Since October 2017, thousands of workers of Century Yarn & Century Denim Mills, owned by Birla Group, have been holding a satyagraha against the unlawful selling and shutting of the mill.

In mid-2017, showing a loss of around Rs 100 crore, the Birla group had sold the mill with 84 acres of land, buildings, machinery etc. to a Kolkata-based corporate, Wearit Global Ltd., for a meagre price of Rs 2.5 crore.
