Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court  has refused to stay the operation of GOs 317 and 377  dated 6 December 2021, on allotment of staff to New Local Cadres Guidelines – ie, allotment of persons holding posts that are required to be organized into local cadres.

The state has taken up an exercise to reshuffle practically the entire lot of 2.50 lakh employees as per the brand new zonal system within the state.
The division bench comprising Chief Justice Satish Sharma and Justice  Tukaramji made it clear on Tuesday that it would not issue any interim order without hearing the state government`s contention.

 

The court  issued  notices to the government directing it to respond within 4 weeks in the batch of writ petitions filed before it.

The bench was dealing with the batch of writ petitions filed by 226 teachers, secondary grade teachers and  school assistants working in various government ZPP and MPP high schools scattered in different districts like Ranga Reddy, Khammam, Warangal etc, challenging the decision of the Telangana government  in building the local cadre in respect of the posts under state government, to be organised with the posts of district cadre.

 

Petitioners submitted that the GOs defected the principle behind Article 371-D of the Constitution and the Presidential orders.  They submitted that  they will be deprived of equitable opportunities as the erstwhile 10 districts were allowed  to retain their previous status without being bifurcated. They also submitted that, with the GO 317, the Status of  Local Candidate lost its significance and more weight was given to seniority in the matter of allotment.

Counsel for the petitioners urged the court to keep the GOs in abeyance. However, the court did not agree to this and said it would issue directions and the allotments will be subject to the final outcome in the writ petitions.
