WFH employees should not leave city, says Delhi govt circular

New Delhi: Many departments of the Delhi government have issued circulars stating that the employees, who are working from home, should not leave the city without prior permission from their supervisors and must be available on phone and WhatsApp.

Last week, Delhi government had allowed 50 per cent employees to work from home as a precautionary measure to check the spread of coronavirus in the national capital. 

The government had issued WFH policy for the employees of the departments which are not directly involved in Covid-19 management. The provision was not applicable to bureaucrats and employees engaged in coronavirus duties.

“The officials allowed to work from home will remain available at any time, as and when so required, on phone, WhatsApp, messages and email. Any official allowed to work from home may be called to the office, if required,” said the latest circular which was issued to departments such as women and child development and social welfare.
