Sub: Grant of holiday benefits to the GDS substitutes working in the place of regular staff reg.
Presently the GDS staff officiating in the temporary and long term vacancies of regular employees like postman and MTS etc., are allowed Sunday pay benefits if they work for six days in a week. But they are not allowed General holiday benefits although regular GDS who are eligible for holiday benefits are working as leave substitutes.
We are of the considered view that the aforesaid GDS substitutes are eligible for General holiday benefits on the anology of the benefit of Sunday as they enjoy Sunday had they work in their original posts. We enclose a copy of the latest clarification issued at Karnataka circle on Sunday benefit which is self explanatory.
Hoping early clarificatory orders in this regard which will be highly appreciated.
Encl : As above.
