One man Commission on Telangana employee grievances

BS Raikote, retired judge, AP High Court, who has been appointed as one-man commission would examine and consider the representations received from the T employees associations, employees and government agencies and suggest corrective action and remedies to the government.

The Commission would suggest modifications in the existing rules and Government Orders relating to implementation of Presidential Order within its framework and also suggest feasible policy level interventions for making implementation of Presidential Order, more effective and transparent.

The appointment of a One-Man Commission follows an agreement reached between the Telangana Employees Joint Action Committee, teachers and workers and the State government on October 24, 2011.

It may be recalled that the employees belonging to the gazetted and non-gazetted officers of different associations in the Telangana region went on strike for 42 days from September 13 to October 24.
Born on October 7, Justice Raikote did his MA LLM from Karnataka University, Dharwar. He joined the law practice in 1965. He was elevated as Judge of High Court of Karnataka in February 1994 and then transferred to the Andhra Pradesh High Court in March 1994.

Employee leaders welcome the decision

Welcoming the appointment, Employee JAC leader G Deviprasad thanked the government for appointing a non-local justice to look into the violations that took place in the implementation of the Presidential Order, as agreed between both parties on October 24.

We hope that the eminent judge will soon start his work and identify the irregularities that occurred in the implementation. Those who violated the Order should be punished, said Deviprasad. [The HANS India]
