    Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan has approved the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (Absorption of Employees into Government Service) Bill 2023 in the Telangana State Legislative Assembly. However, she has made certain recommendations to the State Government. These recommendations include:

    1. The ownership of the lands, assets, and properties of the TSRTC should remain with the Corporation itself, even after the absorption of RTC employees as government employees. The government should explicitly guarantee this.

    6. Disciplinary proceedings within the RTC should be more humane and aligned with the same rules and regulations as other government employees.

    7. If RTC absorbed employees are sent on deputation to other departments, their grade, pay, salary, and promotions should be protected.

    8. Contract and outsourced employees should receive similar benefits and salaries as regular employees according to state service rules. Their service should also be recognized and protected for further employment.

    10. The maintenance of buses should be taken over by the government through outsourcing or other means, with the government bearing the financial burden for the safety of the people.

    The Governor wishes all TSRTC employees and their families the best and hopes that this absorption into government service will benefit them all.
