Dear Yatin
I am highly appreciating your approach for sharing provisions of the Punjab Industrial Establishment (National and Festival Holiday Act) to the Forum members. Apart from this the act is also applicable to the Shop and Commercial Establishments working in Haryana State.

Dear Members,
This is to clarify you that Punjab Industrial Establishments (National and Festival Holiday & Casual And Sick Leave) Act, 1965 as applicable to Punjab, Haryana & UT Chandigarh applies only to units which are covered under Factories Act & Plantation Act wherein in accordance with section 4 we are to allow seven CL & Sick leaves for 14 days in each calendar year in such manner & on such conditions as may be prescribed. Now in accordance with sec. 5 if the worker is not entitled to have sickness benefit under ESI Act or Sickness allowance under Plantation Labour Act then he shall be paid wages for the days of sick leave allowed to him under this Act at a rate equivalent to one-half of his average daily wage. This is further to add here that In Haryana, applicable Punjab Shops Act, 1958 itself allow seven CL & seven SL during the year (sec. 14(4).
