During the festive season, railway employees in Chakradharpur division will not get leave on private medical certificate (PCM) . The said arrangement will remain effective till 31 December 2023.
The Assistant Personal Officer of Chakradharpur Division has issued an order in this regard. During the festive season, most of the employees want to take leave so that they can celebrate Durga Puja, Diwali, Chhath and other festivals with their families.
There will be problems in the operation of trains due to festive holidays.
For this, employees apply for leave. Those who got leave celebrate the festival with family but those who did not get leave adopt other means to go on leave. According to Railway officials, the tradition seen in the past is that employees take leave on the pretext of illness and at the time of joining duty, they submit a private medical certificate of illness from a doctor. If all the employees take leave in this manner during the festive season, there will be problems in the operation of trains.
