Abolition of VRO posts questioned

Hyderabad: A two-judge bench of Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice C.V. Bhaskar Reddy of the Telangana High Court on Tuesday adjourned a batch of petitions questioning the abolition of village revenue office posts.

The petitions contended that the post was created to maintain village records and that the government was abolishing it in the guise of information technology.

Advocate P.V. Krishnaiah, appearing for one of the petitioners, contended that the government failed to conduct a hearing and that the legislature did not have the right to abolish the posts created as per Presidential order under Article 371 (D) of the Constitution.

Advocate Chikudu Prabhakar, appearing for another petitioner, contended that the approved rights of the petitioners were taken away by the act. The bench adjourned the matter for further hearing to October 31.
