April 2, 2022

Commenting on the current 10-minute food delivery issue, NLSIU’s Centre for Labour Studies recently reflected on the unreasonable pressure that a 10-minute delivery might put on delivery partners. The article titled ‘Race to the bottom for gig workers’ in the op-ed pages of The Hindu, is authored by Visiting Fellow Mohan Mani and Independent Researcher Sachin Tiwari, who are associated with the Centre for Labour Studies.

In December 2021, the Centre had published another report on wages and work conditions in platform work.
