BANGALORE: In order to keep its official machinery on its toes to tackle the prevailing drought, the state government is mulling to bar its employees from availing leave till the situation eases.

According to highly placed sources in the state government, the government is expected to issue an order in this regard in a day or two as the situation is getting worse by each passing day with no signs of rains or showers in the immediate future.

The government has been mulling over the idea for the last few days and it had even asked the deputy commissioners to take a call on sanctioning leave to the employees based on the situation.

Now, with the situation becoming alarming, the state government has decided to formally issue an order.

Meanwhile, Kolar Deputy Commissioner Manoj Kumar Meena has already issued direction to the heads of the respective departments in the district asking them not to sanction casual leave to their employees till April 31 barring medical and other emergencies.

Meena told Express that the ban has been imposed as the situation demanded and the employees were also cooperating with the district administration.

“The ban is being strictly imposed in the departments which are directly involved in the drought relief works,” the Kolar Deputy Commissioner added.
