Darjeeling: A two-day-long meeting in Kolkata between the management and operating trade unions of Darjeeling tea gardens agreed on 15 percent bonus for the financial year 2017-18. The bonus will be disbursed in all hill tea gardens by October 10. Though bonus for Dooars and Terai tea gardens was fixed at 19.50% earlier, the management of the Hill tea gardens had categorically stated that bonus would be disbursed at the rate of 8.33% as per the Bonus Act of 1965. 

The management claimed that the Hill tea gardens had incurred huge losses last year owing to the political strife and the 104-day-long bandh. They had also stated that there would be no negotiation meetings. However, with the unions mounting pressure, the Darjeeling Tea Association had called for a meeting in Kolkata on October 3. With the management insisting on 8.33% and the unions demanding 20%, the meeting spilled over to October 4.
