  • Workers unorganized.

  • The relations among employers and employees - not definite.

The workers in unorganized sectors constitute 93% of total workforce in India. Their number is more than 40 crores. Our country is marching towards a superpower in the world. The lists of rich families and individuals in the world comprise of some Indians. The development of our nation in certain fields is appreciable. However, we cannot deny the fact which is depicted in a report ( a report by a National Commission for Studying the Works in Unorganized Sector - year 2007).

According to the report, about 86% workers are from unorganized sectors.

Amongst them, 79% persons get income below Rs. 20/- per day.

The workers from unorganized sectors are found in following groups :

  • Agricultural labourers

  • Domestic Workers

  • Construction Workers

The working condition and living conditions of such workers and their family members is worst. They are denied from basic human facilities. In this sense this is a deprived and depressed group in society.
