Ya all corporates are allowing holiday for Election. This was the circular that i have sent to my employees.
As you are aware General Elections and State Legislative Elections in 2009 are round the corner. Since every citizen should cast their valuable vote, holiday has been declared by our company, based on the day of polling, as announced by Election Commission. A circular is attached herewith with the scheduled holiday dates.
Karnataka (Bangalore) - 23-April-2009
Maharastra (Mumbai) - 30-April-2009
Gujarat (Ahmedabad) - 30-April-2009
Tamilnadu (Chennai) - 13-May- 2009
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 notification shall be carefully read before you implement holiday because you will witness that all shops and hotels are functioning normaly.....
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.
