The Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) Government is soon going to discuss the merging of the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) and the Andhra Pradesh Government.
The State Government, in October, constituted a committee comprising the heads of a few AP Government departments to study the possibility of merging the APSRTC with the AP Government.
The committee prepared a detailed report, formulating rules and regulations regarding the merger process and is expected to submit it to a high level committee in a couple of days.
After reviewing the report, the high level committee would submit it to the State Government and Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, for final approval by the 8th of December.
While many RTC workers are happy with the decision of merging APSRTC with the State Government, many others are concerned about their salaries being reduced after the merger. However, the State Government cleared their doubts and said the salaries would not be reduced.
The YSRCP would table the matter for discussion during the Winter Session of the AP Assembly and would pass a bill for the same. The Winter Session of the AP Assembly is scheduled to begin from the 9th of December.
If approved, the merger process is expected to be done by the 1st of January 2020.
Stay tuned for further updates.
