Puducherry, Apr 10 (UNI) The Puducherry administration is aware that different dearness allowances were paid to the staff and workers of the Government-owned Anglo-French Textile Mills here and would consider to provide the same DA, Industries Minister V Vaithilingam told the Territorial Assembly today.
The Minister made the statement while replying to a question on the issue. However, no supplementary questions were permitted on the question by the Speaker, who said a calling attention motion on the issue would be taken up shortly and the members could participate in it.
To another question, Chief Minister N Rangasamy said the administration would take steps to protect the interests of the investors in PNL Nidhi Limited and Thirumala Benefit funds, cheated by the finance companies.
