The Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao has announced the formation of RTC Employees Welfare Board as per his earlier promise.
The Board will consist of two representatives from each depot, aggregating to 202 members on the Board. Of this, 94 will be from the BC communities, 38 SCs, 26 STs, 44 OCs. There will be 73 women members on the Board. The Board meetings will be held once in a week at the depot level, once in a month at the region level, once in three months at the Corporation level. In these meetings, problems and issues of the employees will be discussed and solved.
The CM instructed the officials to ensure that the staff and employees work with dedication and commitment to turn round the RTC into profits and to explain to the employees about the welfare measures taken by the government. He wanted the RTC EDs to conduct depot-wise meetings in the next ten days and prepare locally specified strategies.
