India: The Ease of Compliance to Maintain Registers under the Various Labour Laws Rules, 2017 has been notified.

The Ease of Compliance Rules prescribe the following consolidated registers that are to be maintained by employers: (a) Employee Register; (b) Wage Register; (c) Register of Loans and Recoveries; (d) Attendance Register; and (e) Register of Rest/Leave/Leave Wages (to be maintained under the Mines Act, 1952, Sales Promotion Employees (Conditions of Service) Act, 1976 and Working Journalists and Other Newspaper Employees (Conditions of Service) and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1955). This is a welcome step from the Government as not only would we save paper from the perspective of the environment, India would be viewed as a country where compliance of laws is manageable and not cumbersome, therefore, having a direct impact on the ease of doing business in the country.
