KCR lauds SCCL workers

Chief Minister Mr. K Chandrasekhar Rao on Thursday announ-ced a bonus of Rs 1,00,899 to each worker of the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL), a public sector undertaking.

While making a statement in the Assembly, Mr. Rao said that this is a bonus given by the state government to the SCCL workers and employees as a Dasara festival gift.

He said that in the development of Telangana, the SCCL is playing a very crucial role and that the SCCL has been strengthened institutionally due to the cooperation extended by the state government and measures taken for the welfare of the workers.

He said “It is a proud moment for all of us when the SCCL fared better than Coal India in almost all parameters related to coal management in the country.”

He said that the state government is of the firm opinion that the key role played by workers, often keeping their lives at stake, is important in the SCCL’s continuous victory and success.

Mr. Rao added, “Our government feels that the sweat and blood that each and every SCCL worker shed in creating the national wealth, often coming out of jaws of death, is no way inferior to the sacrifices of our own army personnel fighting at the borders.”

Mr Rao explained that in the financial year 2013-14, the SCCL was able to produce 50.47 million tonnes of coal and for the last five years, the production of coal has been on the increase every year.

He said “This year, I am happy to announce that we are increasing the percentage of profit share by another one per cent to 28 per cent! By increasing the share in profits, each worker will now get Rs 1,00, 899 as bonus; this is Rs 40,530 more than the last year’s bonus.
