Hyderabad: The Ministers’ Committee, which was constituted to resolve long-pending issues of employees, on Friday rejected the employees’ unions demand for lifting the ban on transfers immediately. The Committee made it clear that the ban will be lifted only after successfully carrying out the Rythu Bandhu – crop investment support scheme to be launched on May 10 in Telangana state.
The committee headed by State Finance Minister E Rajender held first round of talks with the representatives of the employees’ unions at the Secretariat. In the meeting, the unions insisted that the government clear all the pending applications regarding transfers.
In a quick response, the committee said since all the departments were busy in the implementation of the crop investment support scheme, the government will take a decision on lifting of ban on transfers only after completion of the cheque distribution to all identified farmers under the scheme.
Rajender said that the government has taken into consideration all the 18 demands raised by the employees. The demand for transfers will be addressed after May and the issue will be brought to the notice of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao soon. The demand for the constitution of Pay Revision Commission (PRC) is also under active consideration.
The union leaders from Telangana Gazetted Officers (TGO) and TNGO (Telangana Non Gazetted Officers) organisations said that the government responded positively to all their demands. They said the committee assured to resolve all their demands shortly. The second meeting between the committee and unions is likely to be held in two days.
