An advisory has been issued to all the State Government

Many of the State Governments like Rajasthan, Kerala, Punjab, Tamilnadu and Tripura  have included domestic workers in the schedule of the Minimum Wages Act and the domestic worker are therefore entitled to file cases before the concerned authorities in case of any grievance in this regard.  The registration of the placement agencies is a State subject.

An advisory has been issued to all the State Government requesting them to take steps for formulation of a policy at their own level for regulating these placement agencies. Moreover, meetings have been held on 6/12/2017 & 12/2/2018 at Shillong and Kolkata respectively where representatives of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, ILO, representatives of the State Governments and other stakeholders had participated to discuss the matter.
