In this article the usefulness to India of membership of the I.L.O. is examined. It stresses the importance of the basic principles such as freedom of association, freedom of labour, and primacy of social objectives to which the I.L.O. and its members are committed and India's essential involvement with them in both their national and international aspects. It discusses the utility of international technical assistance and the changes needed to bring the I.L.O. more closely in contact with grassroots problems. Finally it shows that, while India needs the I.L.O., the I.L.O. needs India "as the great crucible in which its basic principles must meet their severest test".
