Employees, who worked for 10 years in the Telangana State Housing Corporation Limited (TSHCL) and having worked for projects such as Indiramma Housing, are now without a job.  As many as 1,179 outsourced employees were unceremoniously sacked by the State government at the end of financial year 2015-16 with a promise that they would be absorbed later in other projects but are still waiting to hear from the government.

Their contract ended on March 31 and the employees were promised that they would be part of the 2BHK project. In spite of several representations and with no response, the workers are now in stage with angry  and with money scarcity.

.K Shekar Reddy, general secretary of Telangana State Housing Corporation Outsourcing Employees Union, says, “We served the corporation for more than 10 years but today we are left in lurch. We were promised permanent jobs at the time of Telangana struggle. For the past five months, we have been struggling to make our both ends meet. Despite representations to eight Ministers, there is no trace of action.” 

“We feel cheated,” , “Not a single Minister is taking up the issue". Right from A Indrakaran Reddy, Housing Minister, to the Finance Minister, everyone seems to pass the buck to others. The Finance Minister had promised that the outsourced employees’ demands would be taken up after the formation of the State but nothing has been done. Ministers of every hue are now placing the onus on the Chief Minister,” he said.

The issue was later taken up with the TJAC chairman M Kodandaram, who wrote to Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma for finding some solution for this. He asked the government to consider request of the outsourcing employees on humanitarian  grounds.There was no result.

As per Industrial Disputes Act, those who worked for more than 180 days underground, or 240 days over the ground ,cannot be removed from their jobs.

The employees are from different branches which include 94 Assistant Engineers (Diploma Civil, B Tech and M Tech Civil), 179 IT Managers (MCAs), Data Entry Operators (graduation with computer skills), Junior Assistants, Accounts Assistants (commerce graduation with computer skills), 690 Work Inspectors. 

Their services were abruptly terminated, with assurance that they would absorbed in some other projects like 2BHK. 

Find a way and show the EQUIVALENT  job in any other sectors to make our lives happy.
