The Committee of Experts on the Application of the Conventions and Recommendations (CEACR) is an ILO body that supervises the application of ratified Conventions in a process of dialogue with governments and their reporting responsibilities.
In 2012 CEACR commented on the application of two ILO Conventions in relation to the reporting by the Government of India and in both cases the Committee expresses the need for further information on implementation and more up-to-date statistical data to be provided by the Government. In the case of the supervision on Convention 111, the CEACR is identifying numerous challenges in the implementation process in India.
CEACR comments to the implementation of Convention no. 111 in India, (ratified by India in 1960).
The 2012 CEACR comments included a number of observations and requests to the Government of India (GoI), in relation to the articles 1, 2 and 3 of the Convention, concerning “Discrimination based on social origin”. The observations and requests of the Committee point to subjects of quotas and reservations systems, backlogs in the criminal system and indications of high impunity rates. Additional observations and requests apply to the practices of Manual Scavenging and the existing legislation on this subject as well as on the issue of equality of opportunity and treatment of women and men.
