AP govt’s key decision on new PRC to employees!


The Andhra Pradesh government has taken a key decision on extending new PRC (pay revision commission) pay scales to state government’s employees and pensioners on Monday (today).

The AP government did not respond to the major demand of the AP government’s employees to release PRC report so far. But, the government has now decided to hand over PRC report to employees unions by 6 pm on Monday.

Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy himself will hand over PRC report to employees unions by 6 pm on Monday.

The secretaries committee on new PRC will meet CM YS Jagan and submit PRC report to the CM by 5 pm on Monday.

After holding consultations with the committee, the CM will release the PRC report to employees unions.

The CM will hold consultations with employees unions on Tuesday and announce new PRC and quantum of fitment (hike on basic salary).

The employees unions are demanding over 45 per cent fitment but CM Jagan is reportedly in favour of 30 per cent fitment which is on par with Telangana government’s PRC announced in April this year.

Andhra employees to launch agitation over demands


Government employees in Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday announced a series of agitation programmes to press for their long-pending demands, including implementation of the Pay Revision Commission recommendations.

The employees’ associations served notice to the state government, urging it to immediately act on the outstanding issues.

Leaders of the AP Joint Action Committee and the APJAC Amaravati met Chief Secretary Sameer Sharma at the Secretariat and served notice.

They expressed their displeasure over non-fulfilment of assurances given to the employees in the past.

APJAC leader Bandi Srinivasa Rao told reporters that though the government claimed to be employee-friendly, the assurances given by it on various occasions were never fulfilled.

Blaming the government for this situation, APJAC Amaravati leader Bopparaju Venkateswarlu lamented that it remained indifferent to their issues.

The leaders wanted the government to act on their demands before their agitation enters the second phase. They said it was unfortunate that the government has not fulfilled the promise to take a call on implementing the Pay Revision Commission (PRC) report by October end.

They submitted a five-page notice listing out the agitation programmes. They told reporters that the Chief Secretary assured them that the issues would be addressed by December 7.

The associations said the government owed at least Rs 1,600 crore to employees in the form of provident fund, general life insurance, leave encashment, and other benefits.

Release of pending dearness allowance, regularisation of contract employees, abolition of contributory pension scheme, streamlining of employee health cards and hike in salaries of outsourced and other contractual staff are among the key demands of the employees’ associations.

The leaders said though the PRC submitted its report more than three years ago, the government has not done anything except giving 27 per cent interim relief.

They found fault with the government for not even giving them the PRC report. They made it clear that the recommendations of the PRC should not be diluted and the employees should get a revision of 55 per cent.

They also took exception to certain remarks made by Finance Minister Buggana Rajendranath Reddy and alleged that he is trying to create a wedge between the government and the employees. They said Reddy never discussed the PRC report with them though it has been the tradition that the Finance Minister discuss the issue with the employees.

As per the agitation programme submitted to the government, all employees would attend work sporting black badges from December 7 to 9 in all offices.

Lunch hour demonstration will be held on December 10. Protest rallies will be organised in all talukas and revenue divisions on December 13. Dharnas will be staged across the state on December 16 and in all district headquarters on December 21.

The leaders also announced that regional conferences of employees will be held at four places including Visakhapatnam, Tirupati and Eluru from December 27 to January 1.

Jagan govt cheated us, say AP govt employees unions, fix Nov.30 deadline!


The Andhra Pradesh government employees unions have made sensational comments on YSRCP government headed by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

The AP employees unions JAC (joint action committee) on Saturday (today) said that they were cheated by YSRCP government on new PRC (pay revision commission) pay scales.

The JAC has fixed a deadline of November 30 for Jagan government to take a decision on implementation of new PRC pay scales.

The JAC has decided to convene a joint meeting of all employees unions on November 28 to decide the future course of action if the Jagan government fails to respond on their demand on new PRC pay scales by then.

JAC chairman Bandi Srinivas said that all employees unions supported YSRCP in 2019 Assembly polls looking at Jagan’s manifesto which promised salary hikes and new PRC pay scales.

But they were cheated by Jagan government as new PRC was not implemented even after YSRCP government completed half of its five-year term so far.

Employees unions are angry at government not even releasing PRC report and keeping the report as a top secret.

They said they sought PRC report on October 29 itself and the Chief Secretary Sameer Sharma has promised to give the report in two days but failed to give even today.

Why they are hiding PRC report, the unions questioned.
