Indian Labour Laws and Garment Industry.....
Major Hurdle faced by Indian Apparel Industry ......Low Labor productivity and Indian Labour Laws...??????
Lack of discipline amongst labor employed in the Indian Apparel units is major reason for very low productivity and high cost of Indian garments. The same worker when works abroad produces 3-4 times due to the fear of losing job.
Inflexible labour laws and too much job security are harming the performance of apparel industry greatly dependent on the performance of its workforce. As a result, apparel manufacturers in India have been urging the government to relax the laws.
India's labour laws date back to the time when socialism appeared to be for eradicating India's poverty. But now in global scenario, productivity linked wage system and some amount of flexibility in laws would give tremendous boost to Indian Apparel Industry.
