    1. Please add more articles about Industrial disputes act like it’s origin/history, how to resolve disputes.
    2. Would request you to add industrial relation theories which gives better understanding to readers.
    3. Please make an article regarding recent amendments as GOI repealed 44 labour laws into 4 codes.
