Hyderabad: The Joint Action Committee of Telangana Employees, Gazetted Officers, Teachers, Pensioners and Workers on Tuesday urged the State government to lift the ban on transfers in the State. The JAC representatives met with Chief Secretary S K Joshi at the Secretariat where they asked the government to allow those who had served in a single location for two years to seek transfers and ensure that all those who have completed five years at a particular location be transferred.
The JAC chairman K Ravinder Reddy and secretary general V Mamatha told reporters after they met with Joshi that they also requested the setting up of the 11th Pay Revision Commission for implementation of new PRC recommendations from July 1, this year. They said they asked the Chief Secretary to cancel the ‘orders-to-serve’ issued for employees posted to the new districts in the State and take up permanent allocation of staff to the districts.
Ravinder Reddy said the Chief Secretary assured the JAC delegation that he would look into the demands sympathetically. Among the other demands placed before the government by the JAC were reducing the service period required for promotions from three years to two, bringing back people from the State posted ‘illegally’ to Andhra Pradesh by the Kamalanathan Committee and sanction of five days special casual leave a year to all women employees on par with teachers.
