Hailakhandi first in Assam to pay tea workers via bank account


Hailakandi has become the first district in Assam to pay wages to tea garden workers through individual bank accounts before the December 15, 2016 deadline set by the state government for cashless transactions to the plantation workers. 

At least 504 workers of Burnie Braes tea estate received their wages through bank accounts and the payment was made through five Banking Correspondents (CSPs) of Assam.
