Legal cases with fixed pricing, standardized processes, and firm timelines
Four States - Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are directed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday to make an interim payment of approximately INR 127 crores to tea garden workers. These workers are entitled to get their dues unpaid for more than 15 years. The bench formed by Justice S.A. Bobde and Justice L.N. Rao directed such payment on a contempt petition filed by the International Union of Food Association and the Paschim Banga Khet Majdoor Samity.
Senior advocate Colin Gonzalves, during the hearing, asserted that though the Court directed to pay the dues, still the order was not complied with, thus it amounts to contempt of court. It has been pointed out that INR 249 crores, 27 Crores, 70 crores and 30 crores are supposed to be paid by Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal respectively. The states are directed to pay approximately half of such dues within 60 days.
