One of the recommendations of the Task Force was that the skill land re-skill training program initiated by International Labour Organisation (ILO), Ministry of Labour & Employment and Delhi Government should be scaled up and replicated in different states of India in a phased manner.

The other major recommendations of the Task Force are as under:

(i) Extension of the welfare schemes to the domestic workers including health and Maternity benefit, Death and Disability benefit and old age benefits.

(ii) Domestic workers should be identified and registered by the State Labour Departments.

(iii) The domestic work should be included in the Central List of scheduled employment vide a notification under the Minimum Wages Act, 1948 for fixation and enforcement of minimum wages in respect of domestic workers. The State Government which have not fixed minimum wages for domestic work should fix minimum rates of wages for domestic workers.

(iv) Mandatory registration of all placement agencies and individuals providing placement, sourcing and recruitment service relating to domestic work under Shops and Establishment Act.

(v) Formulation of National Policy for the Domestic Workers.
