High relevance news

Low Relevance news

No important line in news apart from this one.

Cess collected for construction workers too low for their welfare

A PIL has been filed in SC saying that the cess collected from construction companies, which is meant to pay for such workers’ welfare, is abysmally low

Important point: According to the Building and Other Construction Workers’ Welfare Cess Act, 1996, a 1% cess is to be levied and collected on all types of construction activities, whether by government, PSUs or private players

Has very fewer chances of coming in the exam but now you don’t know what can so keep this point somewhere in mind!
