facilitate inclusion of, at least, 15 representatives for employers and 15 for employees. Because, the proposed Code amalgamates so many government and government oriented-organisations, including the two major organisations, the ESIC and the EPFO, where ten representatives on either side were in the respective supreme governing bodies.
The parties in power at the Centre should not give the impression that they are afraid of facing the representatives of the people by reducing their representation in the proposed National Council. It is, therefore, proposed that the National Council may be made to have 15 employers’ representatives and 15 employees’ representatives.
