ONGC appeal against employees’ regularisation quashed

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal of ONGC against the order of the Gauhati High Court which asked the public sector oil exploration company to regularise its casual employees employed in Cachar in late 1990’s.
The high court had ruled that the members of the ONGC Contractual Workers Union were indeed direct employees of the corporation and not those of the contractors. The industrial tribunal had found that there was no contractor appointed by ONGC. It used to supervise and allot work to individual workers.
It paid the wages directly to the workers. It also took disciplinary action against some workers. All these showed that there was master and servant relationship between ONGC and the members of the union
