Resp. Sir,

Reg.: Five days a week working in administrative offices of the Central Government

After taking over of new Central Government led by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, there is whispering about reverting back to six days a week in place of the prevalent five days week working in the administrative offices of the Central Government.

In this connection, it would be worthwhile to mention here that five days a week working was introduced way back in the year 1985 after prolonged deliberations at National CounciI(JCM)’s level when Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi was Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, taking into account various aspects, including energy saving in the form of electricity in these offices. This was, however, done keeping in mind the total number of working hours per week as per the provisions of HOER, which, of course, is statutory provision under the Act.

Staff Side, though hope that the new Central Government would not be inclined to change the existing system of five days a week working, which is beneficial for both the administration and the employees, nevertheless, if need be, this matter be discussed with the Staff Side threadbare.

Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
