Other Social Services

Before Independence, there was no regular Government Organization to look after the welfare of industrial workers and to settle industrial disputes and other connected labour problems. British paid little attention to social welfare and were mainly concerned with the maintenance of law and order, preservation of peace, and safety of the life and property of people. But after independence, the government introduced and implemented various measures for ameliorating the condition of the backward sections of the society, which were neglected or exploited and suffered from a number of disabilities for centuries together.
