The Deputy Secretary.
Government of India
Ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions.
(Department of Personnel and Training).
I would like to draw your kind attention towards OM dated 3rd July 2023, on the subject cited above.
Vide para 3.1 of the OM, list of 12 “Optional Holidays”, are mentioned out of which 3 Holidays are to be selected by the Central Government Employees Welfare Coordination Committee at state Capital. It would be quite relevant to mention here that Raksha Bandhan and Bhai Duj are important festivals of Western and Northern India and are celebrated with full fervour and gaiety.
Therefore, the Confederation of CGE& Workers requests you to kindly arrange to include festivals of “Raksha Bandhan and Bhai Duj ” in the list of Optional Holidays in para 3.1, so that the same could be considered by the Central Government employees welfare coordination committee, which could be beneficial for Employees of Concerned States.
