Am aware that the Day of Election has to be a paid holiday per the Act. My question to you is, we are a company into KPO with Daily Deliverables to clients across the globe. In this situation, is there an option to run the shift during the polling time to meet the client's deliverables.

This is long pending debate whether a holiday is required on the day of election. In my opinion, it is absolutely waste of time to have a whole day to be declared as holiday.
In our earlier organization, we used to give two hours permission during that day. Employees have option to come 2 hours late in the morning or go 2 hours early in the evening hours. They can even go in the middle of the day too.
Why can't Government think to have this election on Sunday otherwise.

Come on Balaji
Its about choosing a leader or a group to decide our lifestyle for the next few years
their policies plans orders would definitely make a hell lot of difference
Having a day off would help to avoid unnecessary mis use of voting opportunity
to give an example my colleague came to work in Bangalore and went to vote at 4 pm and found someone has already used his chance. lets avoid this type of issues and vote.

The election day is not a declared holiday.
If you have alternate information, I would appreciate a link to the notification.
In any case, its not a national holiday so you can work on that day.
The law requires you to allow employees to cast their vote. Polling booths start at 7am. Anyone who needs to vote can do so at that time. We allow anyone who has voted (mark on finger required) to come in late by up to 2 hours.

Dear Antony
Yes, it is everyone's responsibility to select their leader. And it is the responsibility of the every citizen of India to cast their vote.
But, someone goes at 4.00 o' clock and finds his vote is already made, means this is system failure. We have no fool-proof system to check the voter is the authentic person. There is no gurantee in the current system even if you declare holiday that your vote has not been cast by someone.
It is a matter of paid leave declared for IPL and nothing more.

Dear Friends,

Government has declared April 13th as paid holiday. The labor department has announced to all the employers to declare a paid holiday on poll day as per section 135B of the Representation of People's Act. The same has been published in Hindu paper on April 06, 2011 - Page No : 4. Herewith am attaching the GO for your reference. However working on Election day is bit risky but again i see many companies who continue working.

Being a Paid Holiday, you are allowed to engage employees as per your need to work on that day. they can avail the leave on some other day as compensation. Also, they should be given permission for an hour or so, to cast their votes.

Dear All
Direction has been given by Commissioner of Labour – Tamil Nadu, it is mandatory on the part of every employer in Tamil Nadu to grant a holiday with wages on 17-Oct-11 and 19-Oct-11 to every person employed by them.
Therefore, the employers of Shops & Establishments are required to grant holiday with wages on date of poll to their employees entitled to vote at local body election.
