27Mr.Vice-Chairman, Sir, the Plantations Labour Bill, 2003, was introduced in the Rajya Sabha on/the 6th March, 2003/. Then, it was referred to a Joint Committee of both the House/ and this Joint Committee submitted its report in 2005.  Now, we are discussing this Bill today/ after six years of the submission of the report by the Joint Committee.  Hence, the Bill would not be able to/ deal with the present-day expectations of the workers of the plantations.  The original Act in regard to the (100) plantation labour, namely, the Act of 2001 itself provided various welfare measures for the plantation labour./ But unfortunately the planters NON-CHALANTLY violated all these provisions for welfare measures.

          The main question, therefore, is the question/ of implementation of the provisions of the Act.  Mere amendments will not improve the position.  There is no provision in the/present Bill also as to how these measures these provisions, can be implemented and what the Government is thinking in/ terms of implementing these provisions.  In most cases, even the Government officials who are deputed for the purpose of inspecting (200) the gardens, they themselves side with the planters.  If Government officers themselves side with the planters, where is the remedy?/ Hence, we should DEVISE ways and means and adopt measures so that the provisions which are made in the Act/ and the Bill, the present Bill, are implemented properly.

          Sir, the provisions in the present Bill fall for short of/ the expectations of the working population in the plantations.  In the present Bill, it has been suggested the ACREAGE/ of the plantations in regard to which this Act, will

be applied will be reduced to 5 HECTARES. But this (300) is also not sufficient, because under this also, the owners, the planters will take shelter and many of the plantations/ will still remain uncovered.  This should be further reduced to 2.5 hectares.  So far as compensation for house/collapse is concerned, it has been said here that if the occupant of a house is directly responsible for the/ collapse, he will not be entitled to COMPENSATION.  Under this provision, Sir, the employers will take shelter and deprive many workers of getting compensation.  Sir, it is known to everybody that the plantation industry is the biggest foreign exchange industry.
