K’taka circular asks women employees not to loiter around
The Secretariat of Karnataka Legislature has issued a circular directing women employees not to “unnecessarily” loiter around.
The circular has also asked officers and employees to practice discipline at work and warned them of action against gathering in groups, talking loudly on mobile phone and unnecessarily walking in the corridors during office hours in the Assembly.
It <g data-gr-id="18">says</g> “some officials and employees of this Secretariat are still found gathering in groups, talking loudly on <g data-gr-id="17">mobile</g> phone, and women employees unnecessarily walk in the corridors during office hours. This type of behaviour will not only disturb official functioning but also reflects indiscipline.”
Referring to an earlier circular issued in 2011 that warns of action against such activities considering it as “disturbance to official functioning and indiscipline”, the Secretariat on May 21 has issued the fresh circular in this regard. It has also called on the officials and employees to cooperate in official
activities by following “self- discipline”.
