The President of India signed a revised set of labour laws from Rajasthan into state law. The Rajasthan government has revised the Factories Act, the Industrial Disputes Act and the Contract Labour Act. The President used Article 254(2) of the Indian Constitution which has been rarely evoked—an article that permits state law that conflicts with federal law to override the latter if it obtains the assent of Head of the State. This reflects the regionalized labour policy reform adopted by the Centre to circumvent any national-level unionized protests, thereby averting initiation of any social dialogue and bargaining process.
