DEAR ALL, During this COVID-19 situation in my company one incident happened. One of our employees come to the office & because of illness, he went home. Now as per state govt. guidelines what we should do? can we consider it as paid leave eg. sick leave or we have to paid full-day present without deducting any leave?

You can ask the employee to avail all his full quota of leave for his absence from duty so that his salary can be paid till exhaust of his leave.
You can consider pay full-day present without deducting any leave, this is a good thought but would create a precedent. You can do this some other way by extending financial assistance, at present this is a lone case but the cases can be more due to this pandemic situation.

The new regulations provided by the state government requires you to pay full salary and not to terminate any person who has contacted covid on account of his work place. However, this is applicable only in certain specified employment, so please have a look at the Breaking The Chain notification of April 5, 4, and 9.
Also note that this applies only to those who got infected at the work place and not those who were infected at home.
in all other cases, you may proceed in the normal method of using the sick leave. It may be better to pay the person in spite of not having sick leave so as to encourage him not to come to work when he is not well (and possibly infect others). However, that is entirely a decision of the company management.
