Silchar, March 19: Provident fund of the labourers of Bhuvan Valley Tea Estate amounting to Rs.1 crore 30 lakhs has not been cleared yet. The money has not been even deposited in the provident fund of the labourers. It is really a tragic case, as labourers are not getting their own hard-earned money from their personal fund. In this regard, the PF authorities of both Silchar and Guwahati have addressed a letter to the SDO (Civil) Lakhipur and officer in-charge of Lakhipur police station, stating that they will seal the garden. On March 8, 2017, the authorities concerned assisted by police personnel sealed the office, factory, gate, manager’s bungalow. Labourers have demanded that the garden should be auctioned as soon as possible. As there is no caretaker of the garden, it has become lifeless and has become full of weeds. As of now, the labourers are working on daily wage basis.
