The Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said the state government is all set to usher major reforms in labour laws to create a industry friendly climate and also preserve the rights of the workers.

The chief minister hinted that a state would adopt its own model to strike a perfect balance between the industries and workers by getting rid of irritants that neither help industries nor workers.


The thrust of the new labour reforms would be to generate greater employment and also give more flexibility to the industries to help business flourish.

While equating growth with governance, Fadnavis speaking at IMC lauded the theories of two great economists Amartya Sen and Prof Jagdish Bhagwati to explain the significance of value and wealth creation that is integral for eradication of the poverty in India. When Sen emphasises on progress as a means for eradication of poverty and Bhagwati says growth creates an atmosphere that results in poverty alleviation it symbolises the concept of “value and wealth creation.”

According to Fadnavis, “ The government believes the value and wealth creation should ensure equal distribution and not confined to handful. The growth should be for upliftment of poor. It should generate greater employment and uplift the living standards of the people across country.”

The chief minister said, “When I emphasise on equal distribution of wealth it does not mean you snatch from one and give to another. I believe in creating equal opportunities for all.” Through “Make in Maharashtra” on the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Make in India, we are working on rapid development in all crucial sectors for the industrial growth and welfare of people.
