When there are so many campaigns all around asking us to cast our vote I ever wonder why do such concerns raise instead the firms encouraging their employees to do so. Isn't it kind of a CSR for all the firms?
And for Archana, why dont all you ppl get together and put it across as a concern to your heads unitedly so that you receive some action.
And what Jiya has said is practical. Can compensate it by working on some other occassion.

There is an amendment in the Representation of People Act 1951, Sec 135-B was inserted and it states that effective 1st August 1996 " Every person employed in any business, trade, industrial undertaking or any other establishment and entitled to vote at an election to the House of People ot the Legislative Assembly of a State shall And Parliament, on the day of poll, be granted a holiday. Therefore it is mandatory on the part of the employer to grant paid holiday to employees who are entitled to vote for election.

In view of 15th Lok Sabha election, the polling day on 13.05.2009 (Wednesday) Tamil Nadu government has declared as public holiday. Employees of our institute attending duties on that day are eligible to take Compensatory Off.

You can compensate election date holiday with off by checking whether he/she is present on off day or not.

when government has declared holiday than it has tobe given, there is no other choice, if u break the rules & someone from ur company gives complaint would be a serious matter. so that better to better to declared a holiday.

On citehr we many a times have given our opinion that this is to be decalared holiday with pay as per section 135 B of the Representation of Peoples Act. As per this Law we can not compensate this hoilday & rest depond upon you.There are managements who are through their HR members are saying that they will not follow the law of land. Now it is upto the ECI that how they will implement it. Do what ever you deem fit.
