Funeral expenses for deceased RTC employees hiked

The amount being paid towards funeral expenses to the family members of a deceased in-service and retired employees in AP State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) has been enhanced from the existing ₹10,000 to ₹15,000.

In a circular released on Thursday, Corporation Vice-Chairman and Managing Director N.V. Surendra Babu said the management conceded a request made by the APSRTC Retired Employees’ Association that the funeral expenses be paid through any depot.

He also said that the payment of the money would not be delayed in case there was a delay in submission of the death certificate of the employee. The family members could submit ID-cards issued at the time of the retirement for travel and medical benefits, he said.

Regularised

The services of 52 drivers and 80 conductors working on contract basis so far, have been regularised with effect from June 15, according to an order issued by Executive Director (administration) A. Koteswara Rao.

Mr. Rao said there would be no change of place for employees whose services were regularised. Only in the departments where there was no vacancy, there were being shifted to other regions, he said.
