All persons working as Kamaiya labourers at the time of the commencement of the Act are ipso facto freed from that labour (art. 3). Loans do not have to be repaid (art. 5). The Act establishes Freed Kamaiya Rehabilitation and Monitoring Committee in districts prescribed by HMG and sets out their functions. In addition, Welfare Officers are to be designated to assist freed Kamiaya labourers (arts. 10-11). The HMG shall have the power to fix minimum wages for agricultural labourers (art. 13). Chapter 6 sets out the complaints, penalties and appeals.
