The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) has announced a 4.8% dearness allowance (DA) for its employees. The DA will be included in their October month salary. The TSRTC managing director, VC Sajjanar, made the announcement and also stated that all pending DA instalments will be released for the employees. This decision was made by the management to grant a 4.8% DA to employees starting from July of this year.
Sajjanar acknowledged the hard work of the TSRTC employees and their commitment to providing safe and quality services to passengers. He emphasized the crucial role employees play in the company’s growth. The TSRTC has prioritized the welfare of its employees and has sanctioned 9 DAs in instalments since 2019. With the latest DA sanction, all DAs owed to employees have been paid by the company.
However, RTC union leaders are demanding payment of DA arrears. They expressed gratitude towards the corporation MD for sanctioning the DA but requested that the corporation pay the total DA for the past 173 months.
