They have the same power as are vested in the Civil Court under the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 while trying a suit in matters like:

  1. enforcing the attendance of any person and examining him on oath,
  2. compelling the production of documents and material objects,
  3. issuing commissions for the examination of witnesses,

d.in respect of other such other matters as may be prescribed. An assessor or assessors may be appointed by the Conciliation Board, Labour Court, and Court of Inquiry, Industrial Tribunal or National Tribunal for advice having special knowledge on that matter. The Conciliation officer may enforce the attendance of any person for the examination of such person or call for and inspect the documents. The Conciliation Board, Labour Court, and Court of Inquiry, Industrial Tribunal or National Tribunal has the full power to determine to what extent, by whom and subject to what conditions costs are to be paid. Thus, it is seen that section 11 (1) has given wide power to the Conciliation Board, Labour Court, and Court of Inquiry, Industrial Tribunal or National Tribunal in the settlement of industrial disputes.
