In a written reply to a question raised by a Opposition member, Labour Minister Amar Agrawal said, “mishaps occurred at 209 industrial places in which 215 labourers were killed while 139 injured during 2012 to 2014 (January 20).
Earlier replying to another query by senior Congress member Dhanendra Sahu over violations of Labour Act, Agrawal informed the House that as many as 9,802 cases were registered against different industries in past four years (from 2010 till January 2014) for violation of labour act and after investigation, cases were put up in the court for further proceedings.
However, Sahu further sought to know about how many cases were disposed and what action taken on them.
In his reply, Labour Minister Amar Agrawal said around 3,793 cases have been disposed and about 4.14 crore recovered from the guilty industries during this period.
Efforts are underway to bring labour court direct under the ambit of High Court in the state which will ensure speedy disposal of cases in this connection, the minister added.
