Surprise inspections need to be carried out in various industrial units/shops especially in the areas like Khuda Lohora, Raipur Kalan, Raipur Khurd and Daria. This exercise should be carried out jointly by the Labour Department and Social Welfare Department. The concerned department will submit their report to the commission for taking further necessary action.
