This paper aims at answering the question: Should labour laws be relaxed or reformed during the lockdown? Since time immemorial the term 'exploitation' and 'victimization' has been considered as the other name of a labourer in India. These people had to face a lot of torture in the hands of their employers. However after Independence, the scenario somewhat changed as the central legislature decided to come up with new pieces of enactments which can give these people their lost rights. Hence in this write up the different rights and privileges which are available to a labourer in India at present are put together under different sub headings. In the recent time of COVID-19 pandemic however, the some states have suspended several important labour laws which have thrown the workmen at the mercy and sweet-will of the employers. The research deals with the Migrant workers who were thrown out without a properly devised plan for their return at the declaration of the Nation wide lockdown. This paper contains a discussion on the difference between the organised and unorganised sector of employment, Finally aims at understanding India’s international obligations towards the International Labour Conventions and how the same impacts the current scenario of labour reforms in India.
