Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
We have dealt in a later chapter with the question of housing. Here we need only refer to one phase to which our attention was drawn, namely, that of eviction. The scarcity of housing adds to the difficulties facing railways when it becomes necessary to serve notices of eviction upon workers who have been discharged or who have ceased attending to their duties. Under the Indian Railways Act, an administration can apply to a magistrate, but we are informed that it is only on rare occasions that recourse has been had to legal proceedings for eviction of a railway servant. We feel sure this power will be resorted to only after giving due regard to all the circumstances.
