The Bangladesh Export Processing Zones Authority (Bepza) has started paying due salaries and other benefits to the workers of Shine Fashion Company Ltd, a closed factory at Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ).
DEPZ Executive Director Abdus Sobhan handed over some of the pay orders at an event today, according to a press release.
A total of Tk 30.02 crore would be paid to the workers in phases. The remaining workers will get their payments through their bank accounts, it said.
The authorities of the company shut the factory in 2020 because of their failure to pay wages of 2,083 workers.
On December 1 in 2020, Bepza terminated the land lease agreement of the factory and assured that it would make arrangements to pay all the dues of the workers.
