It threatens statewide unrest if new pay scales aren’t implemented in 10 days

Andhra Pradesh JAC Amaravati leaders on Saturday held the finance ministry responsible for the delay in implementing the 11 e Recommendations of the Salary Review Commission (PRC) for agents of the Public Transport Department (PTD-RTC).

Leaders gave the department a 10-day deadline or threatened to resort to statewide unrest.

Speaking to the media after a meeting of the JAC, which includes the AP PTD Employees Union, Karmika Parishad and the APSRTC Security Employees Welfare Association, its president Boppa Raju said said that the new recommended salary scales were being implemented for all government employees, PTD employees were still waiting for them due to the delay caused by the Ministry of Finance.

He demanded that the 51,488 employees of the PDT be paid the new scales this month with arrears from January this year.

The JAC leader said they would wait 10 days and if their appeal was not heeded they would resort to collective unrest across the state.

The head of PTD employees’ JAC, YV Rao, said that although the government is concerned about the plight of the employees, the finance ministry’s nonchalant stance is subjecting them to financial problems.

Karmika Parishad General Secretary Srinivasa Rao said that despite several approaches to RTC authorities, Finance Ministry officials were indifferent to their demands.

Parishad State Chairman SV Seshagiri Rao, Publicity Secretary Y. Ramesh and a host of others spoke.
