Telangana state always tops in the country, becomes role model for other states, Telangana government is struggling to pay for their employees since mid-2002 and still the situation is not improved. This is ‘Golden Telangana’ state situation.

Being a government employee in Telangana is no longer simple. The days when working for the government meant having “peace of mind” and not having to worry about getting paid on time are long gone.

Salaries Situation

For the majority of the 3.5 lakh state government employees who are unaware of when their salaries would be credited to their bank accounts, the situation has gotten worse over the previous two years.

According to J. Vanaja, a government secondary school teacher from the Jangaon district, “Even the milkman looks at me suspiciously when I say I need time to pay the bill because I no longer receive my salary of Rs 45,000 on the first of every month.” “I can no longer afford to pay the rent or my children’s school fees on time. I’m used to upholding my promise as a teacher, but the current circumstance is making me feel bad,” she told #KhabarLive.

One class of citizens in the state, however, does not have to worry about receiving their paychecks on schedule each month. Despite being few in number—159 in total—these MLAs and MLCs serve as the voice of the rest of Telangana’s citizens.

The salaries of each of the 119 MLAs and 40 MLCs total Rs 2.75 lakh (including monthly accommodation allowance of Rs 25,000). Additionally, as long as they properly repay the initial loan, they are entitled for a Rs 30 lakh auto loan with no cap on how many times they can apply.

Present Scenario

This is true despite the fact that the majority of state government employees are now in default, including on their salary-related EMIs.

Except for those working in the districts of Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy, personnel are paid according to the alphabetical sequence of their district names. They receive their paychecks during the first week of the month, whilst other districts pay their employees’ salaries until the third week, in the order of the alphabet.

On condition of anonymity, a senior assistant at the Nizamabad district’s roads and structures department claimed that the delayed payment of salaries had a negative influence on his and other workers’ lives. Once upon a time, I used to get paid on the first of each month. We now anticipate receiving the pay at the very least this month, he said.

He continued by saying that it was disappointing and puzzling that the unions that stand up for government workers have been silent on this issue. He claimed that “the union leaders have lost all voice on the matter of delayed salaries.”
