Abstract

"> In earlier days women were confining to the four walls of houses and led a protected life. In the present modern society they have come out of the four walls and take part in all sorts of activities competing successfully with men. This has become possible because of the increase in women’s education social and occupational mobility, legal safeguard, industrialization and urbanization. It has been proved globally that women have been performing exceedingly well in various fields such as education, administration, politics, sports, medicine, aeronautics, trade and industries and social work. Thus the workers in the unorganised sector in general are outside the purview of protective Labour Laws and Trade Union Organizations. In this context the condition of women who are exploited even in organized sector, is worse in the unorganised sector. Problems of unorganised workers in India have been increasing recently. A vast majority of India’s working population is in the unorganised sector and is consequently unprotected. In India, informal sector or the unorganised sector plays a vital role in the employment and production front. Around 94 percent work force including agriculture, are in the unorganised of informal sector, whereas just 6 percent are in the organized of formal sector. According to Central Statistical Organization, “the unorganised sector includes all those un-incorporated enterprises, the household industries which are not regulated by any legislation and which do not maintain annual accounts or balance sheets.
