FACT SHEET 6
|Enforced with effect from 1.3.1964; vide S.O. 189, dated 1.3.1964, see Gazette of India, Pt.II, Section 3(ii). Enforced in Sikkim w.e.f. 1.9.1984 vide Notification No.529 (E), dated 22.7.1983.|
Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons.-There are at present certain enactments like the Motor Vehicles Act, 1939 and the Factories Act, 1948, which cover certain sections of motor transport workers and certain aspects of their conditions of employment. There is, however, no independent legislation applicable to motor transport workers as a whole or for regulating the various aspects of their conditions of employment, work and wages. It is considered desirable to have a separate legislative measure for motor transport workers which would cover matters like medical facilities, welfare facilities, hours of work, spread-over, rest periods, overtime, annual leave with pay, etc., on the analogy of similar enactments for workers in factories, mines and plantations. The present Bill is intended to achieve this object.|
