HYDERABAD: The State Human Rights Commission issued orders directing the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to reinstate contract workers who were removed from work.

The order was issued on Thursday by SHRC secretary D Subramayam recommending that about 1,475 workers who were removed from work, be provided jobs within a month from the date of the order.

The GHMC did not file any report for the petition filed by the petitioner (P Bhaskar and others of Telangana State Municipal Employees Labour Association). GHMC Counsel sought adjournment and extension of time on the ground that matter was pending with the government. The commission did not see any justifiable grounds to grant any further adjournment and treated that GHMC has no counter-petition.
