NEW DELHI: The four labour codes on wages, social security, industrial relations and occupation safety, health and working conditions are likely to be implemented by the next fiscal year as at least 13 states have pre-published draft rules on these laws, a senior official said.
The Centre has already finalised the rules under these codes and now states are required to frame regulations on their part as labour is a concurrent subject.
A senior official said that the four labour codes are likely to be implemented by the next fiscal year. “The four labour codes are likely to be implemented in the next financial year of 2022-23 as a large number of states have finalised draft rules on these. The Centre has completed the process of finalising the draft rules on these codes in February 2021. But since labour is a concurrent subject, the Centre wants the states to implement these as well in one go,” the official said.
