Is your office located in Gurugram? But, you are working from home due to lockdown in view of coronavirus caused Covid-19 pandemic? Here is an important development for you. Gurgaon, which is part of the National Capital Region, is known as the millennium city and is home to many BPOs, MNCs and technology giants, including Infosys, Genpact, Google and Microsoft.
Amid coronavirus crisis, Gurgaon Metropolitan Development Authority CEO V S Kundu has said that MNCs, BPOs and IT enabled services (ITES) in Gurgaon may have to allow their employees to work from home till the end of July. Kundu, who is also additional chief secretary of Haryana, however, made it clear that this is his personal opinion and no such advisory has been issued.
Several real estate projects, including those of DLF, have got the green signal to resume construction but within the norms of social distancing, he said.
The Gurgaon district administration had issued an advisory in mid March asking MNCs, BPOs, IT companies, corporates and industries to allow work from home.
"As of now it appears this advisory for work from home will continue till end of July. All those who have offices in Gurgaon should continue to work from home to the extent possible," Kundu said, as per PTI.
Kundu, who is in charge of handling the COVID-19 crisis for Gurgaon district, said it is advisable that companies should ensure that as many employees as possible work from home. This might not be possible in the case of industries and the manufacturing sector but should be followed wherever possible, he added.
Later, the district administration also issued a statement. "It is only his personal estimation under prevailing situation that some staff in non-essential and routine offices in Gurugaon may have to work from home till July end and no such advisory or order has been issued by the govt." "The directions of the Central Govt and State Govt will be meticulously followed in Gurugram in this regard," the statement said, referring to Kundu's remarks.
