  • Summary::

    Gurdeep Singh S/o Shinda Singh R/o Village Karalia, Tehsil: Ajnala District Amritsar. Belongs to the Mazhabi Sikh caste which is recognised by the State of Punjab as a Scheduled Caste.


    Gurdeep Singh & his family members were employed at Partap Bricks Udyog Samiti located in Bhalla Pind, Ajanala road, Tehsil Ajnala Dist: Amritsar. The name of the occupier of the said brick kiln, is Shri. Sukhdev Singh S/o Partap Singh. He along with his family members were employed as a Pather in the above mentioned brick kiln in December 2012. Payment of an advance amount of 65,000 (Sixty Five Thousand) was made to them. The names of family members are mentioned below.



    Name and relationship with complainant




    Gurdeep Singh S/o Shinda Singh




    Bhajinder kaur W/o Gurdeep Singh




    Kadar Singh S/o Gurdeep Singh


    Male Child


    Kajal D/o Gurdeep Singh


    Female Child


    Sandeep D/o Gurdeep Singh


    Female Child


    Rohan S/o Gurdeep Singh


    Male Child


    Due to the brick kiln owners strike in the State of Punjab, they were not given any work, although they presented at the work place and employed there as well. They were not allowed to take up any employment of own choice and were compelled to remain present in the brick kiln. Theywere make to sit idle at the work place from December, 2012 till first week of April 2013. No compensation was given by the employer for the loss of wages. He and his family started worked constinuously for three weeks when strike was over in  the first week of April. After this, the employer, Shri Sukhdev Singh, also known as Deva, stated pressurising them to put his thumb impression on some papers.






    Being illiterate, they do not know the contents of the papers on which the employer was forcing to place his thumb impression. Gurdeep Singh refused to sign on papers. He thought his employer surely mis use this paper. Thereafter, the employer, without notice, threw them out of the brick kiln with the help of local police from Ajnala Police Station. Some trucks were hired by the employer and his family and they were removed from the brick kiln forcefully. They pleaded with the employer that their livelihood will be jeopardised, but the employer did not listen their pleas.

    They have no options, he and his family tried to take employment elsewhere because Partap Bricks Udyog Samiti demanded the debt amount of Rs 65,000 back from him. To his shock and dismay, they all denied by the entire brick kiln. It was the instruction of the occupier of that brick kiln that unless the debt advance was paid to the previous employer at Partap Bricks Udyog Samiti, they will not employ him in their brick kiln.


    Gurdeep Singh & his family members are in a state of starvation as they are being systematically denied employment in any brick kiln in Amritsar and elsewhere due to their debt obligation. Being Pathers, the only skills they have to earn there livelihood, is that of brick moulding and his life and liberty is in danger to the social boycott imposed by the employer.  He & His familys member’s only mistake, it seems, is that they stood up for their rights. That, for the past 5 months his family and he was in state of despair, being denied their right to life and livelihood.The complaint was sent to the DM, Amritsar and the persons were physically released but no FIR was registered against the employer.
