Committees For Two Major Issues In Nasik Industries

As the standstill over the recovery of Labour Cess prolongs, the Ambad Industries & Manufacturers' Association (AIMA) is planning to send a committee of its office-bearers to meet the state labor minister Hasan Mushrief in the next week to sort out the issue.

Industrial associations have been condemning the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) of recovering Labour Cess wrongly, counting from industries registered under the Labor Act. Although AIMA and Nasik Industries & Manufacturers' Association (NIMA) elevating the issue on numerous occasions at the Zilla Udyog Mitra (ZUM) meeting of the issue has been far from settled.

AIMA president Suresh Mali said that the way MIDC is recovering Labour Cess is entirely incorrect. Companies under the Factory Act have been excluded, but MIDC recovers Cess in blanket fashion. The labor department has explained that companies under the Factory Act are not applicable to pay Cess. They are now planning to meet the state labour minister next week to settle the issue.

On the issue of recovering the Cess, the former district collector P Velarasu, had instructed an examination, but no action had been taken.

It has been decided by Deputy Labour Commissioner to set up a special industrial peace coordination committee to bridge the gap between industrial associations and Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU). Following the industrial conflict due to the attack by workers on two corporate officials from the Everest Industries Ltd (EIL) the decision has been taken.

To pass up incidents like what happened with EIL officials, in future and create a peaceful trade environment in Nasik's industrial areas, they have decided to set up a special Industrial Peace Co-ordination Committee. The aim behind setting up the committee is to develop good relations between the industries and workers.
