New Delhi, Aug 26 (IANS) The government Tuesday said it has not issued any notice to Chinese telecom company Huawei Technologies, charging it with employing Chinese workers in India without proper work permits.”Attention of the government has been invited to a report published in a section of the press regarding a purported notice given by the Ministry of Labour and Employment to a firm namely Huawei on the alleged violations of various labour and employment regulations of the country,” a government statement said.
