Ford India on Thursday announced that it has arrived at a settlement on the severance package with the employees union following its decision to shut its Tamil Nadu plant as part of a restructuring exercise. The company announced that it would revise the final severance settlement to an average equivalent of 140 days of gross wages per completed year of service from the ongoing offer of 130 days.

The company said that one additional one-time lump sum of 1.50 lakh will also be included in the final settlement. Thus, a cumulative severance package for each employee of Ford India would range from 34.50 lakh up to 86.50 lakh whereas the revised settlement would translate to an average of about 5.1 years or 62 months salary for each employee.

Ford India, in its statement, also said that it remains grateful to the employee union, the Tamil Nadu government and labour officials for their support. In September last year, the company had announced the shutting down of its operations here and had said that it would sell only imported vehicles in the Indian market.

The automaker has already stopped producing vehicles like EcoSport, Figo and Aspire for the Indian market. In July this year, the company rolled out its last production car from the assembly lines at the Maraimalai Nagar facility about 45 kms from Chennai.

The Ford India factory has been shut since August 31 and so far, there are no employees present at the unit now.
