Hyderabad, Sep 24 (UNI) Conceding the demand of employees unions, the Andhra Pradesh Cabinet today decided to henceforth take action against employees concerned after completion of probes in cases relating to disproportionate assets and complaints filed against team by individuals.

Concerned over ''inordinate delay'' in disposal of cases registered by the Anti-Corruption Bureau and the Vigilance Department, the Cabinet took this decision, Information Minister A Ramanarayana Reddy told reporters after a Cabinet meeting, here.

However, in the case of those trapped by ACB sleuths, the employees concerned would be immediately placed under suspension and criminal cases registered against them.

The Cabinet also fixed a time-limit of six months for disposal of cases filed against employees, he said.

Acceding the long pending demand of Anganwadi workers and Anganwadi helpers, the Cabinet decided to enhance state share of honorarium by Rs 300 and by Rs 250 per month respectively. The decision would cost the exchequer an additional financial burden of Rs 24.45 crore.

Henceforth, the Anganwadi workers would get honorarium of Rs 1700, including the Centre's share of Rs 700 per month, while the Anganwadi helpers would get Rs 700, including the Centre's share of Rs 250 per month, he added.
