Employers Organisations in India-Structure of Central Bodies
Structure of Central Bodies K C Alexander Employers' organisations in India broadly cluster around the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and the All-India Organisation of Employers (AlOE), on the one hand, and around the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and the Employers' Federation of India (EFI), on the other. This paper attempts a description of the organisational structure of the two central organisations of employers, viz, AlOE and EFI The description shows that both these apex employers' organisations are not organised in a way as to render service to their members in the field of industrial relations. They do not have well organised secretariats or specialists. They are organised in such a way as only to elicit response from members to various measures taken by the government in the field of industrial relations, and to participate as the representatives of Indian employers in the various industrial relations bodies functioning at the national and international levels.
