As many as 770 employees of power utilities in Telangana, including engineers, senior accountants, and accountants are enjoying salaries without doing any work for about three years now since AP and Telangana governments could not settle disputes arising out of the nativity/residence of these employees.
The average salary of an employee working in the power utilities is said to be between 75000 and 85000 a month. Several of these employees have moved to the high court and got a stay on their allotments. However, they were denied promotions.
Both the state governments are sharing the salaries of these employees. Three years of bifurcation, there is no logical conclusion to this issue. Both the governments sought options from their employees, both governments rejected their option in a majority of cases and made allotments against the choice of the employees.
