AGARTALA, April 1 (TIWN): Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) gathered to burn or tear up copies of the four new labour codes on April 1 as a part of their agitation against the four laws that subsumed 29 laws.

The union launched a protest on Thursday to demand the withdrawal of the four codes, which were passed by Parliament in 2019 and 2020 and are expected to be implemented soon. They also demanded the repeal of the agriculture laws being protested against by farmers.

Major Relief ! Govt defers labour codes implementation

Employees' take home pay, companies’ PF liability to remain same for now. The four labour codes will not come into effect from April 1 as States are yet to finalise the relevant rules, which means that there will be no change in take home pay of employees and provident fund liability of companies for now.

Once the wages code comes into force, there will be significant changes in the way basic pay and provident fund of employees are calculated.  The labour ministry had envisaged implementing the four codes on industrial relations, wages, social security and occupational health safety & working conditions from April 1, 2021. The ministry had even finalised the rules under the four codes.
