About Rural Labour Commissionerate

Gujarat is the first and Only State in India to establish a separate Rural Labour Commissionerate to protect the rights as provided under various Labour Laws to the unorganized and unprotected rural workers of the State. The main function of the Commissionerate is to enforce the provisions of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948 in the employments of Agriculture and 13 other scheduled employments found within Gram Panchayat areas.

Moreover, since 2004, the officers under the Commissionerate are also declared as inspectors to enforce some of the provisions of the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, the Inter State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Condition of Services) Act, 1979 and the Equal Remuneration Act, 1979 in the employment of Agriculture and 13 scheduled employments within Gram Panchayat areas.

The Commissionerate is mainly responsible to ascertain as to whether the statutory minimum rates of wages are being paid by farmers to agricultural workers. In the cases of less wages, the inspectors try to pursue farmers to pay the wages @ more or equal to the minimum wages as declared by the State, through negotiations and try to resolve the labour disputes, if any, amicably and expeditiously.
