Similarly, 222 temporary workers will be compensated in the amount of Rs. 2.50 lakh each, with the tea garden management paying Rs. 2 lakh and the State government paying Rs. 500,000. NRL has come forward to appoint 100 garden workers, 50 of whom will be permanent and 50 of whom will be temporary.

In response to ATTSA and ACMS representatives’ requests, the Chief Minister stated that steps would be taken to establish a state-of-the-art skill development centre in Numaligarh to serve the interests of local youth, particularly those from the tea gardens. He also assured ACMS that the State government would provide financial support for the construction of a hostel proposed by the organisation at Mission Patty in Golaghat district.
