Hyderabad: Only 4,000 APSRTC employees from Seemandhra region will be entitled to get salaries this month. While those failed to work during the month and took part in agitation, will be guided by the ‘no work, no pay’ norm. With the corporation incurring huge losses, the officials are cracking whip by implementing the ‘no work, no pay’ for this month. According to officials, only 5 per cent of 75,000 workforce from Seemandhra worked during current month, with remaining taking part in the agitation. A total of 65 per cent ‘loss’ was registered during the month, whose repercussions will be felt long enough to dent the recent decisions over ‘regularisation’ and ‘salary hike’.

As August was the month of marriage season, the corporation expected good profits, but on the contrary it suffered a daily loss of Rs 23 crore. “We expected to make profits this season as RTC is suffering from various factors,” said M Mallikarjuna, Chief Accounts Officer.

On an average the management expected to generate Rs 700 crore revenue per month but it experienced losses of Rs 80 crore in last four months. “The corporation hoped to consolidate the losses, but the things have turned out like this,” lamented the official. “Even though the corporation is able to cope up with the situation for this month, by halting the payment of arrears to other organisations, but if the situation continues it would be big financial crunch,” said the official.

Clear instructions were given by the MD to officials to give salary only to the employees who worked. The officials will ensure towards minimising of scope arising out of salary discrepancies. With no key data is available, the management will have to depend on the strike register maintained by the managers. “Even for this month funds will be at the managers’ disposal, as they will classify those who are eligible,” noted the official. Officials maintain that taking loans from government or banks is currently is not an option for APSRTC at this juncture.
