Press release: Assam Tea Workers Demand Action from the World Bank and Tata
Author: PAJHRA, PAD, Accountability Counsel, Nazdeek & Columbia Law School, Published on: 6 November 2016
An investigation published today on Tata’s tea plantations in Assam vindicates the claims of Indian NGOs documenting the failure of the World Bank and Tata to uphold the fundamental rights of workers and their families. Over 155,000 people live and work on tea plantations run by Amalgamated Plantations Private Limited (APPL), the second largest tea producer in Assam. The project has the potential to significantly improve thousands of lives, however the Bank’s initial response to the investigation fails to make the most of this opportunity.
