Training & Campus


The Institute undertakes various training programme for the trade union workers, organised and unorganised labour in rural and urban areas including child labour, women labour, agricultural labour. MGLI also undertakes training of the labour judiciary, officers of the Labour commissionerate, and of other departments employing labour in large numbers and public enterprises to provide them exposure to labour laws, labour welfare and labour relations etc- However, in organising the training programme, the Institute has its thrust on unorganised labour and rural labour. The objective is to promote their institutions and organisations so as to enable them to unite and reap the benefits of various welfare programmes and to equip them with the required knowledge, appropriate skills and the right attitude to ameliorate their working conditions.


Rural and Urban Camps are a part of ongoing efforts to reach out to distant rural and urban areas for creating awareness among the worker, particularly rural unorganised labourers who need encouragement to unite so that they can better demand their rights and ameliorate their living conditions. These camps provide information on relevant Labour laws, Minimum Wages Act and Welfare and Employment Generation Schemes implemented by the local authorities. Rural Labour Commissionerate, Gujarat Labour Welfare Board, Gandhinagar, are among the agencies who actively cooperate in organising rural camps. Efforts are also made to bring together officers of the Col1ectorate, District Panchayat, Forest Department, DRDA, Nationalised Banks and those directly concerned with employment generation programmes, implementation of labour laws and welfare schemes at these camps. Their presence in such camps help the officers to understand the problems of rural labourers by getting first hand information or the issues facing the labour while on the other hand enable rural poor to get guidance and delivery of services from Government Agencies.
