HYDERABAD: The indefinite non-cooperation agitation launched by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) pressing for introduction of Telangana Bill in Parliament is set to worsen the financial problems of the State.

Revenue collections, mostly in the form of sales tax, excise tax, Road Transport Authority transactions and stamps and registration fee was been hit badly on Thursday and Friday. Besides revenue receipts of power distribution companies, APSRTC, civic bodies and others were also hit for the second successive day on Friday.

Loss of revenue on account of non-cooperation in Telangana was over Rs. 150 crore everyday. It is likely to exceed Rs. 200 crore everyday towards the end of the month as remittance of taxes by traders and commercial concerns is generally high during the last 10 days of every month, official sources stated.

Administration in the districts has been worst hit. Work in collectorates, other district offices, mandal revenue and mandal development offices has come o a standstill as the employees continued to boycott duties after turning up at offices and signing the attendance registers. “The agitation had a telling effect on the administration”, president of Telangana Employees' Association Vittal said.

However, work in the Secretariat and other State-level officeswas less affected with about 25 to 30 per cent attendance of staff in spite of cooperation of employees hailing from other regions with the ones from Telangana, TJAC leaders admitted.

Telangana agitators staged protests in front of Central government establishment across the region on Friday seeking support of the Central staff to their agitation.
