AID comes to the aid of workers at IIT-K

This is just a quick follow-up on the IIT-K   incidents.

The Association for India's Development (AID) has a bunch of documents, which include a petition to the Director of IIT-K.

The petition seeks, among other things, free health care facility for all labourers and monitoring their working conditions to ensure that they comply with the laws regarding safety, minimum wages, and health and education for the workers' family members.

Over 400 people have signed this petition. Please do consider adding your voice in support of this good cause.

Thank you.

Thanks to my colleague Prabal Maiti and commenter Ravi for the pointer to the AID-India website.
