GULBARGA: The state government will withdraw its order dated March 30, which allowed the government servants across eight districts to work from 8 am to 1.30 pm in April and May of 2012 and 2013, said Minister for Water Resource and District Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Now the staff has to work from 10 am to 5.30 pm. The mentioned order was valid in Bidar, Gulbarga, Yadgir, Raichur, Koppal and Bellary of Gulbarga region and Bagalkot and Bijapur of Belgaum region.

He told press persons at Korwar village of Chittapur taluk on Friday that as all the eight districts were reeling under drought, facilitating government servants for one time work will pose a problem for the common man in availing facilities like obtaining drinking water, fodder, implementation of NREGS and more. The minister received complaints in this regard.

Bommai said  he spoke to Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda over phone on Friday. “The CM has agreed to withdraw the order and a circular for one time office will be issued in a couple of days,” he said.

With this, the state government bid goodbye to the practice of one-time service in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, which was in force since the rule of the Nizam. The Nizam government provided the facility of one-time service in four districts due to extreme temperatures during summer. After that successive governments continued with the service till 2009.
