Abstract

Agricultural labour in India as such does not stand at par with industrial labour. Agriculture in India is not recognized as industry thus labourers working under harsh conditions are subject to different set of rules and regulations and most surprisingly a good number of their working conditions are not governed by any statutory regulation leaving them at the mercy of contractors and landlords. The need is not to segregate men and women agricultural labourers but to provide a distinct and effective legal regime that not only supports the mandates of welfare state but also fulfills the mandate of social security.
