Hello All !!!
Is this final ? Have the companies already declared as Holiday on 31st May for Bharath Bhand or the companies decision is waiting for 30th May ?
How are these days treated ? Will this become a compensatory working on weekends or this goes out of employees accrued leaves ?
Kindly update.

Staff who do who donot want come to work can apply leave. No official holiday. Those who manage to come to work even late due to disturbance delay can be condoned.

Today, due to increase in the price of petrol has led to affect common men's life. this will also led to increase in the price of diesel, food, transportation, GAS, taxi fare, Auto fare and by all means. So i think each one of us should protest against the rise of petrol and be in favour of bandh.( its my point of view)

Hi Nisha. As of now none of the companies are declared Holiday. If need for employees safety then you shall declare as holiday and can work on some other holiday. :)

our company (management) is not even aware about the Bharat Band, think how the buggers will manage the things.
30th May 2012 From India, Gurgaon
Dear RAVI, I completely agree with you... still they are not aware of public which has lot of power... i think this is the time to show them.. Honestly

Dear All, I think we should not participate in bandh because it is totally politics, when election came we should change the govt only
30th May 2012 From India, Calcutta
Is this "Bharat Bandh" a solution ? The intelligency is in understanding the exact reasons
behind hike in price of petrol (& in general of anything) and to take suitable measures which
are only in our hands instead of blaming the government and showing our anguish by participating in bandh like activities which are no way good for the nation.

1. there is no official announcement from any authority so far. And no one can issue such GO to close the office. Only thing is that if bandh is called for, then how the employees will commute is what the question. Those who are amply fuelled, will be able to attend. Others cannot attend to office. It is a call that an organization has to take.

2. Leave this holiday subject. Why you people make such a hue and cry on this petrol price hike? A lot of people 4 days back were vociferous about the recent petrol price hike. Today what happened? People are running from pillar to post to fetch petrol. Government is playing tactics of not supplying the fuel to the petrol outlets. This is intentionally done (is what my gut feeling says). Petrol manufacturing companies are ordered not to make any despatches, I think. when there is no supply, stocks get depleted in the outlets, then obviously all will be in need of petrol. For the last 3 days, I am witnessing a serpentine queues in the outlets, due to shortage of fuel. there is an artificial demand created by the government with vested interests. Today due to shortage of fuel in the outlets, you (and I and other people also) do not mind paying extra penny to purchase fuel to fill up your tank.

Till recently you were vociferous against government condemning the hike, and today you (you I mean here is a general public) changed your mindset and do not even utter anything on the petrol hike. Your aim is to collect petrol "at any cost and any means". You do not mind waiting in a long queue even at 11.30 p.m. to fill up your half of the tank.

Now, you were in hungry to collect petrol, you do not mind paying even Rs.100/- for a liter. I see a lot of cars waiting in a big queue. How the change has come? Government played a trick that people who shout at petrol price hike will automticlly will run for petrol (whatever may tbe price) if the supply is stopped (may be temporarily). By this tactics, you have forgotten the core problem and your concentration got diverted to "demand for fuel" in the market. THIS IS WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT. YOU CANNOT DO ANYTHING ON THIS. It is to fill up few multimillionnaires' cash box, Government may be joining hands with them.

It is your right to do bandh, hunger fast, etc., probably, Govt. may reduce a rupee or two, which is peanuts. Whenever there is price hike, all these political parties do bandh - they do this to project they are against this; but in reality they form part of a big network.

Therefore understand the reality. It is again an attitudinal problem of certain people with an ulterior motive and nothing else.

Hi All,
I have just relocated myself to a different city, and the everyday transportation cost is actually affecting my kitty savings. On top of that , now that the petrol prices have increased , it will hit big time for people who avail local transportation means.
For me , this bandh should be supported by all, even who owns a car ( the costing is going to be sky-high for them as well)

Some companies have decided to declare a holiday tomorrow and compensate on working on the next following saturday which is 9th June. Our Company is still deciding on declaring a holiday or not. My thoughts are if BMTC, Auto's and Cabs are going to ply tomorrow there should be no need to declare a holiday. Those interested in protesting are free to protest, others who do not want to protest I'm sure the cops are geared up to take action against any violence. Those who still dont want to come to work can either work from home or apply for leave.

We must support the BANDH, but the thread is more emphasizing the LEAVE issue. Let’s our management decide about tomorrow.
30th May 2012 From India, Calcutta
On 31st all means of transport are going to run smoothly, bandh will be there by UPA Govt, certain parties are also supporting.
30th May 2012 From India, Mumbai
Dear All,
Rather than standing for or against the notion of what the Govt is doing, our main query is how do we as HR's go about ensuring the Business functioning for our employees.
Do we actually declare an off for our employees and make them work on a off day keeping in mind the employee and Business Infrastructure safety issues or do we actually continue working as a regular business day??
I feel at least in Bangalore (though it is an opposition run Govt) it would not be as serious as other part of the countries. So, I feel that it should be a normal work day as usual.
Would any one care to give more insights on the same?
30th May 2012 From India, Bangalore
Hi RNS, The Bandh was called for by the opposition party NDA over the fuel price hike. Regards, Ashwin
30th May 2012 From India, Bangalore
Hi fellows,
I still could not understand why everyone is insisting so much on declaration of a holiday for
tomorrow's bandh. Why can't we do our usual routine work as any other normal working day ? Supposingly it is declared an off, then what CREATIVE you guys are planning or going to do ?
So better carry on doing your work with honesty and sincerety and whosoever want to show the protest, may wear a black band on his/her arm....but in no case we should be a part to stop the pace of our nation....because at the end of day "bandh" will effect every citizen of this country in some or other ve-r-ry bad ways to which we need to understand without being prejudiced.
30th May 2012 From India, Phagwara
hi, Even if its a bandh or no bandh our organization doesn’t follow these norms we are working full year....excluding national holidays, no vacations nothing.....:(
30th May 2012 From India, Pune

Public pahle Apna power khud jaan le .... phir Sarkar ko realize karaye :p yaha to bhed chal wale log hain. :p

For the companies who have declared holiday today shall be working on this saturday... well we (in Shapoorji Pallonji-EPC, Kolkata) are working today. ofcourse we came office in casual dress. Attendence is mere 60%...
31st May 2012 From India, Calcutta
Bandh will not be useful tool to show of public strength. If we really fed up with present government, please let me know who should be given powers. I believe who ever is in power, will do the same thing for their own interest. If public wants to show their strength, they should show in ELECTION only.

Ajeet, these are side efects of democracy.....better to say democracy where illitracy prevails....lets wait for next 25 years as thigs are chaginging slowly things will improved for sure....its a slow process but for sure..

Dear Manoj, I wish and pray to GOD that your dreams come true- no matter- if it comes after 25 years.

Dear friends,

One thing is very clear, whatever is the reason, every opposition party resort to bandh etc. irrespective of whether it is warranted or not, success or failure. In India there is no bar. Every party use this weapon. The fun is, the ruling party of a state itself support the bandh in their own ruled state when the opposite party rules at the centre.

Coming to the real matter- different companies follow diff. methods to tackle. Those estts. which takes the responsibility of running their own system of pick up and drop doesn't declare holiday. In which case those who are absenting either allowed a special CL or debit to Cl/EL or even mark them absent. Those estts. doesn't undertake pick up & drop normally treat the day as bandh paid holiday. Some estts. also treat this day as holiday work and those who attend are paid holiday wages (extra). Some estt. mark absent for absentees. Generally no leave is accepted on bandh day excepting the prefix &/or suffixing days also applied for leave. To avoid any complications most estts. award compensatory holiday/off duty on any other future day only for those who attends. It's all depends from estt. to estt. there is no act or law which gives mandatory guidelines on bandh days.

I'm interested to know how estts. in West Bengal and Kerala deal this matter, as SC judgment is on cases referring to these states and Bandhs are banned (? really).
