After exactly one month, the striking workers of Tata Nano plant at Sanand in Gujarat today called off their strike and decided to resume duty from tomorrow.

The decision was taken after a marathon meeting between the workers's representatives, top management of Tata Motors and the Labour Department officials today.

Tata Motors stated that it will revoke the suspension of 13 out of 26 workers and will take decision about the rest following completion of enquiries being conducted by the company.

Decision regarding another two suspended workers will be taken after they reply to the company's second show cause notice, it stated.

"Workmen will call off the strike and resume duty from 23 March and restore normalcy and operate as per productivity, quality, discipline and safety requirements of the plant," the company stated.

"Tata Motors, without setting a precedence, will revoke suspension of 13 of the workmen while continuing their enquiry. Suspension pending enquiry of rest of 13 workmen will continue till the decision is taken on completion of enquiries," it further said.

Company said the enquiries initiated regarding all 26 workers will be completed within the "reasonable time line" of 4-6 months, following which the workers' union will submit "a reasonable charter of demand".

Workers' representatives said the strike has been settled with the management of the company after 8-hour long meeting.
