The agreement was signed in the presence of senior State government officials, including Deputy Commissioner (Gurgaon) PC Meena, Sub Divisional Magistrate Satyendra Duhan, Labour Commissioner Smt Satwanti Ahlawat and Assistant Labour Commissioner Nitin Yadav.

After an agreement between the management, workers and the Haryana government, the company has decided to re-instate 64 sacked permanent workers and 1200 casual workers at its Manesar plant to avoid any production loss further.
