Guwahati, May 28: The daily wage of tea garden workers in Assam has been hiked by Rs. 38, which will come into effect from February 23 this year.


With this hike, the tea garden workers in Brahmaputra Valley would get Rs. 205 from the existing Rs. 167, and workers of Barak Valley would get Rs. 183 from the existing Rs. 145. This was decided in a meeting between Assam Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma and representatives of Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha and other tea bodies here today, an official release said. The government had earlier in February this year hiked the daily wage to Rs. 217. However, the decision could not be implemented following a court stay order.


Therefore, the government, after threadbare discussion with the tea bodies following the demands of the tea workers, decided to hike the daily wage to Rs. 205 and Rs. 183. Further, the government would raise the remaining Rs. 12 (to make the hike by total Rs. 50) after initiating consultation with stakeholders and exuded confidence that an acceptable solution will be found very soon.


Minister, Industries and Commerce, Chandra Mohan Patowary, Minister for Tea Tribe Welfare Sanjay Kisan, MP Pallab Lochan Das, MLA Rupesh Gowala, President, Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha, Paban Singh Ghatowar, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Samir Kumar Sinha, several other representatives of the tea groups and other senior officials were present at the meeting.
