Everything you need to know about the Maharashtra BOCW Board.

The Building and Other Constructions Employees (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1996, also known as the “BOCW Act,” is a social welfare law implemented by the Indian government to ensure a safe and healthy working environment for construction workers.

This legislation regulates the employment and working conditions of construction workers in buildings and other structures, with the goal of providing welfare benefits to them. The scope of the BOCW Act in India is broad since, in countries like India, where the construction sector is rapidly growing, there are many workers employed in this area, and the existence of this legislation is essential to protect their interests.

Construction workers are one of India’s most exposed groups of employees, with a large percentage of them working in the informal sector. Almost every state in India has established a Building and Other Construction Employees Welfare Board, which is in charge of developing various welfare packages for construction workers. The Maharashtra Building & Other Construction Workers Welfare Board, or Mahabocw, is the name of this board in Maharashtra.

Through enacting a variety of projects, the Mahabocw board strives to improve the quality of life of these workers. It also has an official website where workers can register with the Board, apply for benefit programs, and access a variety of services.
