Increasing number of working days for public and private sector employees.

If the Indian Partyfor Development and Democracy were in power, the government would restore the old system wherein government employees, employees of banks, factories etc. worked for 6 days in a week, but for shorter periods i.e. about 7 hours for 6 days against 8 hours for 5 days in a week at present. This is to ensure that the production of goods and services is increased and also work culture is nurtured. The productivity of the employees in India is at present low compared to employees in other developing countries like Vietnam. Further with higher number of holidays in a week, employees’ interests are diverted and they tend to spend time even in offices in discussing politics, films, sports etc. Deep knowledge on politics, films, sports etc. is not a virtue to be acquired at the expense of office work.

The IPDD government would also not facilitate employees spending time on internet while in office.At present most of  the employees have access to internet and this not only takes time from office work but also diverts the attention of employees from office work.

In the name of seeking people’s views on various issues, the central government is making people to spend more time on internet and less time on work. It is high time the government reviews its policy in this matter.

Simple ways for faster economic development

Some of the measures which PDD government will undertake with very little investment for faster economic development in India are:

  1. Increasing the working hours  of all industrial, commercial, government and other employees from around 8 hours to 8.1/2 hours a day. This will result 6% increase in production in manufacturing sector, increase in value of services etc.
  2. Increasing the retirement age from around 58/60 years to 65 years. This will enable each person to increase his contribution to  GDP by over 15%.
  3. Providing opportunities to those already retired to work either from home or from factories/offices
  4. Introduction of more machinery in agricultural and plantation sectors which, suffers acute labour shortage. Tractors were introduced a few decades ago. Large scale introduction of harvesters, planters, weeders etc should be undertaken.
  5. Encouragement for handloom sector should be given up. Power loom sector should be encouraged in view of labour shortage in spinning, weaving, knitting and ready made garments sectors.
  6. Reducing minimum age for employment
