Hyderabad: The Telangana state government will move the Supreme Court against the High Court orders dismissing the “Voluntary Retirement Scheme on Health Reasons” introduced by the Singareni Collieries Company Ltd. to fill hundreds of posts with wards of its existing employees.
Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who reviewed the HC judgement with officials on Thursday at his camp office, directed them to engage the services of senior lawyers to fight the case in Supreme Court.
The TRS government took the decision to give dependent jobs to wards of existing workers in SCCL. Accordingly, a notification was issued inviting applications for jobs.
The HC on Thursday dismissed the notification. The Chief Minister said that it was decided to give dependent jobs to the families keeping in view the hard work and difficulties the workers and employees go through.
