Thir­teen per­ma­nent em­ploy­ees of NMMT — nine con­duc­tors and four driv­ers — have been sacked by the ad­min­is­tra­tion for ab­sen­teeism.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion had ear­lier sacked 212 con­tract work­ers for the same rea­son.

The ac­tion has been taken on the or­ders of mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe who has taken se­ri­ous note of ab­sen­teeism and in­dis­ci­pline in the trans­port body. “Those re­moved from ser­vice have been pun­ished for not re­port­ing to work for long. They have been black­listed. The ad­min­is­tra­tion has re­quested other pub­lic trans­port bod­ies to not re­cruit them,” said Mundhe.

It has also is­sued show-cause no­tices to 14 traf­fic in­spec­tors He said an in­quiry will be con­ducted against them and de­ci­sion on them will soon be taken.

Mundhe said, “I learnt that sev­eral em­ploy­ees in the trans­port body go on long leave with­out in­ti­ma­tion. These in­cluded con­tract work­ers as well as per­ma­nent em­ploy­ees.”

He added, “Pub­lic no­tice through the news­pa­per had been is­sued to 25 per­ma­nent em­ploy­ees. Thir­teen did not re­spond to de­part­men­tal in­quiry and hence they have been sacked.”
