JFA urges ABP management to withdraw job-cut strategy
The Journalists' Forum Assam (JF)} has urged the management of ABP group, the mother organisation of The Telegraph, Ananda Bazar Patrika etc, to withdraw its policy to cut jobs including those of journalists.
It is understood that the Kolkata based management recently asked almost half of its employees to resign and get the benefit of six months basic pay.

The northeast India-based media rights body has observed that as the heat of implementation of Majithia Wage Board's recommendations increased, many established newspaper houses are preparing to close down their branches to reduce their employees.

Few have taken the practice of asking the media persons to resign with some benefits.

"First, we appeal the targeted employees, including the scribes, not to resign under the pressure of the management," the JFA said.

"Secondly, we would like to advise them to adopt the judicial process as the apex court of the country had endorsed the latest wage board for newspaper and news agency employees," the JFA added.
