PHALEBAS, Oct 3:The construction of a tunnel for the 20-megawatt lower Modi Hydropower Project based in Parbat that was halted due to workers' strike has resumed.
An agreement on a new payroll contract reached between the South Asian Infrastructure Pvt Limited, the tunnel developer, and the agitating side paved the way for the resumption of the tunnel construction from today.
Project employees and workers were on a warpath, demanding a 25 per cent increase in their payroll. The company agreed to increase remunerations of its staffs and workers by 10 per cent.
The project has over 200 staffs and workers. Of 4021 meters long tunnel of the project, construction of only 438 meters has been left. The company has a plan of completing it by the next nine months, according to company project Manager Dhruba Mishra. RSS
