The source said the HM management had apprised the government of various concrete steps initiated giving the existing state of circumstances which has made the present operational structure at Uttarpara unviable.

"The company is committed to pay off all the back wages as soon as possible as it has the fund from the sell of assets," the source said.

"The existing situation continues to be stark and restructuring exercise is necessary to evaluate all the options of the organisation," the source added.

The company has requested for a suitable time-frame within which it could be done to reduce the liability before deciding on the next step and till such time would continue to be engaged in dialogue with the state government.
