3-day leave for employees to vote in panchayat polls
The state govenrment has accepted a proposal in this regard given by the State Election Commission (SEC).
The Panchayati Raj department has directed all District Collectors to declare the polling day as a holiday in places where polling takes place.
Polling will be held on February 13,15,17,19 and 21.
State government employees will have to apply to their higher authorities to avail the three days leave facility – one day before the polling day, one day on the polling day and one day after the polling day.
