Please do not take my observations personally. However I have some concerns. Please see my comments inline.
1)· Any change in route as a result of strikes/ Bandhs/ Rasta Roko/ Road repair/ Vehicle repair etc, should be promptly informed to the concerned Admin In charge.
Comment - Do not expect the employees to be aware of change in routes. Either the vendor who provides the transport / company admin should own up the change in route and inform employees as correctly mentioned in your next point.
2) Any deviation will be treated as violation of company rules and company will not be responsible for the safety of the employees in such case.
3) · Employees should inform about change in pick up one day in advance to the concerned Office Administrator . Any deviation in this regard will be treated as breach of company rule and the company will not be responsible for the safety and pickup or drop of that employee for that particular day.
4· Employees are not allowed to change the route while commuting to and fro from office for safety and security reasons. Any deviation will be treated as violation of company rules and company will not be responsible for the safety of the employees in such case.
Comment - In points 2,3 and 4 you are correct about the initial part of the guideline. Please go ahead and treat these cases as violation which can take the path of counsilling / corrective actions.
However; in no case can the company shed away its responsibility from the Safety of the employees. Statements like "Company will not be responsible for the safety" should be eliminated here. In case the employees do not obey the guidelines the best approach is not to avail the transport and its employees responsibility to come to office.
Otherwise you can intimate the immediate supervisor with an official report which in turn can demand action.
A company should take initiatives and invest time to inculcate discipline and build the culture which will avoid any deviations. However I reemphasize: SAFETY IS NOT OPTIONAL.
