Hi Ravi,
I guess....if we donjt work between 9 - 6.. we may not have the chance to go and do our personal work - like paying the bills (esp) :no:
So its left to the employee to manage the time well. When an opportunity to work is given, then people must make the best out of it and also dedicate good time for the family (after work)
Also, I guess employers give some option to take extra hour permission to do with immediate urgencies and also leave policies cater to their needs. Otherwise, its fine..
I see this as a viable solution :-)

U probably mis understood the term HR. Anyways, read my answer to ur post again. I have only mentioned that the employer is still doing its best to cope up with these needs of the employees.
There is nothing wrong in taking some personal time for a couple of hours off, once in a while. But lets not deviate from the topic.

An employee is basically working for an organizational improvement and profit, is he a machine?
no, so employee need to be given relaxation to take care of their personal exigencies also. If such a hard and fast rule like he should not be allowed to do his personal work, is imposed, none of the employee will show interest in the work rather get irritated.

Dear Ravi,
Doing personal work during office hours is looking awkward and hanging out the normal work schedule. Employee can manage there personal work smartly. For example:-
1) Do your personal work at the lengthy lunch breaks when no body notice your absence.
2) Use maximum plastic money (credit or debit cards) to pay bills or purchase.
3) If your work involves outdoor visits (marketing or field work) then you can manage it to do personal work at that time
4) Ask your neighbour or friend if they can help you out to pay kid’s school fees when they suppose to go for there own kids.
5) You can ask to some field executive to help you out.
Apart form that employees are eligible for 2 short leaves in a month (1 short leave = 2 hrs. ). He/She can do there work during short leaves. Casual leave is also another option of doing personal work when it requires more then 4 hrs.Hope this will help you a lot.

Your are correct Ravi but in this case Short Leaves and Casual leaves are more then enough to do personal work - what you think? Regards Pankaj Chandan

Dear Pankaj,
1) Since when lunch breaks are 'lengthy' enough to household works?
2) How does plastic money/ hard cash fit in here (untill we make online payments)
3) Do you think it is practically feasible to ask the field executive and neighbours to pay the bills, fee etc. in todays urban culture?
However, the 5day work is really helping us a lot.
Also the concierge service mentioned above is commendable.
