“On the strained relationship between the IT sector and Labour Laws – The case of Karnataka and the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders)Act, 1946”
In the past few years India has witnessed the mushrooming of many Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in every nook and corner of our cities. These alien lands within state boundaries have been trumpeted for being mascots of ‘development’, more so for the IT sector than any other sectors. States in India are competing with each other to say, “My SEZs are bigger than yours”.
But beneath the glitter and gloss, there is a darker side to the story of SEZs.
August 24th & 25th saw Bangaloreans celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema braving heavy rains at the Suchitra Film Society’s auditorium in Banashankari. They were participating in the film festival by the same name organised by ITEC (IT/ITeS Employees Centre) Film Club, Suchitra and Necab Matinee (NSS Engineering College Alumni Bangalore).
