Home Ministry introduces flexi-hours for its employees

The Home Ministry has allowed flexi-hours for it's employees with a maximum relaxation of two hours to attend social obligations or visit a doctor but they have to ensure a 40-hour work schedule in the week.

"In exceptional cases like consultation with doctors in Central Government Health Services, hospitals, attending social obligation, late arrival in the morning, early departure in afternoon up to two hours (maximum) will be allowed subject to the condition that prior intimation or approval of the immediate supervising officer has been obtained," Home Secretary G K Pillai said in an order.

The arrangement has been made after the ministry employees made two representations to Home Minister P Chidambaram on November 19 last year and March 3 this year.

Chidambaram had then assured the employees of working out a solution and subsequently asked Pillai to issue an order, sources said.
