After being tough, KCR showers sops on RTC!

Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who had been adopting a tough stand in dealing with the employees of Telangana State Road Transport Corporation all these days, has suddenly turned a Messiah for them.

On Sunday, KCR called nearly 1,000 RTC employees to his residence-cum-camp office Pragati Bhavan over lunch and handed a sweet package to all of them.

He categorically assured that employment security will be given to all the TSRTC employees stating that not even one employee will be sacked from the job.

He also declared that not even one private bus will be permitted to operate even in a single RTC bus’s route.

The chief minister announced that the salaries of RTC employees for the month of September would be paid on Monday. And salaries for the strike period would also be paid at one go. 

An amount of Rs 2 lakh would be paid as ex gratia to the families of those RTC employees who had committed suicide during the strike period.

“One eligible member of the family of the deceased would be given the government job within eight days,” he said.

The CM also announced that the RTC employees and workers retirement age is increased from 58 years to 60 years. Annual increments would be paid as usual to the staff, besides reimbursing Provident Fund arrears and pension dues.

The chief minister announced allocation of Rs 1,000 crore in the State Budget to the TSRTC.

He desired that the RTC should become profitable in the next four months, every year it should earn Rs 1000 Crore profit and the RTC employees should get Rs one lakh annual bonus. 

After having lunch with the RTC workers, KCR responded and reacted to each and every issue of the RTC workers. The meeting took place in a congenial atmosphere. The CM solved the problems then and there and issued clear-cut instructions to the officials concerned.
