No delay for implementation of GO beyond Nov. 20, says Chief Minister

HYDERABAD: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has set November 20 as the fresh deadline for all the departments to implement GO 610 saying “I will not allow any more delay, whatever may be the reasons.”

Dr. Reddy directed the officials concerned to prepare a white paper on the implementation of GO 610 by the departments which would be released during a high-level meeting, probably the last one on the issue, to be chaired by him on November 20. The Chief Minister, who reviewed the implementation of the order, expressed concern over the delay and said the issue should come to a logical conclusion.

Directive

“It cannot go on like this. There should be an end to this exercise,” Dr. Reddy said directing all the departments to come out with the exact number of non-locals who should be repatriated from Zone V and VI so that orders could be issued with immediate effect. Irrespective of whether the identified employees approach courts or tribunals or prefer joining duties in their respective parent zones, posts should be created and notified immediately.

Supernumerary posts

The Chief Minister said supernumerary posts to the extent of non-locals (other than those from Telangana districts) would be created and form part of recruitment, mostly of teachers and policemen, which was already under process.

The Government was prepared to create more supernumerary posts for implementation of the GO 610 in its “right spirit.”

He wanted Chief Secretary P. Ramakanth Reddy to convene a meeting every Saturday to review the implementation process and report the same to the Cabinet sub-committee constituted for the purpose that would meet every Monday.

According to an official release, Dr. Reddy was informed that 18,061 employees were identified for repatriation so far and orders had been issued to 9,417, while those in case of 5,867 were yet to be issued.

In all, 7,875 employees were relieved of which 5,361 joined duties in their parent zones.
