Thiruvananthapuram : Salaries to KSRTC employees shall be complete in 2 days stating today, said Transport Minister Antony Raju. Responding to media question, the minister said KSRTC revenue would not suffice to make salary remittances and that government helps in this respect from time to time.

Discussions shall be held with trade union leaders on the 17th this month. Trade unions do not have major disagreement with the Susheel Khanna report, the minister said, adding that many of its recommendations are put to effect.

Meanwhile, KSRTC placed a request for Rs 103 crores before the government. Of this, Rs 50 is slated for repayment against overdraft and OD interests in arrears up to now. The remaining Rs 50 crore will go toward payment of July  salaries for staff.
