HYDERABAD: Around 15,000 contract employees working in various state government departments would be regularised soon after June 2, the state formation day. The regular employees can also expect transfers.

According to sources, the file relating to the transfers of state government employees, which has been pending since two years, due to bifurcation of combined Andhra Pradesh, has been circulated. Those working on long standing basis at one place can expect transfers.

Meanwhile, at a review meeting held at the Secretariat on Tuesday, chief secretary Rajiv Sharma directed the secretaries of various departments that the list of eligible contract employees should be sent to the finance department latest by Saturday.  This is to enable the finance department to issue letters to individual contract employees regularising their services.

According to sources, around 15,000 contract employees were eligible for regularisation. The state government had already issued a GO and constituted a high level committee for regularisation of contract employees.

As per the guidelines, each department will follow rules of reservation and send the list to the finance department.

Around 40,000 contract employees were working in the state government. However, the services of those working in societies and corporations would not be regularised. Those contract employees working in various government departments would be regularised.

TS TO ADOPT PUNJAB MODEL: Meanwhile, during the review meeting, the chief secretary wanted the officials to study the Punjab model where furnishing affidavits were not mandatory for around 33 services. In Punjab, marriage, non-marriage, obtaining duplicate ration cards and other services, people need not give affidavits from the notary. They can simply issue self-declaration. The affidavit rule should be followed forthwith in Telangana too, he said.
