Give police protection
A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court today directed the police to provide protection to the Kerala Electrical Lamp Works-Crompton Greaves Limited for removing their machinery from their closed factory at Athani near Angamaly.
The Bench comprising Justice K.A. Abdul Gafoor and Justice J.M. James directed the Deputy Superintendent of Police, Aluva, to grant protection provided the company deposited Rs. 45 lakhs and Rs. 22 lakhs respectively for payment of compensation and gratuity to the workers of the company with the Ernakulam District Labour Officer. This was subject to the outcome of the ongoing conciliation proceedings.
The directions came on a writ petition filed by the company.
According to it, the company was closed down in September 2002 as it had run into heavy loss. It had entered into an agreement with two companies for the sale of its machinery at Athani.
The unions at the factory were obstructing the removal of the machinery. So, the company sought police protection.
The unions took the stand that the conciliatory proceeding were on and there was a possibility of the company being reopened.
