Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
The subjects discussed by us are by no means the only ones on which information is required. In almost every direction the field is practically unexplored. So far as the standard of living is concerned, only part of the work is done when particulars of income and expenditure have been secured. Connected with this there is a host of questions awaiting investigation, such as the incidence of sickness, migration, absenteeism, industrial fatigue, etc. The scientific study of the human problems of industry has scarcely begun in India, and the loss which has arisen from this neglect is evident.
