Kerala hartal latest news 2018 kerala hartal bandh call reasons timings

There is no hartal in Kerala on Monday 16 April 2018. Fake WhatsApp message is spreading in social media that Janakeeya hartal will be held on 16-4-2018. This message has created a lot of confusion among people who are looking to know whether any Kerala hartal is declared. As per latest information there is no hartal call by any political parties on this date.

On Monday 9 April 2018 there will be Kerala hartal by Dalit Aikya Vedhi. It will be from morning 6 am to evening 6 pm on 9-4-2018. All exms of Kerala, Kochi, Kannur, Calicut universities have been postponed. There are Intelligence reports that there is chance for problems during hartal. KSRTC, Private buses, shops .etc. has informed that it will conduct services as usual. Buses are running in first 2 hours of hartal.

Strike (Panimudakku) held in Kerala on Monday 2nd April 2018 by trade unions will be like a Kerala hartal. There will not be any vehicle strike (Vahana panimudakku). Because KSRTC staff unions and may other unions except BMS (Baharatiya Mazdoor Sangh) are taking part in this strike it will have effect of a hartal in Kerala. BMS which is BJP supporting trade union will keep away from protesting activities as decision to bring contract labour law is take by Central government under BJP. Private vehicles will not be affected by this 24 hours long strike held on 2-4-2018.

Let us see which all exams in Kerala has been postponed due to Kerala strike. All examinations of Kerala university, MG university (Mahatma Gandhi), CUSAT university, Calicut university, Kannur university, Theory exams of Kerala University of Health Sciences (Arogya university) on 2nd April 2018 has been postponed. Kerala PSC has announced that examinations scheduled to be conducted on 2-4-18 will not be changed or postponed. PSC exams on 2-4-2018 will be conducted without any change. There was a fake Whatsapp message that MG University 4th semester CBCSS exams on Tuesday, 3rd April has been changed and a complaint has been given to Cyber cell regarding it. Tourists or people on vacation trips in Kerala on Monday 2-4-2018 will be most affected. If you are traveling in a taxi or own car you will not be affected by this strike because it is not a hartal or bandh. But if you plan to depend on KSRTC buses or autos you will have to face difficulties due to this 24 hour strike.

Central government’s decision to bring contract labour rules into effect has created a feeling of job insecurity among employees all over India. Which all sectors of employees will be affected by new Contract labour law rule is being inquired by everyone. It will mainly affect labourers in factories, industries. When this new labour rule comes into effect recruitment can be done by employing staff for a specific contract period. It will prevent employees being recruited till they reached pension age. This new contract labor rue has many advantages and disadvantages. As employees are taken for a specific contract period it will help everyone to get job. Many opportunities will come for job seekers as there will be no permanent jobs.

A contract period ends within 1 or 3 years it will give opportunities to other job seekers without waiting for a vacancy till a person reaches pension age. Coordination Committee of Central Trade Unions in Kerala has decided to protest against this decision by BJP ruling Central government. Kerala trade unions like CITU, INTUC, AITUC, STU, HMS .etc. have joined this strike on 2-4-2018.

This new labour rule announced by Gazette notification on 16 March 2018 (16-3-2018) will bring an end to fixed term employment in India. All companies will be eligible to employ workers on contract for a fixed term, employees will not be given any termination notice and will not be given any notice period salary if this contract is terminated. It means that many rights that employees got through trade unions will come to an end. Amendment of Labour law to appoint staff on contract will bring an end to Trade unions as contract staff keep on changing in companies.

Keralathil ‘nale hartal undo’, ‘nale hartal ano’ ‘nale hartal pinvalicho’, hartal pinvalichu’ are common inquiries by people of Kerala as this is God’s own country for hartals and bandhs. All latest news updates on Kerala hartal will be updated. Is there any problems related to hartal happening today. What is condition of hartal in Kerala with latest news photos, videos will be updated. Most exams in schools, colleges, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala University, PSC exams, interviews.etc.  scheduled to be conducted on Kerala hartal dates will be postponed.

Information regarding postponing of exams, classes .etc. has to be confirmed by everyone with their respected areas. We cannot guarantee or take responsibility regarding any dates and whether it will be postponed unless official declaration is received.

People of Kerala start their day by asking ‘Is there any hartal tomorrow ?’ or ‘Is there a Hartal today?’. It’s because hartals have become a routine procedure in life of an average Keralite.
