Hindustan Motors asked to submit revival package by Jun 19

Tags: News
The West Bengal government has asked the Hindustan Motors management to submit a detailed revival package for its closed ttarpara plant in the next two days.

"The management has been told to submit a revival package by June 19 and also how the company plans to clear the dues of workers," Labour Secretary Amol Roy Chowdhury told reporters after a tripartite meeting called by him.

The management side was represented by its CEO Moloy Chowdhury and a senior executive of the company.

All the six registered trade unions of the plant were also present at the tripartite.

About 2,400 workers have not been paid wages for the past six months, except for an advance of Rs 7,000 paid shortly after work was suspended on May 24 at the Uttarpara plant.

The plant was closed citing severe cash crunch due to poor sales of iconic Ambassador cars.
