Tusu takes toll on industrial production at Adityapur, eateries too suffer

Jamshedpur : The tribal festival Tusu, which is celebrated with gaiety and fanfare across the State, has taken a toll on the thriving Adityapur Industrial Area (AIA) and the eateries as a large chunk of work force have left for their hometown to celebrate this festival.

Owners of industrial units at Adityapur are reeling under lack of works force and industrialists said that it would take a week to resume normal production.

President of Adityapur Small Scale Industries Association (ASIA) S.N. Thakur said that like every year this year too the labourers are on leave for the tribal festival and the industries are suffering.

He went on inform that around 70 per cent of 20,000 employees in industrial area are tribals. Due to which industrial area is incurring loss in crores due to slow downed production.

The festival has also created problems at the Tata Motors ancillary units based in AIA that have been set steep targets. Around 70 per cent of the units in AIA manufacture spare parts for the automobile giant.

Not only industrial units, most of the eateries in the city have been hit as well.

However, there is no accurate study about how much the hotel industry incurs looses during the three to four days of closer but by conservative estimate industry suffers a loss of Rs 50 lakh per day.

“There is no accounting evaluation of the business looses the hotel industry incurs during these days but rough estimates indicate that business of around Rs 50 lakh goes waste during these three days of closer,” conceded a senior functionary Jamshedpur Hotelier’s Association In some cases even a week, the small and moderate scale hotel that caters snacks, tea and other mouth watering items to the consumers literally close down their shops, as most of the labourers go on Tusu holiday to their native places
In Jamshedpur 80 percent of the hotels that include tea stalls, small and medium scale eateries and few of the popular restaurants pull down their shutters for three consecutive days at least, as it is genuinely
difficult for them to run their business in the light of fewer work force.

“I closed of my shop for three consecutive days and, it is only after January 30 the business will start as few of the labourers would get back,” informed, Yogesh Gupta, owner of Gupta Tea Stall in Jugsalai.
