Judicial panel for tea gardens

The Assam government has set up a Judicial Commission to study the working conditions in the tea gardens. Headed by a retired judge, the panel will study the implementation of the Plantation Labour Act in the tea gardens apart from suggesting measures to improve the working condition. The judicial panel would look into the housing, health, education and other facilities being provided by the tea gardens. The government has made it mandatory that a tea garden must have all the facilities under the Plantation Labour Act before it can be sold off.
