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.
