Dear Ms D.B.Sridevi,

Re: Forcing employees to work on Sundays in violation of Labour laws Ref: BD- 10RP/1/2024-BDMD-DOP dated 01.03.2024.

I understand staff members like PA/PM/MTS/GDS are asked to work on Sundays also to complete targets relate to PM Surya Ghar Yojana.

The staff members including delivery workers are already overburdened and imposing additional work load that too on Sunday leaving them in lurch without rest even for a day is unethical and illegal.

Even they have not been imparted training and they have not been supplied with mobile handset also for operating through app. Though circular states about "willingness" in reality they face severe pressure from officials to use their own mobile handsets.

I am informed that many employees organisations have also raised this issue.

Hence I would request you to withdraw above instructions and advise to ensure holiday on Sunday for the workers concerned.

Hope you would respond positively at the earliest.
Thanking You
Your's Sincerely
