Andhra Pradesh Revenue Services Association has demanded the State Government to recruit more employees in the Revenue Department to relieve work stress on the present employees.
Addressing a conference at Irrigation Guest House on Friday, the association President Bopparaju Venkateswarlu said that even after five decades, the employees’ strength in the Revenue department could not be increased, resulting to work stress on the limited personnel.
He said the Revenue department has the key role in all the government activities besides the revenue work. The association has requested the Chief Minister N Chandra Babu Naidu to raise the strength of the personnel in the department or to minimise the stress on present employees, as part of the administrative reforms.
The government should be transparent on as far as the transfers of Revenue staff is concerned, he said, adding that the Government is trying to transfer Tahsildars from one district to another district. “Likewise the Village Revenue Officers (VRO) transfers must also be taken up by government from one division to another,” he said.
He demanded the government to implement the Junior Assistant Pay scale to Village Revenue Officers as per 10th Pay Revision Committee recommendations. He also demanded to pay the salaries of Village Revenue Assistants regularly without fail.
He then demanded the government to recruit trained Revenue Inspectors as per seniority after completion of the training. He requested the government to pay the miscellaneous expenses of Mee Seva wing to the Tahsildars as per the orders issued earlier.
He said that the District administration is making the revenue officials as scapegoats; even they are not concerned in those works. He recalled that in Kurnool district the administration has taken action against the Tahsildar on the fish tanks issue recently and in West Godavari district also the same situation prevailed.
