APSRTC repatriates 150 staff to TSRTC
Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) repatriated all the 150 employees, who have been working on deputation in the corporation, to TSRTC except a senior official of financial wing.
Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) repatriated all the 150 employees, who have been working on deputation in the corporation, to TSRTC except a senior official of financial wing.
Some of the employees, who are working in APSRTC corporate office, received the orders on Friday and they were directed to be relieved on the same day (Friday). Their attempts for their continuation in APSRTC at least for some more time have failed and some of the employees are planning to approach the High Court against the orders of APSRTC.
The APSRTC even transferred three employees who have been working in Transport Minister’s peshi in Velagapudi and an employee working at State Vigilance Commissioner’s office. The corporation’s higher ups allegedly did not consider the request of Minister’s peshi to stop transfer of the three employees.
APSRTC Managing Director M Malakondaiah told The Hans India that around 150 employees having nativity of Telangana State, had been repatriated as their deputation period completed by June 30, 2017.
He said around 34 employees of APSRTC, who worked on deputation basis in Telangana, had already been transferred to Andhra Pradesh. However, the RTC did not transfer a senior executive officer of Telangana’s nativity who has been representing RTC’s financial wing. This act attracted huge criticism from employees and officials.
An official asked why the management was biased over the officer and did not apply the same rule to him. When contacted APSRTC executive director (administration) A V Rao said managing director of TSRTC agreed for swap of a women employee of APSRTC in exchange of the executive officer of TSRTC. But he did not disclose any name of the swap case.
Sources said the TSRTC did not agree for swap of the women officer of APSRTC who wanted to go to TSRTC, whose husband works in Telangana. Meanwhile, some of the employees, who repatriated to TSRTC, are not willing to go there as they are natives of Andhra Pradesh.
``Though we were appointed for regional cadre in Telangana due to some reasons, we are natives of Andhra Pradesh and our families and relatives are here. RTC higher ups should consider our case sympathetically, ” an employee said. While some employees have already been relieved from APSRTC, the other employees having nativity of AP are planning to go to High Court seeking stay orders on their transfers.
