One more Tea Garden closure at Kalchini Block

Jaigaon: Beech Tea Estate shut down today, taking the number of closed gardens in the Kalchini block to five.

Though the closure notice was issued on April 12, it reached the government on Friday night and the workers are reportedly yet to receive the order.

The labourers, on their part, have kept two assistant managers confined to a bungalow since April 11, protesting against the management for not fulfilling their demands, which include jobs for the dependants of retired/dead employees and payment of gratuity and provident funds.

the only way I think that condition of TG can be improved is by educating people or increasing literacy
