Bhubaneswar:16/7/21:All departments of the state govt and sub-ordinate offices in Odisha will function with the full strength of employees from Friday.
An order in this effect was today published by the General Administration & Public Grievance Department.
“Most of the employees are now fully vaccinated and are required mandatorily to attend office regularly. In case any employee has been unable to get vaccinated for medical or some other compelling reason(s), s/he must apply for an exemption to the Head of Office. On receipt of such application, the matter can be considered on a case-to-case basis. Employees who are neither vaccinated nor exempted would not be permitted to attend office w.e.f 16th July 2021 and their absence will be treated as willful,” read the order.
“ In case of detection of COVID infection case in any Office, the protocol issued shall be followed and be reported to concerned Head of Office,” added the order.
