KCR's shocker to RTC, pay Rs 452 crore transport tax!


With the deadline set for the striking TSRTC employees coming to an end, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has given a massive shock to the transport corporation through another deadline.

The Chief Minister has asked the RTC to pay the Telangana Transport Authority (TTA) tax dues to the extent of Rs 452 crores. Secretary of TTA, Mamata Prasad has served a notice to the RTC to pay up the amount under the head of transport tax and even asked them to "pay and clear the dues immediately."

According to sources in the Telangana government, said that apart from the TTA’s notice, the RTC also received another jolt from the Telangana High Court with regard to using of funds of the TSRTC Credit Cooperative Society (CCS) by the management of the RTC.

The ongoing strike of the TSRTC workers has entered into its 32nd day making it the longest strike since the formation of Telangana. Over 49,000 TSRTC employees are on strike demanding the government to look into their list of demands and fulfil them. After an intial few rounds of talks with the Joint Action Committee (JAC) last month, the government flatly refused to fulfil even a single demand of the striking employees.
