When it is declared as paid holiday, maximum comapnies have declared compansatory working day, I think it is not the good sign. Som
Thanks Mr.Malik for the notification......most of the companies are not aware about this...and many of them have kept the offices open on the Election day !

Government may declare Holidays applicable to the Public Sectore and Government Sector only. But private sector this Government Circular is not applicable hence you have to abide by the relaxing time to cast vote.

In Maharashtra, the Labour Commissioners have issued notifications making it mandatory for all companies registered under Shops and Establishments Act to declare a paid holiday on election days. Hence it is NOT only government and PSU organizations that have to declare a holiday for elections.
Dear Ravi,

I faced this situation in my first job.

Your employer will ask you a question why you declared Holiday? Because is not authorised holidays if he come to know that other industries and organizations were working on election day with some time relaxation to cast vote you will be in soup.

This means all Hotel, Restaurents and Shops and Offices will remain closed is amezing and abnormal..........

This notification shall be carefully read before you implement holiday because you will witness that all shops and hotels are functioning normaly.....
