Patna High Court Disposed Of the Petition Challenging The Factories Act, 1948 Notification

National Campaign Committee for Eradication of Bonded Labour Vs State of Bihar, CWJC No. 7557 of 2020 | Patna High Court | Status: Disposed | |

The Government of Bihar published an order through Gazette Notification (No. No.-1/F1-103/2020, L.R.)-1218) through which various provisions relating to the weekly hours, daily hours, payment for over-time, interval for rest and a number of other provisions that protected the rights of workers under The Factories Act, 1948 were exempted.

This was a serious violation of the rights of workers and would lead to a significant increase in exploitation by companies. Shashwat filed a Public Interest Litigation against the notification, leading to the government to withdraw the notification.
