Government staff in Chhattisgarh to follow 5-day work week

The state government has announced various incentives including increased contribution towards pension


To ensure increased productivity and efficiency, the Government of Chhattisgarh has announced a five-day work week for its government employees. The state government has also increased the contribution to the Anshdayi Pension Scheme from 10 to 14 per cent. This was shared by Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Twitter.

In addition, the Chattisgarh state government will also introduce a legislation that will make small commercial operations in residential areas legitimate. This move will be beneficial to the innumerable small businesses that have otherwise been operating uncertainly.

In order to create jobs, especially for the youth of the State, and also to ensure that the transport department remains accessible to the general public, the launching of several transport facilitation centres across Chhattisgarh has also been announced.

Another good news for government employees is that 10 per cent of plots will now be set aside for entrepreneurship development in OBCs. This is a result of amendments in the inter-industrial policy of ‘Contributory Pension Scheme’.

The ‘Mukhyamantri Noni Sashaktikaran Sahayata Yojana, that is, the Chief Minister’s Girl Empowerment Assistance Scheme, will lend support to the daughters of labourer families in the ares of education, employment, self-employment and marriage. The scheme will ensure that Rs 20,000 is deposited in the bank account of each of the first two daughters of labourers registered with the ‘Chhattisgarh Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board’.

Amongst other benefits that were announced, are the simplification of rules for issuing learning driver’s license and the establishment of safety cells for women in all districts.
