Ministry of Labour and Employment Moves Forward for Implementation of Amended Apprentices Act



Ministry of Labour and Employment has taken quick steps to implement the amended Apprentices Act.

Comments can be sent by 2nd March, 2015.
The Government has taken several initiatives to revamp apprenticeship scheme. The Apprentices Act, 1961 has been amended and brought into effect from 22nd December, 2014. These amendments have been made with the objective of expanding the apprenticeship opportunities for youth. Non engineering graduates and diploma holders have been made eligible for apprenticeship. A portal is being setup to make all approvals transparent and time bound. Apprenticeship can be taken up in new occupations also. 
In light of the new amendments, the Apprenticeship Rules, 1992 are required to be framed/amended in consultation with the Central Apprenticeship Council-a statutory body under the Act. 
A Working Group has been constituted by Ministry of Labour and Employment for framing draft apprenticeship rules.
The Working Group in its meeting held on 12.1.2015 has prepared draft recommendations on the proposed amendments in Apprenticeship Rules, 1992 and guidelines of Third Party Agencies (TPA). Proposed amendments and Guidelines for TPA are uploaded at the web-sites of the Ministry of Labour & Employment and DGE&T.
Comments/suggestions are invited on these draft recommendations by 2nd  March, 2015 at ddgat-dget@nic.in. These comments/suggestions shall be considered by the Working Group before finalizing its recommendations. Thereafter Apprenticeship Rules will be framed in consultation with Central Apprenticeship Council.
