Kochi: The Kerala High Court directed over 400 workers of the State Road Transport Corporation today, who have availed a long leave and taken up jobs abroad, to rejoin duty within one and a half months.
Over 400 employees belonging to various categories have taken a long leave from the loss-making corporation and have taken up jobs abroad.
The KSRTC Managing Director had recently issued an order directing them to rejoin duty by June 1, failing which their services would be terminated.
Challenging the order, the affected employees had moved the High Court, seeking more time to rejoin work.
When the case came up today, Justice Anu Sivaraman granted them one and a half months to rejoin duty.
