The Telangana government regularized 20,903 contract employees working in the state electricity department recently. While 23,667 employees applied for regularization, the screening committees, which examined the applications, finalized that only 20,903 were qualified for regularization.
Others whose applications were rejected by the screening committee based on domicile, age bar, and for leaving the job abruptly, approached High Court.
