2. It has been seen that the 2nd wave of COVID-19, starting mid – April and continuing till now has impacted a large number of people in the country. However, unlike a nationwide lockdown last year, lockdown during this year has varied throughout the country based on the severity of the 2nd wave. Due to this there is a likelihood of number of contractual, casual and outsources staff such as house-keeping staff etc. being required to stay at home for various reasons, which under normal circumstances, would result in deduction in their pay/wages. In order to avoid any undue hardships under the prevailing extraordinary circumstances, it has been decided that wherever any such contractual, casual and outsourced staff of Ministries/Departments and other organizations of Government of India, is required to stay at home due to state wise lockdown imposed by States/UT Governments or otherwise as deem fit by the competent authority, they may be treated as “on duty” during such period of absences and necessary pay/wages would be paid accordingly.
