32.28 As stated earlier, the ILO has so far adopted 132 Recommendations. Of these, 5 relating to Indigenous Workers or Social Policy in Dependent Territories are not applicable to India. Another 16 are such that their provisions have either become out-dated or have no relevance at present. Of the remaining 111, we have fully implemented 31 (Annexure II), one is under examination and 66 are at different stages of implementation. The remaining 13 are considered to be not practicable for implementation at present. Among the 66 Recommendations at different stages of implementation, the important ones are : Lead Poisoning (Women and Children), Labour Inspection (Health Services), Hours of Work (Inland Navigation, Hotels, Theatres, Hospitals, Sea, etc.), Minimum Wage Fixing Machinery (Agriculture), Employment Policy, Conditions of Employment of Young Persons (Underground Work). The 13 Recommendations which are not considered practicable of implementation at present relate to Unemployment and Unemployment Provision, Hours of work (Fishing), Unemployment Insurance (Seamen), Social Insurance and Holidays with Pay (Agriculture), Minimum Age (Family Undertakings and Underground Work), Social Security and Medical Care for Dependents (Seafarers), Employment Injury Benefits and Invalidity, Old Age and Survivors' Benefits.
