Regional labour institute (RLI) Nagpur came into existence in 1971 as a branch of Late Narayan MeghajiLokhande Maharashtra Institute Of labour Studies (LNML MILS) to deliver the same proficiency to the future human resource, industrial relations, and personnel management professionals at the regional level.

It was a dream of our former Director to start a regional labour institute to develop human resource managers, personnel management professionals, and labour welfare officers by giving specific training in the field of labour laws and industrial relations which was the need of Vidharbha and Marathwada region. Due to the changing industrial scenario, our former Directors Dr. Vishnu Mhaitras and Dr. Sharad Sawant had taken the initiative to establish this institute had raised the fund to build the campus respectively.

Our former visionary deputy director Dr. Ramesh Navlakhe fought for a prominent location for the institute in the heart of Maharashtra’s sub-capital and it was his effort that the institute procured 5.5 acres of land near I.T Park, Nagpur.
