IT employees of Karnataka succeed in forming trade union, and getting registration.

There are around 40 lakh employees working in the IT sector throughout the country. Like the workers of other sectors, the workers of IT sector are also facing serious problems like, heavy work load, insecurity of job, etc. However, forming of trade union has been totally prohibited in the IT sector. Under these circumstances, the IT employees of Karnataka State have finally succeeded in forming a trade union, and also getting certificate from the Labour Commission. Karnataka State IT / ITES Employees Union has got the certificate from the Labour Commission of Karnataka, under the Trade Union Act 1926, and Karnataka Trade Unions Regulations, 1958. It is significant to note that, Karnataka State is the largest IT hub of the country, with 15 lakh employees. The KITU is presently having only 250 members. But it is for sure that, in future, the trade union movement in the IT sector will grow from strength to strength, because of the existence of high a degree of exploitation in the IT sector. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the KITU.

Predatory pricing - Modi governments' double standard.

The Commerce Minister, Piyush Goyal, has thundered that the government is probing the predatory pricing of Amazon and Flipkart and that, appropriate action would be taken on violation if any. Piyush Goyal has added that, his ministry has received complaints from CAIT, a traders’ body. Well and good. However, when the Commerce Minister says that predatory pricing would not be allowed in the e-commerce segment, how is that predatory pricing was allowed in the telecom sector? Many private operators including Airtel, Idea and Vodafone had complained that Reliance Jio was practising predatory pricing. But, the Modi government did not listen to all these complaints. At the same time, the government unceremoniously sacked J.S. Deepak from the post of Secretary, Telecom, when he wrote letter to the TRAI, demanding action against the predatory pricing of Reliance Jio. How is that the government says that it would not allow predatory pricing in the e-commerce segment while allowing it in the telecom sector. Is this not a double standard of Modi government?
