New Delhi : Chinese handset maker Vivo said the layoffs at its manufacturing unit in Greater Noida are in line with its business decision. The statement comes amid reports that Vivo has laid off about 60 workers at its Greater Noida plant. Some workers protested and reportedly created ruckus when no clear reason was offered on the sudden layoff.

“With continuous growth and strategic review, we look at staffing the right size in various divisions to improve productivity. The layoff of the contractual employees is in line with this business decision,” Vivo said, reports PTI.

It added that the company ‘strictly adhered’ to the rules and regulations of the contract, and is taking ‘all the right measures’ to ensure a peaceful transition.
