Immediate implementation of 5 days week

This petition had 1,258 supporters

Hi All

We know that all govt. Offices around the country are enjoying the privilege of 5 days week except banks and LIC.  Meanwhile Banks from last year have managed alternate Saturdays off whereas LIC has not been able to make a breakthrough regarding this. LIC management has submitted the proposal of 5 days week to Ministry of Finance in 2015, but latest RTI reports say that it is still under examination. Now the question is how much time is required for any ministry to pass a proposal??? Isn't it normal for us to get curious after 2 yrs??? Shall we just keep quiet and accept this delay in silence.

Now coming to more practical problems, we the Class 1 officers of LIC are posted far and wide across the country and 99% of us are posted away from home therefore we invariably require 2 days leave to cater to household requirements, family requirements, health care etc. Senior officials have accumulated enough leaves to scrap through these kind of situations by their prolonged service and the ministry officials fortunately dont have to face this. We on the other hand are working more, delivering more and bearing the brunt of high expectations as well as being deprived of weekends in most cases without complaint. 

I think now the time has come for us to unite and stand against this delay and raise our voices so that we are heard.

We have nothing against the organization or the management, we just wish to be heard. This petition is just a voice which we are raising to the management and Ministry of Finance to make our problems vocal and to let them know that we need 5 days week immediately for a healthy professional and personal life.
