Respected Sir/Madam, HSCL (head office:Kolkata-Hastings) has an operational profit of more than Rs.100 crores. It has about 700 young and middle aged Engineers & support staff on contract working more than 8 years. The young contractual employees have toiled hard and brought the operating profit to decent level. The contractual employees have their family and most of employees daughter or son have given ISCE or CBSE Exams. Employees worried about job in this situation. They all lost job from HSCL. The acquisition will spell doom for the contract employees as they are likely to lose their jobs. It will be pathetic if they are chucked out in the name of restructuring. The Govt. has to clearly spell out the manpower plan. NBCC is acquiring the company after the Government cleans the balance sheet. NBCC will not take any liabilities of the company and will acquire HSCL without paying a penny. But they cannot take any liability any contract employees, they only take 60 Regular Employees. The Govt. has to keep the human factor in mind while restructuring the company. Help US. Best Regards HSCL Contract Employees
