According to Labour Minister Gopal Rai, the bill will be drafted after consulting various stakeholders. Suggestions and inputs would be appropriately examined, considered and incorporated in a strong and comprehensive legislation which Delhi government is very keen to bring out for the welfare of a large number of domestic workers. 

The proposed new law will include regulating the placement agencies and working conditions, mode of payment, welfare schemes, insurance, health, safety and education of children of domestic workers in a comprehensive manner. 

In this regard, Rai today convened a meeting which was attended by Swati Maliwal, Chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women, along with other members of the Commission, Labour Commissioner and other senior officers of the department. 

The Minister has also constituted a special committee to suggest the welfare measures, including working conditions of domestic workers. 

This committee is being headed by Vandana Kumari, Deputy Speaker Legislative Assembly and has members representing various NGOs working in domestic sector.
