The situation as mentioned in the post , it will be better to discuss between employees/Union vs Management and may allow some employees to go for leave on 11th & 12th Aug,2022 after agreement between the parties.

It is to be uderstood that if majority of employees seek leave in advance or belatedly after being absented form work can be cnstrued as a act of illegal absentention /bycot from work and denial of leave o such occasions will be in order, Further the employer can initiate disciplinary action aginst such employees as per provisions of certified standing orders .
As a pro active measure , you can restrict leave being availed by employees en masse by an appeal to employeees. It is also open to have an agreemnt with the union/employees representatives as regards retriction in number employees to granted in the interests of running the operations without much of damage,

Employees need to apply for leave and the leave needs to be specifically granted.
Leave on a particular day is not entirely a right.
However, it is possible that people will still be absent and will give a doctors note stating they were unwell.
So it is better to be proactive and discuss the matter with the employees, may be by offering incentives to some who agree to not take leave and to encourage the team to mutually agree who will work and who will be able to take leave.

But if the employees are planning to avail leave en masse, it should be curtailed and management can appeal to employees (by putting a notice in the Notice board) .
