About 'Mahatma Gandhi Shram Sahyog Puraskar'

Era of globalization opened up Indian economy and we started facing global suppliers. With the background of the protectionist regime, our manufacturing cost remained higher and quality a shade below the average in most cases. Due to monopoly in many sectors, innovation and customer now had a choice collecting goods of low cost and better quality. This forced the industry with outdated technology and obsolete practices and industry was forced to go for downsizing, closure, disinvestment, merger, or acquisition. Both Management and Unions have, though late, learnt costly lessons and now there is more understanding to work as a team rather than fighting it out as "WE" AND "THEY". Many organizations have taken conscious steps to bridge the gap between Management and Union. This has led Mahatma Gandhi Labour Institute & CII to consider instituting an award in this field by evaluating performances of Managements and Union as a team.
