    The state cabinet has decided to merge the TSRTC with the government. A bill will be introduced in the state Assembly, which will meet from August 3, to make this decision official. Once the bill is passed, the employees of TSRTC will be considered as government employees.

    This demand for merging TSRTC with the government has been there for about seven to eight years. In 2019, TSRTC went on a major strike that lasted for 41 days and involved around 48,000 employees. Unfortunately, 27 people lost their lives during the strike. With this merger, approximately 43,000 employees will benefit.
