Manjula Manasa, chairperson of the Karnataka State Commission for Women (KSCW), made a surprise visit to a garment factory at Gejjalagere, near Maddur, in Mandya district on Monday and expressed unhappiness over the lack of facilities for the employees.

Following several complaints of lack of basic facilities, Ms. Manasa visited Sai Garments and held interactive sessions with employees.

“I have found irregularities in providing basic facilities to the employees at the unit,” Ms. Manasa told The Hindu.

The factory management had failed to provide basic facilities like proper transportation to its 4,400 women-workers, she said.

Expressing dissatisfaction over the irregularities at the unit, Ms. Manasa said that the unit had no rest-rooms for women.
