Uttar Pradesh Government exempted all labor laws but three. With all the migrant labors returning back to the state and economic slowdown due to Coronavirus pandemic. They have been introduced as ‘Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labour Laws Ordinance, 2020’. The laws that have been exempted are Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976; Employee Compensation Act, 1923; Building and Other Construction Workers Act, 1996.

What has come up as a surprise though is the request made by the Chief Ministers of four other states; Punjab, Karnataka, Harayana and Gujarat, to not airlift the migrant workers since they form a big part of their respective state economies.

Yogi Government though promises employment to all the workers returning back home with great difficulties after lockdown so as to prevent them from migrating again. UP being highly populated see the largest population of migrant workers all over India. To prevent this from happening in a future free from the fear of COVID-19 there are steps the state government has planned. Multinational giants like FEDx, Adobe have been invited to set their offices in the state.

Apart from that laborers are being brought back home and a committee has been set up for representation of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. The government plans on creating around 15 lakh jobs from the aforementioned department post lockdown.

With the change in labour laws and new policies being introduced, Uttar Pradesh government plans on generating employment to stop people from migrating and contribute in the growth of the state. But with economic slowdown and with zero percent growth rate for the financial year 2021, it would be interesting to see how they reach the finishing line.
