Well, that happened in Telangana with TRTC. 48k employees were sacked. Anyway, to be fair, govt. will offer VRS to non-workers. for IR, the scale would be high.
5000 per month is a joke, agreed. But min. wage for unskilled labour like helper, delivery boys etc. is at least 13000. For skilled, like electrician, wireman, plumber, welder, driver etc. it is much higher. At our sugarcane farms, cane cutters demand 1000 per day!
Pvt. trains will stop unauthorized travel, free travel/food/bed rolls for IR employees and their families. Pvt. trains will also make travellers feel safer without unauthorized vendors and beggars.
