The Forum of Free Enterprise is a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A.D Shroff and was established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum publishes booklets to further its objects. The following booklet titled, “Industrial Relations,” was published in 1979 and was co-authored by Naval Tata and P.C Mehta. Naval Tata in the article titled, “Industrial Relations,” emphasized the enactment of legislation in the favour of laborers and focused on its implementation as a means of prevention for the dislocation of trade and industries. The pivot was given to the Industrial Relations Bill 1978. It was noted the government through new provisions was compelled to trespass in the area of vested interests of certain trade unions. He highlighted the importance of the role played by trade unions and employers’ organizations in the sphere of industrial relations and in the means needed for fostering economic growth. P.C Mehta in, “Democracy and Labour movement,” highlighted Congress’ objectives for India as an establishment of a socialistic pattern of society. The focus was given on the revolution to be brought about by economic growth. The author emphasized the indiscipline, inequality existing among workers, how the concept of collective bargaining was turned to coercive bargaining, and the much-needed approach for establishing democratic stands then. The booklet included a report from, “The Financial Express,” of 1979, of a note from the then Finance Minister who voiced opposition to the grant of bonus to railwaymen and other employees amid the budgetary deficit in India then.
