MSRTC gives re­lief to staff sus­pended over miss­ing do­cus

The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI - STAFF REPORTER

The Ma­ha­rash­tra State Road Trans­port Cor­po­ra­tion (MSRTC) has ex­tended the date of sub­mis­sion for typ­ing el­i­gi­bil­ity and MS-CIT cer­tifi­cates for all those can­di­dates who have been em­ployed by the trans­port body on com­pas­sion­ate grounds.

An MSRTC of­fi­cial said that this would pro­vide re­lief to over 100 of the trans­port body’s em­ploy­ees who were not hired for fail­ing to sub­mit cer­tifi­cates.

The au­thor­ity had sus­pended sev­eral can­di­dates who failed to pro­duce valid cer­tifi­cates within the given time frame of two years upon be­ing se­lected for the job.

“The trans­port min­is­ter has is­sued fresh or­ders of­fer­ing re-em­ploy­ment of sus­pended can­di­dates upon pro­duc­tion of cer­tifi­cates,” said an MSRTC of­fi­cial.

Sev­eral can­di­dates se­lected by the MSRTC suf­fered af­ter they were sus­pended for fail­ing to pro­vide the cer­tifi­cates af­ter which they failed to meet the norms.

“At least 25 per­sons have sub­mit­ted the cer­tifi­cates and were re­in­stated. Many oth­ers will ben­e­fit by the fresh or­der. The ex­act num­bers are be­ing col­lated,” said an MSRTC of­fi­cer.

There were many cases which in­volved them hav­ing ap­peared for ex­ams but were yet to re­ceive their cer­tifi­cates.

“Th­ese per­sons’ ex­pe­ri­ences will show the gap in the au­thor­i­ties’ records. How­ever, the pos­i­tive point is that they will not lose their jobs,” added the of­fi­cial. The el­i­gi­ble per­sons have been asked to sub­mit the doc­u­ments at the ear­li­est.
