The Ministry of Labour & Employment had reconstituted the “Group responsible for the Labour Code on Social Security & Welfare” two years ago, as per the Letter No. Z-13025/ 13/ 2015 L.R Cell dated 12.03.2015 of the MOL&E.
This group, called as the Drafting Team, had been working for the past two years and has brought out the present ‘draft Labour Code’ which was put in public domain on 16.03.2017 by the MOL&E.
The CPFC had also deputed an RPFC to be part of the Drafting Team “on full time basis for completing the exercise”.
Was the CPFC aware of the what work was being done by the Drafting Team during the period of two years? Was he ever briefed by his RPFO about the direction in which the Drafting Team was going about its work, to finish off the EPFO ?
