Simranjeet Singh in conversation with The Economic Times said that "The new labour codes have decriminalized multiple penal provisions barring the provisions concerning grievous offenses." He further added “This balance makes an attempt at reducing fear of imprisonment for employers while protecting the rights of the workers. ”However, government officials will continue to have a significant say even under the new act.
