New Delhi: The Delhi government on Saturday ordered work from home policy for 50 per cent of its employees, excluding bureaucrats, in government offices and departments. The order is not applicable for employees working on the frontline of Covid-19 management.
The government also advised the private establishments to follow the practice as far as possible because of the surge in the Covid-19 cases in the national capital.
“The remaining staff will attend up to 50 per cent as per requirement to be assessed by heads of the departments concerned (remaining 50 per cent of the staff will work from home) till December 31, 2020, or till further orders whichever is earlier,” stated the DDMA order.
Revenue minister Kailash Gahlot tweeted, “DDMA has decided to reduce the number of government employees attending office at the same time, it has been decided that in respect of officials lower than Grade 1, only 50% of the strength shall attend office. Private offices are also advised to stagger timings & presence of staff.”
