Bengal Govt to start providing more facilities at tea gardens

The Bengal Government will soon start providing more facilities to the tea garden workers, who have been facing a lot of hardship because of the forced closure of the tea gardens till a few months back.

The situation has been improving steadily, and now the government has decided to extend further help in the form of opening a health centre, a modified ration shop (MR shop), which is essentially a fair-price shop, and a labour office in each tea garden.

The three will be housed in a three-storey building, for constructing which the State Government will give Rs 8.77 lakh to each tea garden. Foodgrains which could not be distributed due to the 104-day closure of the gardens would be distributed at the earliest.

The government will also construct four warehouses to stock foodgrains in Darjeeling, Kurseong, Mirik and Kalimpong. In case foodgrains fail to arrive from the plains during emergencies like natural calamities, the public distribution system (PDS) will continue to operate with the help of the existing stock in these four storages.

Over the last year or so, following the special initiative of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the State Government has provided a lot of help to the tea garden workers, including providing foodgrains at special prices, lesser than the normal prices at ration shops under the public distribution system (PDS).
