Production at Ghorashal and Polash Urea Fertiliser Factory in Narshindi has been stopped due to suspension of gas supply.
Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited suspended gas supply to the factories since 4pm Monday.
Polash Urea Fertiliser Factory’s CBA President Humayun Kabir confirmed this to Dhaka Tribune.
Ghorashal factory was producing 1,422 tonnes and Polash factory 305 tonnes of urea every day.
CBA leaders at Polash Fertiliser Factory said authorities suspend gas supply to the factories every year forcing them to halt production.
The factories are facing severe losses because of the production halt, they said.
Workers of the factories became unemployed due to the closure, they said, adding that the government notice did not mention how long the factories would remain closed.
Earlier, the factories remained closed for about seven months last year due to suspension of gas supply.
