Indian Railways, Army among world's biggest employers: Study

New Delhi: Two Indian organisations - Army and Railways - are among the world's biggest employers, together employing a whopping 2.7 million people, said a report.

Though it is often said that Indian Railways is the largest employer in the world, but it seems it is not. The organisation is ranked at the eighth place in the list of world's biggest employers. Immediately after Indian Railways in the 8th rank with 1.4 million staff is the Indian Armed Forces with 1.3 million people.


According to a research published by the World Economic Forum, the US Department of Defense is the world's biggest employer which claims over 3.2 million employees on its roster.

Second is People's Liberation Army (the Chinese military) with 2.3 million, and in third is the US supermarket giant Walmart with 2.1 million workers, the report said, adding that "...175,000 of Walmart's staff work for UK supermarket chain, Asda".

McDonald's is the 4th biggest employer with 1.9 million employees, however, as the majority of its restaurants are franchises, this figure falls to 4,20,000 when they are excluded, the report said.

UK's National Health Service was ranked at the 5th place, with 1.7 million employees, followed by state-run China National Petroleum Corporation with 1.6 million.

Another Chinese company, the State Grid Corporation of China was ranked 7th with 1.5 million.

Hon Hai Precision Factory (better known as the electronics manufacturer Foxconn) comes in at 10th place with 1.2 million people.

Centre to bring in new labour codes in wages and other areas to protect workers

The Union Labour Ministry proposes to come out with four labour codes in the areas of wages, industrial relations, social security and working conditions to strengthen safety and social security of workers.
                                            
The Union Labour Ministry proposes to come out with four labour codes in the areas of wages, industrial relations, social security and working conditions to strengthen safety and social security of workers.

"We are going to bring four labour codes. Labour Code is very, very important. It is going to play a major role. One will be for wages. There is complication in wages being paid. We would like to bring all wages under one code.

"Second is Industrial Relation Code. We will amalgamate all laws. Third is social security code and fourth one is working conditions and safety. Safety and security of the workers will be strengthened under these codes," Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya said today.

He was addressing a regional conference of state Labour Ministers and officials from southern states here.

The Government is holding tri-partite meetings with representatives of trade unions, employers and Central and State governments on a host of labour-related issues.

Noting that there are a number of laws concerning labour and employment, Dattatreya said his Ministry is doing "simplification, rationalisation and amalgamation" of legislations to promote productivity and welfare of workers.

The NDA Government is bringing in different initiatives like Universal Account Number (UAN), skill development, among others, for the benefit of workers, the Minister maintained.


He emphasised the need for skill development for workmen and the Centre's initiative towards the endeavour. Speaking on the occasion, Kerala Labour Minister Shibu Baby John said violation of labour laws is rampant in India.

Referring to the issue involving Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade, who was accused of underpaying her maid in the US, he said developed countries try to protect workers.

"In developed countries, the laws are so strict, every employee or person, has to be paid minimum wages. So, they even went to the extent of prosecuting a diplomat. I am not going into the veracity of this," John said.

"Here, in the country, there is blatant violation of minimum wages. So, when we say that labour is the problem for all that, actually what is happening in India is there is more violation of labour laws than what is being discussed." Telangana Labour Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy and his Karnataka counterpart Parameshwara Naik spoke about labour welfare schemes being implemented by their States.

Why India Post could become e-commerce’s most potent delivery partner

What makes India Post, seen by many as a relic of a bygone era, so attractive to these online portals? India Post's network of post offices in India is incomparable. None of the private courier or logistics firms can even come close say experts and e-commerce firms. "India Post has an unmatched network that is critical for the growth of e-commerce in India," says Ashish Chitravanshi, Vice President of operations at Snapdeal. A view echoed by Amazon.in. "Through India Post's extensive network, Amazon India is able to service over 19,000 pin-codes through 140,000 post-offices across all 35 states and union territories in India," says Samuel Thomas, Director of transportation at Amazon India. This network covers about 25,000 pin codes, while even large private courier companies like DTDC reach only about 10,000.

India Post and e-commerce

Sharadamani Amma, an 87-year-old great grandmother, remembers a time when the sight of mail runners would cause a great deal of excitement in the small Kerala village she grew up in. The appearance of these postal employees, who carried mail between post offices on foot, meant a letter or money order or, god forbid, a telegram—a sure sign of ill news.
But those days are long gone. The postmen are no longer held in high regard in most of the country, and few in the current generation would have even stepped into a post office, at least in urban India.
New age e-commerce companies want to change this. The likes of Amazon and Snapdeal already have pilot projects running with India Post, while newspaper reports suggest that Flipkart is set to follow suit.
But what makes India Post, seen by many as a relic of a bygone era, so attractive to these online portals?

Unbeatable network

India Post’s network of post offices in India is incomparable. None of the private courier or logistics firms can even come close say experts and e-commerce firms. “India Post has an unmatched network that is critical for the growth of e-commerce in India,” says Ashish Chitravanshi, Vice President of operations at Snapdeal. A view echoed by Amazon.in. “Through India Post’s extensive network, Amazon India is able to service over 19,000 pin-codes through 140,000 post-offices across all 35 states and union territories in India,” says Samuel Thomas, Director of transportation at Amazon India.

This network covers about 25,000 pin codes, while even large private courier companies like DTDC reach only about 10,000.
The scale of India’s Postal Network

Rural depth

While the pan India network is impressive, it is India Post’s rural depth that gives it an edge. “No one can reach rural areas like India Post,” says Manish Saigal, Managing Director of advisory services firm Alvarez & Marsal India. Manish says India Post’s importance will only increase when non-metro India’s contribution to e-commerce sales surpasses that of metro India. “The top 20 cities contribute 60% in value terms right now. The pendulum will shift the other way pretty soon,” adds Manish.
The pendulum has already swung the other way for some e-tailers. Over 70% of orders for Snapdeal are from smaller cities and towns, according to Snapdeal’s VP-Operations Ashish. “The growing popularity of online shopping in these non-metro centers presents a unique set of logistical challenges like spread out population, high km/delivery factor and high cost of setting up delivery infrastructure,” explains Ashish.
India-Post’s-North-East-Network

Advantage India Post
It is not just the e-commerce companies that stand to gain from a partnership with India Post. The revenue potential for India Post is quite high.
The central government agency is already handling over 1.5 lakh e-commerce deliveries a day, according to industry estimates, making India Post one of the largest delivery partners for the industry. The Business Development and Marketing Directorate of India Post, which handles delivery of parcels like those of e-commerce companies, earned revenue of Rs 1961.76 crore between April and December last year.
“A lot of people dismiss India Post but they are doing mind-boggling work on the ground for e-commerce already,” says Manish.

An advertisement put out by India Post showed the department has handled Rs 500 crore of cash-on-delivery (CoD) in the financial year 2014-15.
Revenue Earnings copy
cod
However, Alvarez & Marsal’s Manish says India Post needs to do more in terms of technology adoption. This is especially important for CoD. India Post does have years of experience handling and delivering cash, in the form of money orders. However, CoD unlike money order requires postmen and women to collect cash and not hand over cash. E-commerce companies also expect this cash to be remitted into their accounts daily and further expect transparent and instant system updates.
This technology integration between India Post and e-commerce companies is beginning to happen. “We have integrated Amazon and Postal systems to electronically enable information sharing,” says Amazon India’s Samuel.
There are examples globally of national postal departments taking advantage of the growth of online retail. Ankur Bisen, senior Vice President at retail advisory firm Technopak, cites the examples of Deutsche Post (Germany) and Royal Mail (UK). “Both these companies were state sponsored mail carriers and realised the diminishing importance of postage. Both of them have successfully re-modelled themselves to suit the emerging e-commerce needs,” says Ankur. An AFP report in March stated that Deutsche Post’s e-commerce parcel division saw its revenues rise by 2.6% to reach 15.7 billion euros (Rs 1.11 lakh crore) in FY 2014.
“If they can marry India Post’s local knowledge and network with technology, they can become unbeatable. But they need to do this fast,” says Manish.
If this succeeds, then Sharadamani Amma’s great granddaughter Mythili will also soon wait with bated breath for the postman to call at her Bengaluru flat.
