The country has the distinction of having some of the most comprehensive labour laws in the world, even while having one of the largest fractions of the working population is unprotected and under privileged. Labour legislations are protecting the interest of the labour and promoting the welfare of labour community in India. Modern states are welfare state; their motto is to achieve the happiness of workers. Labourers are pillars of production system. Without labourer we can't produce a single article in the economy. Providing basic facilities for workers is an obligatory duty of the state and enjoying the basic facilities of workers are fundamental rights of the labourer provided for in the Indian constitution. Labour legislation has grown up as one of the most important social institutions in India.
