NEW DELHI: In the 46th annual labour conference that concluded on Tuesday, the only issue that could be reached consensus was reduction in the ceiling on the number of employees in an establishm­ent eligible to be covered under the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisati­on (EPFO) from 20 to 10, a move that is expected to bring another 50 lakh employees under the EPF. On other contentiou­s issues the stakeholde­rs — trade unions, employers and the government—decided to continue with tripartite talks.
