Dooars tea garden with 1800 workers announces suspension of work over Puja bonus

A tea garden in Jalpaiguri with around 1,800 workers has announced suspension of work over Puja bonus.

The cash-strapped Nayasailee Tea Estate, located in Malbazar, had been allowed to pay 16 per cent bonus to workers, three per cent less than what other tea gardens are paying.

The garden management said the employees had been disrupting work over the past few days demanding 19 per cent bonus. TT
