However, the number of regular civil employees in various Ministries as on 31st March, 2006 was estimated to be 3116337 as per the Census of Central Government Employees conducted by Directorate General of Employment and Training.

In the Central sphere, the Central Industrial Relations Machinery (CIRM) has been entrusted with the responsibility of enforcing the provisions of the Act and rules made thereunder, through Inspectors, Licensing Officers, Registering Officers and Appellate Authorities appointed under the Act.

The details of enforcement of the Act and number of contract workers covered by licenses in the Central sphere are as under:-







No. of Inspection conducted





No. of Irregularities detected





No. of Prosecutions launched





No. of convictions





No. of contract labourers covered by licenses
