According to a statement released by the Adani Group here today, employees from operational areas including production, maintenance, and quality would be transferred to three grinding plants at Ropar, Bathinda, and Nalagarh and three integrated units at Marwar Mundwa, Rabriyawas, and Lakheri.
On December 15, the Adani Group shut down production at ACL, Darlaghat, and ACC Ltd, Gagal, after transporters refused to accept a lower freight of Rs 6 per tonne per km (PTPK), which was offered in place of the plants’ previous freights of Rs 10.58 PTPK and Rs 11.41 PTPK, respectively.
The management of the Adani Group reiterated that the two manufacturing facilities’ operations had been suspended due to pressing circumstances as a result of rising operational costs for cement and clinkers, particularly as a result of high transportation costs for both raw materials and finished goods. To reach a peaceful conclusion, it sought cooperation from all parties involved, including the transporter unions.
According to the Adani Group, the choice to move the workers from the two cement factories was made to protect their welfare. According to the statement, taking this action was necessary to protect jobs during the shutdown. The two units each have around 1,500 workers, and they have been without a job since December 15.
