BAN­DARU DAT­TA­TREYA’S MA­JOR ACHIEVE­MENT is still the in­tro­duc­tion of the Uni­ver­sal Ac­count Num­ber (UAN) in 2014 and con­nect­ing it to the Em­ploy­ees Prov­i­dent Fund Or­gan­i­sa­tion. UAN acts as an um­brella for the mul­ti­ple IDs al­lot­ted to an in­di­vid­ual and en­sures trans­par­ent and ef­fi­cient ser­vices. His min­istry has amended sev­eral laws like the Child Labour Amend­ment Act, Bonus Amend­ment Act, Ma­ter­nity Ben­e­fit Amend­ment Act, Em­ployee Com­pen­sa­tion Act and Pay­ment of Wages Amend­ment Act. Ad­min­is­tra­tive re­forms in­clude in­creas­ing min­i­mum wages across sec­tors and start­ing the Shram Su­vidha por­tal. In the works is dis­till­ing 44 labour laws into four labour codes. But em­ploy­ers are not pleased with the pace of labour re­forms.
