A total of 114 employees who had 10 years of experience were regularized on February 4. Now the extension of contract is initiated in order to regularize other staff who were not included among them.

Thiruvananthapuram: As the employees who were appointed in C-DIT (Centre for Development of Imaging Technology) through illegal means cannot be made permanent, there is a move to extend their contract to five years. Action was initiated to extend the contract of the employees including 12 staff in the chief minister’s IT Cell.

A total of 114 employees who had 10 years of experience were regularized on February 4. Now the extension of contract is initiated in order to regularize other staff who were not included among them. The pro-LDF association in C-DIT had demanded that the expired contract should be extended for five more years.

The government supported the demand and action was initiated in this regard. Contract is not normally extended for five years in public sector companies and quasi-governmental organisations. However, they are trying to issue the order extending the contract before the election notification is issued.

According to the current conditions, temporary appointments are made for only 179 days. Contract appointments are allowed for upto one year. However, they are trying to make contract in C-DIT violating rules in favour of the association.
