The view that labour legislation in India was being enacted too fast and that it was cumbersome was expressed by Prof. Charles Orr., I.L.O. expert, who is in India at the invitation of the Central Government, to further the programme of workers' education in the country. He was speaking at a meeting of the Managing Committee of the Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Hyderabad on March 2. Prof. Orr said that in India there was so much labour legislation that neither the employers, nor the employees, nor the labour officers themselves clearly understood and knew them.

He said that he had not met many employers, but those whom he met were of the advanced type although there were some who were medieval in their conception of the dignity of labour. However, there were also a number of labour leaders who complained that the State employer units were worse than the private sector.
