HYDERABAD: Even as the Andhra Pradesh State Government Contract, Outsourcing Employees Federation is demanding that their services be regularised, the State government, while ignoring their demand, has extended their contract up to September 30 only.
“These orders are strictly limited to those services, including those personnel that were taken up by the departments with the prior concurrence of the Finance Department,” the State government said in its order issued in this regard. The State government on Sunday issued a GO extending the contract period of all those staff, who are working as contract and outsourcing employees, in various government departments, universities and municipalities in the State. Actually, their contract ended on December 31, 2014. However, it was extended till June 30, 2015, and now again it was extended up to September 30.
According to the order, the State government after a review of the prevailing manpower requirements, especially in the light of the fact that final allocation of State cadre employees has not been completed by the competent authority, decided to permit all government departments to extend contractual/ outsourced services for another three months.
