Lakhanpur MSMEs in J&K seek restriction free movement of workers

Jammu, Oct 14 (KNN) If the pandemic and political turmoil were not bad enough, the industrial sector of Jammu & Kashmir have had to brace for another blow- restriction on movement of workers to and from neighboring states.

“The Industrial Sector of Jammu & Kashmir is suffering very badly due to shortage of Industrial Workers. As government has imposed restrictions on the movement of workers coming from outside the State, they have to wait for days at Lakhanpur and are forced to return back”, complained Lalit Mahajan of Bari Brahmana Industries Association (BBIA).

The association has requested Hon’ble Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene to facilitate free movement of private vehicles and state carriage buses for Interstate movement as is permitted by other neighbouring states namely Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh or Delhi. I

“It will provide great relief to the Industrial Sector of J&K and also to Common peoples”, he added.

According to the association,  the production of industrial units was suffering very badly due to non-availability of technical persons because of permission needed to enter the state.

‘Workers refuse to come to Jammu for the repair of machinery and other equipment for which the local technical persons are not available’, they say.  

To discuss the problem being faced by the industrial units due to restrictions imposed at Lakhanpur for the movement staff and workers, BBIA held a meeting on Tuesday.
