Dear All, Regarding weekly holiday act i have a doubt on it. if the national holiday occurs on the weekly holidays means should the organization should give a extra day leave on working day ?

Dear Niroshkanna
I am enclosing the weekly holidays act, 1942 & Negotiable Instrument Act, 1881 for your ready reference.
Normally the Holidays List will be given by the Government and the respective companies have their own option of declaring the holidays, after selecting the holidays of their own choice, the company will submit the copy of the Holiday list for the year to the Labour Commissioner Office. This list will have around 38 to 40 days out of which the company have to select as per their requirement from 8 days to 11 days and in Government it will be 21 days as National Holidays and Festival Holidays.
Further any emergency leave due to Strike, Bandh, Harthal, Death of National Leaders, Elections, Due to Natural Calamity, etc will be covered under Negotiable Instruments Act.
Hope I have cleared your doubt.

Dear ganeshzine,
If you are having recognized union please take an approval from that Recognized union / majority of workers & submit the same to Factory Inspector / Director with reasons mentioned why do you want to change the weekly off.
This application should be sent to Factory Inspector before 15 days of such effective date
