Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
The Report falls into six main divisions. Conditions of employment and work in the factory industries are discussed first (Chapters 11 to VII). Four chapters follow on similar questions in relation to mines, railways and other forms of industrial activity (Chapters VIII to XI). This completes the review of working conditions in industry, and we pass to the standard of life of the industrial worker (Chapters XII to XV). The next group of chapters is devoted to general questions related mainly to the industrial worker, namely, workmen's compensation, trade unions and trade disputes (Chapters XVI to XVIII). We then turn to the plantations and deal in four chapters with the work and life of plantation workers (Chapters XIX to XXII). After discussing certain special questions relating to Burma, we deal in turn with statistics, general administration and the constitution in relation to labour (Chapters XXIII to XXV).
