Thiruvananthapuram: The third meeting held by ministers Antony Raju and V Sivankutty with the management and employees' associations to discuss the implementation of single-duty system in KSRTC turned out to be unfruitful.

TDF and BMS stood firmly on their ground that 12 hours cannot be considered for single duty. The management also said that only eight hours utilised for working on the bus can be considered as duty. The legal advice of the Law Secretary was also considered in the matter which backs the conditions put forward by the management. However, this was not acknowledged by the employees' associations. The ministers said that the conditions put forward by the management have to be accepted for the government to grant financial help over this matter. This led to the meeting ending in stalemate.

Though minister Antony Raju said that CITU accepted the conditions put forward by the government, the union denied it. The leaders said that though it is accepted by the law, the single-duty system is not effective.
