Telangana: Govt decided to regularise services of Panchayat Secretaries and utilise services of VRAs
Telangana state government has decided to regularise the services of Panchayat Secretaries and utilise the services of Village Revenue Assistants (VRAs) by deploying them to other departments in the state. After holding a high-level review meeting in Hyderabad last evening, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao directed officials to hold talks with VRAs and take their views into consideration.
Orders have been issued to regularize services of panchayat secretaries who have completed their four-year training by taking their performance into consideration as per norms. Those Panchayat Secretaries who have realised two-thirds of the targets set for them will have merit consideration in the present round, and District level committees will look into the issue.
Panchayat secretaries have been made responsible for maintaining cleanliness and greenery in the villages.
The government also decided to accommodate VRAs in other departments, like Irrigation, by taking their educational qualifications and abilities into consideration. A ministerial sub-committee was also constituted with ministers G. Jagadish Reddy and Satyavati Rathod under the leadership of Minister K Tarakarama Rao for this purpose
