Gangtok Smart City CEO clarifies termination of workers

By A correspondent

GANGTOK, Aug 12 - The CEO of the Gangtok Smart City project has responded to allegations made by 52 employees who were terminated recently.

The terminated employees had alleged political interference over the move to end their employment.

In an interview with a digital media house, Tarzan Subba, CEO of the Gangtok Smart City project, refuted the charge that the 52 employees were terminated without a notice period.

Subba said that on the contrary, each employee was given a one-month notice period in the beginning of August and were told that their termination would come into effect from September 6, 2019.

He expressed his inability to keep all the 52 employees as there was not enough work in the Smart City project for all of them. He said the project required just 7-8 workers and the section at present was overstaffed with hardly any work for them to do.

Subba said that it was also a matter of financial responsibility as the salary allocated for administrative purposes was spent in paying salaries to the 52 employees in one year itself, and there was no fund left for the full five years of their contract.
