ISSUE: ABSENTEEISM IN TEA GARDENS
DESCRIPTION:

Tea Workers in most tea gardens of Assam are bound to the daily work – weekly wage system of employment. The tea company provides a lot of added benefits to the workers for being regular in the tea gardens. Jawa’s film on decreasing absenteeism stresses on the need for people to attend work daily as the tea company deducts not only their wage but also many of the provisions that would prove very beneficial to both the worker and his/her family.

CLIENT FILMS

Description: For the daily wage earners in the tea gardens of India’s Assam, saving money is difficult as their earning is very low. To help such people ICICI Prudential Pvt Ltd has introduced a micro-saving scheme. Under this plan, a tea garden worker can save Rs 25-125 every week which is deducted from their wages. Supported by International Labour Organization, the plan helps workers save without traveling to a far away town or any struggle.
