The report on the merger of APSRTC in government is almost ready. The report will be handed over to the government by Sunday. It is reported that the government is working to introduce and approve the merger bill at the Assembly sessions which will be held from the 9th of this month.
If all goes as planned, the merger process will be completed on January 1, as announced earlier. After the passage of the Bill, RTC workers will be merged into the government and will be seen as employees in the newly formed public transport. There is concern among RTC workers that salaries will be reduced after the merger with the government, and some facilities will be lost. Key executives, however, govt made it clear that salaries will not be reduced.
The wage revision will soon be made for the employees as per government employees. The government appointed a committee in October with the heads of various departments to formulate rules on the merger of the RTC. The team will present a report in a couple of days. After examining it, the high-level committee is expected to submit a final report to the government by Sunday. So far only five officers have applied for voluntary retirement at RTC. There will reportedly be no existing RTC trade unions after the merger.
