Staff Side stated that as per the existing instructions on the subject of holidays to be observed in Govt. Offices, the employees are entitled to avail any two holidays as Restricted Holidays in addition to the 14 compulsory holidays and three holidays decided by the Central Govt. Employees Coordination Committee in the State Capitals. However, the employees working in the Industrial Establishments are eligible for 16 holidays in a year including 3 National Holidays. The employees of Industrial Establishments are thus deprived of one holiday. Apart from this, various Ministries, are not allowing two days Restricted Holidays for the employees working in the Industrial Establishments, especially under the MoD. This is a clear discrimination, since the Govt. of India instructions on this subject do not prohibit RH for the employees of the Industrial Establishments. In view of the above, it is demanded that the employees working in Industrial Establishment may also be given 17 holidays and 2 Restricted Holidays.
Reply of the Official Side:
It has not been found feasible to grant the facility of RH for employees working in the Industrial Establishment as their entitlements are different from Central Government Offices. It was informed that this view had been conveyed to General Secretary, AIDEF vide letter No. 6/6/2007/D(Civ-II) dated 14.01.2013.
