Assam Govt Employees To Get Leave to Spend Time With Parents, In-Laws

Guwahati: The Assam government has granted two days of special casual leave in November for its employees to spend time with their parents or parents-in-law, said the Assam Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) on Thursday.

Employees without parents or parents-in-laws will not be eligible for these special leaves, it added.

“The Assam government, under the leadership of CM Dr @himantabiswa, has declared special casual leave for state government employees on November 6 and 8, 2024, to spend time with their parents or parents-in-law,” the chief minister’s office said in a post on X.

The leave must be used “solely for spending time with aging parents or parents-in-law to honour, respect, and care for them, and not for personal enjoyment”, added the post.

The leaves can be availed along with holiday for Chhat Puja on November 7, second Saturday holiday on November 9 and Sunday on November 10, the CMO said.

It said that employees in essential services can avail it in a phased manner, and those who do not have parents or parents-in-law will not be entitled to it.

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in his first Independence Day speech in 2021 had declared these two special casual leaves for government employees for spending time with parents and parents-in-law.
