In step further towards Labour reforms, the government is considering fixing the proportion to contract workers that an organization can hire, this move may help it dilute opposition to labour reforms, but is sure to trigger stiff opposition from industry. The first draft of the proposal will be finalised soon, after which the government will kick-start consultation with key stack holder, including trade union and employers, a senior labour ministry official told ET. While it is still in the concept stage, the plan being considered is to limit the portion of contract workers in companies to 40% to 50% of the total work force, with a pay that is not less than the government - prescribed minimum wages.

In the same direction, there are other proposals to amend the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has been pushing key labour reforms to improve ease of doing business in India as well as enhance the working and living standards of workers.
