HYDERABAD: A division bench of the Hyderabad High Court on Friday directed both AP and Telangana governments to continue the services of all employees who included contractual and outsourced staff at the Information Commission and the salaries shall be paid in the ratio of 58:42. The bench of Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice J Uma Devi was passing these orders in cases filed by several employees who were asked not to come to the office as their services were not required. 

The Telangana government said that they are constituting the commission and they can continue them as per the provision of the State Reorganisation Act.  On the other hand, the AP government submitted that since there was no information commission in the state there was no need of these employees. 

The bench reminded that the court has recently passed orders directing both AP and Telangana states to constitute information commission in their respective states and to appoint chief information commissioner and commissioners within six weeks, and hence the services of said employees shall be continued and their salaries shall be paid in 58:42 ratio.
