Department History

Labour Force is growing in Azad Jammu & Kashmir and keeping in view, Government of the State of AJ&K felt the need to create a department that would be solely responsible for workers prosperity through implementation of Labour laws in AJ&K. It was further decided that the department shall also promote welfare and protect the rights of labour force and workmen through enforcement of labour laws and Government policies. Resultantly, Labour Welfare Weights & Measures Department was formed on 8th April 2014.
