Retrenchment of Contract Workers
PIB December 10/2012 : The Minister of Steel, Shri Beni Prasad Verma has said that in SAIL plants/units including Durgapur Steel Plant, job contracts are awarded to contractors through a tendering process for carrying out jobs of temporary, intermittent/seasonal nature as also for Projects & current Expansion and Modernisation activities as per organizational requirements. The contractor engages contract labour as per requirement and the terms and conditions of engagement are settled between the Contractor and the Contract Workers for the actual period of contract/engagement.
