The Economic Times - - Companies -

Coal In­dia has sacked 126 people in Odisha for in­dis­ci­pline, a first-of-its-kind move for a state-run com­pany that ex­perts ex­pect to send out a strong sig­nal to em­ploy­ees, landown­ers and other PSUs, re­ports Sarita C Singh. This is the first time that a PSU has dis­missed so many em­ploy­ees in one go, a Coal In­dia spokesper­son said. The em­ploy­ees were not va­cat­ing land in lieu of which they were of­fered jobs in the com­pany’s sub­sidiary Ma­hanadi Coal­fields. An of­fi­cial of Ma­hanadi Coal­fields said the em­ploy­ees were re­cruited in the Talcher coal­field be­tween 1995 and 2009.
