Hyderabad: The outstanding issues of allocation and payment of arrears to the staff finally allocated to the power utilities of the two Telugu States will only be taken up by the one-man committee of Justice DM Dharmadhikari appointed by the Supreme Court to distribute staff between the power utilities.

In a letter addressing the heads of Genco, Transco and Discoms of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the former Supreme Court judge said the decision was taken after taking into consideration the ongoing shutdown due to coronavirus.

“It is directed that 655 employees awaiting joining in power utilities in AP and 584 employees in Telangana’s utilities will be paid only regular monthly salary from April 1, by the respective power utilities,” he said.

The order further reads that the issue of allocation and arrears of salaries would be taken up by the committee after the restrictions imposed by the government against the outbreak of coronavirus were lifted and the normal life was restored in the country. The modifications were being issued after a large number of queries, the order said.
