DG SCOPE ADVOCATES SOCIAL SECURITY OF LABOUR FORCES PARTICULARLY INFORMAL LABOUR FORCES
New Delhi: While speaking in a Seminar on the occasion of Labour Day, Dr. U.D. Choubey, Director General, SCOPE strongly advocated for social security of labour forces particularly informal labour forces and for those in the slum clusters. He suggested that Skill Development Centres should be opened in each of such slum cluster to improve the economic conditions and general living standards of such downtrodden people.
Dr. Choubey also expressed that such a Skill Development Centre should be integrated with small and tiny production centres for several small products which should be marketed through a supply-chain management by government/NGOs and industry. Resources for Skill Development Centres should be mobilized through government funding both Centre and State governments, NGOs, industries and people at large.
