Sub- Declaration of Holiday for Id-E-Milad (Birth day of Prophet Mohammed) on 24-12-2014 by CGE Welfare Co-ordination Committee, Odisha Circle in light of holiday decision taken by State Govt. of Odisha for the State, just yesterday night.
We want to draw the kind attention to the above holiday Id-E-Milad (Birthday of Prophet Mohammed), which has been declared to fall twice in year 2015 (Ref- the holiday list of 2015). The holiday for the same has been shown as 04-01-2015 and has already been availed by staff. The Id-E-Milad is again falling on 24th December 2015 and Odisha State Govt. already declared holiday on the very date and has been published in all local dailies. According to Rules under any change in dates of Muslim Holidays depending on sighting of the Moon, action for notifying holiday will be done by:-
i) The Ministry of personnel and Training, for officers in Delhi/New Delhi; and
ii) the CGE Welfare Co-ordination Committees or the Heads of Offices (where such Committees are not functioning) based on the decision of the concerned State Government/Union territories.
It has been collected that holiday for the same has been declared in the States like New-Delhi, Tamilnadu and in other Circles.
As State Government has declared holiday on the occasion for 24-12-2015, the matter may kindly be moved to the CGE Welfare Co-ordination Committee immediately for declaration of holiday to Central Government Employees of Odisha State on 24-12-2015 to avoid holiday deprivation and for correct implementation of Rules in letter & spirit.
IMMEDIATE RESPOSNE IN MATTER IS AWAITED.
