The State Government will shortly issue job announcements, however, indigenous people in Telangana are stuck in a quagmire after the Supreme Court invalidated GO MS No 3 in April 2020.

This was issued by the former Andhra Pradesh in 2000, giving local area tribes 100% reservation for teacher posts in schools located in scheduled areas.

A revision challenge has been filed in the Supreme Court by the Governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, as well as a writ petition by tribal’s opposing the ruling.

The paradox, on the other hand, has harmed tribal empowerment’s chances and prospects.

The dispute, which lasted two decades, was not effectively fought by the States, according to G Venkata Ramana, Telangana State President, AEWCA, and the topic of autonomy for agency areas’ as contained in the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution was overshadowed by the question of reservations.

Already non-tribals have occupied all land in Mandal headquarters of agency areas and tribals are not in a position to either get jobs or start their businesses. By keeping tribals away from even these class IV jobs, how can we hope for the development of indigenous people,” asked Prof Chidem Kishore Kumar from Osmania University in Hyderabad.
