Tension is about to brew in Hautoly Tea Estate in Golaghat district on account of transfer of ownership. As per the information the Tea Estate is presently being managed by Moradhar Tea Co. Ltd and in the meantime Golaghat unit of Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha (ACMS) has allegedly handed over the management of the T.E. to Squae Co. Ltd. The takeover of the T.E. was
