Firm denies charges


In a letter to the Chairperson of the Commission Nina Nayak, the Company said, “We have taken care to have age verification certificate/dental check-ups for age specification with the support of Janodaya, an NGO, giving consultancy services for the welfare of garment industry workers in our factory. By such statements, the business of the factory gets affected and compliance department gets wrong information, creating unnecessary issues.”

A former garment worker and an activist at the public hearing had said that girls were being brought from Andhra Pradesh to work in garment factories for a sum of Rs 1,500 a month, housed in hostels and kept under guard. The public hearing also heard grievances from women working in different garment factories.
