Parab said, “At present we cannot take the services of those employees who have been sacked. We appealed at least six times but they refused to return. Now his contract has expired and we cannot take him back to duty immediately.

Parab said, “Those who were suspended are being allowed to return to duty. We have also dismissed the cases registered against them. The strike has caused a loss of Rs 650 crore. The Transport Corporation was already facing financial troubles due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
