Andhra Pradesh Circle
Sub; Declare ‘UGADI’ as Holiday in place of ‘HOLI’-reg.
I am to submit the following for your consideration and favourable orders. You are aware that ‘UGADI’ is a Telugu New Year Day ‘ and is celebrated by one and all throughout the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. This year ‘UGADI’ is falling on Saturday the 21st March 2015 and same is not declared as holiday for the Postal operative staff. The Coordination Committee of CG Organisations might have not considered ‘UGADI’ as holiday as the same is falling on Saturday and as it is regular holiday to all Central Government administrative offices.
The vast section of Postal Operative staff work 6 days in a week including Saturday. As the ‘UGADI’ festival is falling on Saturday , the Postal Staff has to work even though it is an important festival. We suggest that the HOLI on 6TH March 2015 may be treated as working day in lieu of ‘UGADI’ holiday on 21st March 2015.
We request you to kindly give due consideration to this issue, and order holiday on 21st March 2015 so as to enable operative staff to celebrate in ‘UGADI’ festival.
There are occasions when Chief Postmaster General has taken action to change holiday in such circumstances.
We request your immediate intervention and order favourably.
