Asian Paints Promises Jobs To Farmers, Sets Up New Unit


Asian Paints, which had been struggling with the farmers' protests who were asking for jobs in lieu of the land that the company had procured from them, has now promised farmers to jobs at its new facility near Nanjangud, Mysuru. 

Asian Paints has stated in a statement that it is aiming to conclude all disputes with the farmers whose protests had resulted in the shutting of the Nanjangud plant. It is planning to set up an additional unit for manufacturing of alternate products on the same plot for the farmers who sold the land. 

The company was perpetually in talks with the government and the farmers and had offered many proposals with regards to employment generation for the farmers. The proposal has now been accepted by the government and the farmers have also accepted the terms of employment at a different facility at the plot.

The offered terms of employment will align with the expertise and the qualification of the farmers. Additionally, Asian Paints is also going to offer six-month training to farmers who are eligible and a suitable stipend. The Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) has also given their nod to send the final list of land sellers who pass the eligibility criteria to the company by January 18.
