J&K ready to release pending salaries of SRTC

Jammu and Kashmir Government today said it was ready to release the pending salaries of State Road Transport Corporation, provided they come forward with "positive attitude" and urged them to call off their strike.

"Government is serious about the difficulties and problems of SRTC employees, but they should come forward with positive attitude," Transport Secretary K B Jandial told Public undertaking committee of legislative assembly here.

He said that government has already assured the employees of the corporation that five months salary will be released and expressed hope that the employees will call off their strike immediately.

SRTC employees are on an indefinite strike over past nearly two months and have recently submitted their resignations en masse under voluntary retirement scheme as a protest demanding one-time settlement of their dues.
