It is to bring to your kind notice that this month of October 2020 is the month of Festivals. Navratri and Dura Puja will start from 17″ October 2020 to 24″ October 2020 and Dussehra will be celebrated on 25th October 2020.
On earlier occasions, Bonus used to be declared by the Govt. of India before Durga Puja every year but this time it has not been declared yet.
All these festivals are celebrated throughout India.
This will be the third week of October 2020. The pockets of almost Govt. Employees will be empty and they will feel hardship financially to celebrate these festivals.
It is therefore requested to kindly cause orders to make payment of Salary/Wages and Pension to the Central Government Employees and Pensioners before Durga Puja and Dussehra as was made at the time of Onam festival in Kerala and Ganesh Chaturthi at Maharashtra so that they can celebrate the festival happily.
An early and positive action is highly solicited.
(R. N. Parashar)
