    (a) Code does not lead to betterment of the lives of the workers.
    (b) Code deals with Social Security only & for that too, there are several missing points.
    (c) Provisions in this Code are of lower level than already existing in some states. Thus its introduction will be a retrograde step.
    (d) Future of PF and ESI organizations is unclear.
