Technological Development along with Multi-Skilled Workers will Enhance Overall Productivity, Says Shri Mallikarjun Kharge


Technological Development along with Multi-Skilled Workers will Enhance Overall Productivity, Says Shri Mallikarjun Kharge at the Meeting of Parliamentary Consultative Committee of the Ministry of Labour & Employment

   A meeting of the Consultative Committee attached to the Ministry of Labour & Employment was held under the chairmanship of Shri Mallikarjun Kharge, Union Minister of Labour and Employment in New Delhi on Wednesday 29th June 2011. The agenda for discussion was the functioning of the Central Board for Workers Education, Nagpur. The Central Board for Workers Education CBWE which came into existence in 1958 has travelled a long journey of more than 50 years and has at present 6 Zonal Directorates, 50 Regional Directorates and 9 Sub Regional Centres spread across the length & breadth of the Country. The aim of the Board is to create awareness among the workforce of organized, unorganized and rural sectors for their effective participation in the socio-economic development of the nation.

   The Minister of Labour and Employment Shri Mallikarjun Kharge speaking at the Parliamentary Consultative Committee Meeting said that Managements have also been benefiting by workers education programmes because changes in the attitude of workers to adapt themselves to modern technology, new work culture and development of constructive attitude, help them in the accomplishment of their goals in the changing scenario.

   He said that the CBWE programmes have initiated emphasis on workers participation in management because creation of suitable working environment has become inevitable. The CBWE is promoting the efforts of the Labour Ministry to create an atmosphere wherein workers and Managements feel closer to each other and work in unison for the development of sustainable enterprises. Managements should, therefore, encourage their workers to suggest improvements so that they will realize their responsibility.

   Productivity is another area of concern. Labour productivity cannot be improved without excellent use of labour as an input. Cooperation and commitment of workers with sharpened skills enhance the productivity. Technological development along with multi skilled workers will bring the positive result of overall productivity.

   In last two decades, HIV/AIDS epidemic has continued to intensify and expand across the world. The age group of 15-49 years is most affected which means active working population is the worst affected. Therefore, creation of knowledge and awareness is highly required to control this disease. Shri Mallikarjun Kharge said that CBWE has become the key partner of the ILO in arresting this menace. One more area of concern is of Child Labour and CBWE is conducting various training programmes for child labourers and for their parents to create awareness in regard to elimination of child labour. The Government of India has launched Mahatma Gandhi National Employment Guarantee Act with a commitment of minimum hundred days’ gainful employment to one person of a family. Started with 100 districts of the country, now it has extended to 619 districts. CBWE has taken up the task of propagating the scheme through awareness training programmes for the rural workers across the whole country. Several welfare schemes announced by Government of India and State Governments for socio economic upliftment of informal sector workers have been taken care of by CBWE through organizing rural awareness camps so that workers may reap the benefits of the schemes.

   For the country’s development, gender sensitization and woman empowerment is a must and CBWE is engaged in the movement of awareness generation for equal pay, payment of minimum wages, absence of discrimination, maternity benefits and equal working conditions for woman employees. With implementation of newer legislations and development schemes by United Progressive Alliance UPA Government at the centre for well being of the working class, the role of CBWE is bound to increase for informal and non formal workers education to make workers aware about their rights and duties. Efforts are being made to strengthen the CBWE to play vital role in the socio-economic development of working population and achieve the ultimate goal of National Development.

   The Secretary Labour & Employment Shri P. C. Chaturvedi in his concluding remarks drew the attention of the Members to the future thrust areas of CBWE along with its present challenges in the field of Workers Education. The Members of the Parliament from Lok Sabha who attended the meeting included Shri Anandrao Vithoba Adsul, Sh. R. K. Singh Patel, Sh. Gurudas Das Gupta, Sh. Ram Sunder Das, Sh. Danapal Venugopal, Sh. N. Peethambara Kurup, and Sh. Badri Ram and Sh. Mohammed Amin and Sh. Mangla Kisan, MPs from Rajya Sabha.

   Members of Parliament offered important suggestions, which included, the syllabi of Training Programmes of CBWE must include the topics like Constitution of India, Fundamental Rights of Workers, Minimum Wages, Equal Remuneration, Right to organize, Trade Union Act, Payment of Wages, ESI Act, EPF Act etc. In all the training programmes of CBWE the workers must be made aware and conscious about their legal rights. The rural and unorganized sector workers should be given a proper Identity Card as Workers, which will help them to find the work and avoid harassment by various agencies mainly in places which are far away from their native places. The awareness programmes of CBWE should be conducted more in numbers mainly in rural areas of U.P., Bihar, Rajasthan etc. as most of the rural and unorganized workers of our country belong to these states. The SC/ST Workers should also be given priority by CBWE as their numbers in organized sector employment is far from satisfactory. The Contractual workers of various industrial sectors are being exploited and they are not getting even their minimum wages and other benefits meant for them. Thus, the contractual workers should also be made aware about their rights and how to be organized and take the benefits of various welfare schemes of Central and State Governments.

Govt. likely to increase interest rate on PPF


   The government is likely to raise returns on small savings schemes such as public provident fund (PPF) over the next two-three months with sharpest rise of up to 70 basis points likely in post office deposits.

   Based on present calculations PPF, the most popular scheme, would see interest rate rise by 20 basis points (100 basis points = one percentage point) to 8.2% annually instead of 8% now while senior citizens can hope to get 8.95%

   The only scheme which is going be hit would be the five-year Senior Citizen's Savings Scheme (SCSS), where the return is expected to decline by 30 basis points.

   A government panel headed by Reserve Bank of India deputy governor Shyamala Gopinath submitted its report to finance minister Pranab Mukherjee . The panel has called for several changes in the structure of small savings schemes and has recommended abolition of Kisan Vikas Patra as well as raising the investment limit in the PPF scheme to Rs 100,000 from the present Rs 70,000.

   In case of two other schemes – the Monthly Income Scheme ( MIS ) and the National Savings Certificate (NSC) – the rates would remain the same but their tenure would be cut from six years to five.

   The rates would be applicable if the new formula, which is linked to the three-year average rate on comparable government bond, is applicable from July 1.

   A senior government official told TOI that in case of schemes such as NSC, the interest rate on offer would be the one applicable in the year of purchase. So, if you invest Rs 1 lakh in NSC now, you would get 8% but it could rise to, say, 8.5% for those purchased in the next financial year.

   The interest rate payable on PPF would, however, be fixed at the start of every financial year and the entire corpus would be entitled to the same rate, as is the case with your money lying with the Employees Provident Fund Organisation.

   Though the government would take a hit of around Rs 650 crore due to the revamp – which also involves resetting interest rates for state governments that use bulk of the proceeds – the finance ministry is keen to move to the new mechanism at the earliest. "It's more transparent and offers benefits of the rising interest rate environment," said an official.

   With most states already on board, the potential risk of derailment is unlikely, the official said. Besides, the government does not expect any political opposition as the returns are rising for almost all schemes.

   The official said the panel had consulted all stakeholders and the panel included the finance secretaries of West Bengal and Maharashtra. "The recommendations will be discussed in the government and we can implement it in the next 2-3 months," said the official, who did not wish to be identified. Recommendations of a similar panel had to be forwarded to the National Development Council (NDC) as some states had protested against the proposed changes.

   "The present recommendations benefit investors. We are also cutting down on agents' commission. Overall, the recommendations are balanced and links the interest rates to market rates. We don't anticipate any opposition," the official said.

How to change schemes in NPS


   The New Pension Scheme (NPS) offers subscribers the option of investing their funds in three types of schemes: Fund E, which invests a maximum of 50% in equity; Fund G, which invests in bonds of central and state governments, and Fund C, which invests in corporate bonds. Investors can also go for auto choice, in which allocation to the three asset classes is done automatically in a predefined proportion based on the investor's age.

   To manage the contributions, subscribers can choose a fund manager from the six appointed by the PFRDA. Investors have the option to change their scheme choices, which could be related to either the allocation of funds among various asset classes or to the fund manager. The change in scheme preference has to be registered by submitting the request in the prescribed format.

Form: The change request form can be downloaded from tinyurl.com/3pvn3oh. It is also available at all registered points of presence service providers (POP-SP).
