Karnataka news live: Bus strike in state from today, govt rules out pay revision talks – The Times of India


Nearly four months after disrupting the public transport network for three days, thousands of Karnataka transport corporation employees go on an indefinite strike from today seeking revision in pay. Shutting the door on negotiations, the government on Tuesday said it would strictly deal with the strike and ruled out implementing recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission. With Covid-19 cases spiralling, the Karnataka government on Tuesday issued an order mandating private hospitals in the state to reserve 50% of their beds for treating Covid-19 patients referred by public authorities. According to the new order, the government’s price cap for Covid treatment in private hospitals varies from Rs 5,200 to Rs 10,000 per day if a patient is referred by a government authority to a private hospital. In such cases, the cost is borne by the government. Stay with TOI for all the latest updates:
