485 service quarters likely to be regularized
- Talasani takes up Class IV staff’s cause
Hyderabad: As many as 485 Class IV employees of GHMC living at various service quarters on rental basis in the twin cities are likely to be benefited if the State Government decides to regularize them.
Animal Husbandry and Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav appealed to Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao on Saturday to consider regularization under GO No 58 issued earlier which suggests ownership rights to the people staying in such houses.
Srinivas Yadav submitted a memorandum to KTR, who in turn assured him that the issue would be considered and a decision taken at the government level. Talasani had recently made a similar appeal to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who asked GHMC to submit a detailed report and steps to be taken.
The GHMC, which formed a three-member committee submitted a report to Principal Secretary of Municipal Administration. In the report, it was mentioned that the poor people living in these quarters for a few years have been urging regularization and it is for the government to take a final call.
Of the 485 workers staying in these service quarters, some have retired and a few died and the rest are seeking regularization as they are poor. Keeping the persistent appeals from them, Srinivas Yadav has taken the initiative. He sought regularization of the houses in the name of the workers staying there for quite some time. KTR ensured that a high-level meeting of officials called to settle the issue. –NSS
