B’NGIR DM WANTS MIGRANTS BACK BY APR 5

Writes to AP, TN, Karnataka counterparts for help
Muthukumar held a meeting for the purpose in which 36 such contractors having valid licence attended.
He said the contractors have been asked to bring labourers to the rail stations at Kantabanji and Titiligarh from where the district administration would make arrangements to take them to their respective villagers.
On the other hand, the direction has put the contractors in a very piquant situation. “We don’t know how the brick kiln owners would respond to it as labourers are on contracts involving money,” said some contractors.
Elaborating their possible problems further, they said if the employers agree their proposal then how the financial issues would be settled and who would guarantee us that the same labourers would return to their respective brick kilns after the voting.
Interestingly, the Balangir District Labour Office record shows that there are 139 labour contractors in the district while 276 licences have been issued. Many of the contractors have not submitted their detailed list of migrant labourers before the office even if there is a provision that the list must be submitted within 15days of their migration.
