This volume, in honour of Prof L.K. Deshpande, provides rich insights into the contemporary labour law reform debates in a comprehensive manner. Perhaps for the first time, it contains articles primarily from stakeholders in the industrial relations system, viz. representatives of trade unions and employers, business consultants, and [retired] government official in addition to a few academics. All these contributors bring on board rich but diverse perspectives, arising from their long-standing on-field experience, on the changes in and the proposed reforms to labour laws and policies. Thus, this volume is more than an academic read. In this sense, this volume seeks to fill in a critical void in the literature on the ongoing debate on labour law and governance reforms in India. It will hopefully prove to be a major contribution to enabling an understanding of the ongoing labour law and governance reforms and their possible impacts on the ease of doing business and also on workers’ rights.
