The Ministry of Labour and Employment has proposed the Code on Social Security, 2019, in which it has recognised ‘gig workers’ and ‘platform workers', the report said.
It is for the first time that the two terms are being used in the country's labour laws.
The development comes as the size of the number of workers in the gig economy is ballooning in the country, added the report.
