Thanks to KCR an old norm was revoked after 14 years, for heirs of Singareni employees, to inherit jobs. The coal mine employees in the age group of 48 years to 59 years, can apply for jobs for their heirs, including sons, sons-in-law or brothers. This had been in practice since long, but was terminated in 2002. With the intervention of KCR, Singareni Board chairman revived the old norm and passed orders to that effect. The new rule will be applicable from Dasara.
