In an endeavor to revive operations, Shyampur Sugar Mill has taken the initiative to resume activities, which was listed in the stock market. A committee has been formed to verify the feasibility of restarting production, with the top eight officials of the Bangladesh Sugar and Food Industries Corporation (BSFIC) appointed to the committee, led by the Director of BSFIC’s Production and Engineering Department.
Previously, the Chief of Personnel, Shahrina Tanaz, had received a letter dated November 9, urging her to provide insights into the matter. The letter specified that a self-contained report should be submitted to the Chairman of Bangladesh Sugar and Food Industries Corporation within the next ten working days.
It has been known that Shyampur Sugar Mill faced financial setbacks of approximately Tk 363 crore 29 lakh 9 thousand taka during the last 10 threshing seasons year. Consequently, the mill halted operations as per the ministry’s directive. The sudden shutdown left a workforce of around a thousand jobless.
The prolonged shutdown has also led to the deterioration of machinery used in sugar processing, affecting the transportation tractors. Despite administrative tasks continuing, the presence of staff has been minimal.
Abu Sufian, General Secretary of Shyampur Sugar Mill Employees Union, said that at least 30,000 people, including 1,000 workers, were making a living around this mill. However the sudden closure of the sugar mill left the seasonal workers jobless for the whole year. We are glad to hear that another letter has come to reopen the mill.
