Advance payments to the skilled labourers.


  1. Couple of Members raised the matter of advance payments being made to the

skilled employees. These skilled employees at times are offered employment by other Steel Pipe Manufacturing Industries at higher salaries. These skilled employees leave the parent industries without clearing advance payments made to them. This causes financial loss to the industries that they leave as these advance payments are generally never settled. Couple of other Members suggested that the only solution to this problem was  not to make advance payments to the skilled employees at all which they had successfully done.      

Any Other Point.


  1. There being no other point, the meeting came to an end with a vote of thanks

to the chair.


Thanking you,

Yours truly,
