First woman manager in Assam tea estate
GUWAHATI: Good news for women who are thinking of getting promoted to becoming managers in tea gardens of Assam. They now have an inspiration in Manjula.
Manjula Baruah of Hilika Tea Estate in Upper Assam is the manager on move. Baruah who started as a welfare officer is now the manager of the estate after her promotion.
Baruah was promoted in August and now is in the helm of affairs in this Apeejay Tea garden.
Welfare officer is the most lucrative of
tea garden jobs for women as it involves the welfare of the labourers and less about looking after the garden which is a complex management task.
