Sandip Kumar Dubey, an employee, said that the staffers were facing hardships as they had not received their salary for three to four months.

"We are carrying out a silent protest here to convey our message to the government. Please listen to us. We have people dependent on us. We have not got our salary for three to four months while some senior employees have not been paid for five months," he told reporters.

Dayal Shahdeo, another employee, said that the government or any authorised body should help revive the company so that it can go back to serve the people.
