A meeting of the cashew industrial relations committee convened by Fisheries Minister J. Mercykutty Amma here on Friday has decided to make all major cashew factories in the State functional.
The meeting pointed out that the factories of many companies in the State remained shut while those outside the State were functional.
It was decided to open all factories, including those of Vijayalekshmi Cashew company.
The Minister said that alternative arrangements had been made to ensure that the payment of wages to workers were not affected by the financial restrictions following demonetisation. — Special Correspondent
