Uttar Pradesh Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board

The people employed for building and other construction activities includes a class of unorganized labourers who are forced to work under conditions of unsafe environment, unstable employment, work without defined time limit, scarcity of definite and grateful means making their conditions weak and miserable. The statistics in regard to accident rates among workers, deployment of duties among them and incorporation of developmental activities was turning a difficult task due to scarcity of appropriate legal attributes. In lieu of safety associated with workmen class, their welfare and other conditions required for proper management, a need to establish central organization was felt. In order to streamline measures aimed at welfare and other terms and conditions, security and health of workers, Government Building and other construction workers (employment and condition of service) Act has been created in 1996.
