Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals employs more than 70 per cent from Karnataka

  • | Saturday | 29th May, 2021

MRPL has demonstrated unflinching commitment to the social and economic well-being of the coastal Karnataka region and the state all along its existence.  

Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals (MRPL) has initiated an investigation into the concerns raised by people`s representatives on bypassing local people in recruitments and employing people from outside the state in the company. Being a responsible PSU, the chief vigilance officer is holding the investigation and will report to the central vigilance commission, a release from the company said on Thursday.

A meeting on the recruitment issue was held recently in which the district-in-charge Minister, MP and MLAs in Dakshina Kannada district took part.

"MRPL would like to reaffirm our commitment to a fair and transparent process that ensures social justice to all concerned," it said.

In a clarification, the company said MRPL`s integrated complex has employed more than 70 percent of its employees from Karnataka.

Among its non-management employees, nearly 90 percent are from the state.

MRPL has employed more than 600 members from the families who have given their land to MRPL during its inception and expansion.

These figures are proof of MRPL`s approach towards local employment.

More than 80 percent of the secondary workforce in MRPL`s integrated complex belong to Karnataka.
