The Hindustan Paper Corporation (HPC)’s liquidator Kuldeep Verma has issued a notice asking the employees of the two paper mills Nagaon Paper Mill (NPM) and Cachar Paper Mill (CPM) in Assam to vacate their accommodation or quarters within 15 days or those who would not comply will be faced with legal action.
What is stated in the notification issued by HPC?
The notification issued by the liquidator of Hindustan Paper Corporation Ltd, Kuldeep Verma stated “Since your employment with the Corporate debtor came to end with effect from 02.05.2019 or earlier due to superannuation/resignation/death or termination from the services of the Corporate debtor, your occupation of the accommodation/quarters occupied by you is unauthorised and you are required to vacate the same”.
“The undersigned hereby calls upon all the notices to vacate the accommodation/quarters occupied by them within 15 days of this notice…” it added.
The process started in 2019
The liquidated process started in December, 2019, when Verma had issued a similar notice asking the employees of these two mills to vacate their quarters within March 31, 2020. A Union of Cachar Paper Mill with Delhi High Court filed a petition thereafter. And following this high court had directed for a stay in that order.
Tough days ahead for the employees
According to reports, the mills’ employees, who have not been getting salaries for over four years, have appealed to the government many times for remittance of their dues, but nothing has been done and they have been facing financial crisis since then. And now this order for vacating their residential quarters, the mills’ employees are most likely to have to face very tough days.
