Mumbai: The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has decided to reinstate employees who were terminated due to their alleged participation in the strike two weeks ago. MSRTC employees were on strike for three days from June 7 to June 9. During the strike, MSRTC faced a loss of about Rs 36 crore due to revenue loss and damage of buses. The MSRTC found some of the temporary employees were on strike and did not attend their duty. Some were caught while damaging the buses. 

After calling off the strike, the administration decided to terminate the service of  temporary employees as they couldn’t attend their duty for 180 days and also decided to recruit candidates from the waiting list. After this, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray assured terminated employees that they will be reinstated. Thackeray directed Transport Minister Diwakar Raote to withdraw the decision of termination of employees and reinstate them. According to the directives from party chief, Raote instructed the managing committee of MSRTC. 

The administration of MSRTC issued a notification on June 25 to recruit them again. The terminated employees will be appointed from July 1 as new recruits. Whoever were terminated due to charges of participation in the undeclared strike will be given new appointment letters on July 1.
