Andhra Pradesh employees draw out a mother of all wish lists

Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh Secretariat Employees Association (APSEA) Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officer’s Association (APNGOs) and JAC, an umbrella organisation of several officers have put forward about 15 demands to shift to Vijayawada by June. This includes five day work-week.
Speaking to The Hans India, a senior official pointed out that the government would be in a position to immediately address only three to four issues. They include: asking the Centre to resolve the issue of local status so that the children of the employees do not suffer, to continue the 30 per cent HRA which they have been getting in Hyderabad and to provide additional financial incentives to meet TA and DA.
The sources said that the employees had demanded “Displacement Allowance” but it was not tenable. Because, there is every possibility that even non-government employees, from 90 and odd public sector organizations falling under Schedule 9 and 10 of APRO Act, would make a similar demand.
The government may also consider incentives either in percentage or lump sum per month, depending on the cadre for a period of one year to compensate the additional expenditure the employees would incur on account of shifting to Vijayawada.
Government would also consider special relaxation to the children of the employees studying in professional colleges like medicine, engineering and other such courses in TS, to migrate to AP and to join the professional colleges there as demanded by the employees.
The employees also want the government to absorb spouses of the employees working in TS, provide temporary accommodation and rent- and-own scheme for permanent residences in the new capital area and a special VRS for those who cannot shift from Hyderabad to Vijayawada due to medical reasons.
