This study was undertaken to examine the effects of shifting garment manufacturing units on labour dynamics and working environment. The study focused on garment units that have shifted in the last three years in NCR, Bangalore and Ludhiana. In order to understand the changes in labour dynamics factory managers as well as workers were interviewed at these three locations. Also, to have a sound understanding of the situation Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), Trade Unions and representatives of the government were interviewed.
