The system of employment of migrant labour is not only a complex one but also an exploitative mostly prevalent in Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar etc. The practice of recruitment of migrant labour from different parts of various states is pathetic one, that is, they are recruited through contractors or agents, called Thekedar or Sardar. Such workmen are mostly engaged in large construction works. This system lends it to various abuses. Though the Sardars at the time of recruitment promise that wages calculated at piece -rate would be settled every month, the promise is seldom kept.
