Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao has decided that there shall be 7 (SEVEN) Zones and 2 (TWO) Multi zones as a part of the Zonal system in Telangana State. Announcing this in a review meeting the CM said that the Zonal and Multi-Zonal system has been formulated to benefit the employees of Telangana as well as to see that the earlier injustices in the United State are not repeated.
The CM said that the decision of the Government is in tune with providing adequate benefits to those living in their local areas and also against the backdrop of formation of small districts. Following the formation of Telangana State and subsequent reorganization of districts raising their number to 31, it has become all the necessary to reorganize the zonal system also. Against the background employees and teachers associations who met the Chief Minister have submitted their proposals on the formation of the zonal system.
The CM held a high-level review meeting on these proposals at Pragathi Bhavan on Thursday forenoon. The zones and multi-zones have been finalized and have been announced by the Chief Minister.
It has been agreed that a meeting will be held on Friday forenoon in TGO Bhavan to discuss the decision of Government on the division of 31 districts in the State into 7 (SEVEN) zones and 2 (TWO) multi-zones and inform the employees’ other issues that came up for discussion with CM. After the meeting, their views will be conveyed to the Chief Secretary based on which concerned note will be prepared to the Government on the formation of Zones.
Later Cabinet will meet to consider the proposal and after the Cabinet’s approval to the zonal and multi-zonal system, it would be forwarded to centre for President’s assent. CM said that he would personally monitor the entire process and will see that the new zonal and multi-zonal system comes into effect in Telangana at the earliest.
