The Telangana state Cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy, has made significant decisions, including changing the vehicle registration prefix from ‘TS’ to ‘TG’ for Telangana. The change will apply to new vehicles and all official correspondence.
The decision to replace ‘TS’ with ‘TG’ is seen as a rectification of the initial gazette issued by the Centre at the time of Telangana’s formation in June 2014.
In addition to the vehicle registration change, the Cabinet decided to implement two more guarantees, which were not officially disclosed.
However, sources suggest that the guarantees might include the sale of LPG cylinders at Rs 500 each and the provision of free power for up to 200 units.
Chief Minister Revanth Reddy will make a statement on these guarantees during the upcoming Budget Session of the Legislative Assembly.
The Cabinet also approved changes to the Telangana Talli statue and the Telangana government emblem.
The Telangana Talli statue and government emblem were initially designed by the previous government. The specific nature of the changes was not detailed in the report.
Further decisions by the Cabinet include upgrading 65 government ITIs to Advanced Technology Centres to offer skill-based courses, approving the allotment of 100 acres in Rajendranagar for a new High Court complex, identifying vacancies in various departments for Group 1, 2, 3, and 4 posts, filling agriculture officer vacancies, and formally approving the caste census promised during the Assembly poll campaign.
The government will table a Bill providing legal sanctity to the caste census in the budget session. The Cabinet also authorized the formulation of guidelines for awarding remission to convicts and approved the establishment of the Kodangal Area Development Authority (KADA) for the overall development of Chief Minister Revanth Reddy’s home constituency.
