Larvae found in the food served to MSRTC employees

A recently reported incident left the State Transport (ST) employees in shock after they found larvae in the meals served to them. As per reports, similar complaints were made earlier as well, however, actions were not taken by the corporation. But the irked employees have now demanded cash instead of packed meals and the issue has gained momentum again. Currently, around 300-400 employees from the Kolhapur and Sindhudurg districts are staying at Malad-based 'The Hotel Royal Palm' hotel.

The incident was reported on Sunday, November 1, when the staff returned to the hotel after a day-long duty. Food was served thereafter, and the staff found larvae in the meals. The employees complained regarding the same, but their anger was further aggravated by the lack of help from senior officials.

The staff pointed out to the administration, following which the ST Corporation immediately cancelled the meal contract and directed the officials to provide good quality meals. They further instructed the supplier to take a note stating that such incidents should not repeat again. ST corporation's PRO further informed that the concerned officials have instructed to investigate the matter and submit a report.

Employees stated that despite several complaints the situation had not changed and this escalated when they started serving meals in a buffet manner. The supplier was then caught by the staff as larvae were found in the food.

The ST and BEST administration is carrying the burden of helping millions of commuters every day, as the local train services remain unavailable for the public. These buses, on a daily basis, are very crowded, and despite the COVID-19 scare, the corporation does not provide necessities like masks and sanitizers. To add more, the employees had to face issues with meals and snacks, and these issues have only worsened their experience.
