A day after the chief executive officer (CEO) of Noida and Greater Noida authorities issued an order to all staff members to reach office on time or face legal action, many employees on Tuesday were seen reaching their workplaces late as usual.

After chief minister Yogi Adityanath took oath on Sunday, he had said all government servants have to be punctual to office.

According to the rules, employees in the two industrial authorities have to reach office by 9:30 am and not leave before 5pm. The two authorities observe a five-day week.

On Tuesday, while some employees were seen reaching office on time, a large number reported late in both Noida and Greater Noida authorities.

“I conducted an inspection in various departments of the Greater Noida authority office and found that 25% of the employees were not present. They will be marked absent and will not get their salary for the day. I will take strict legal action if anyone is found violating the order,” said Deepak Agarwal, CEO of the Noida and Greater Noida authorities.

“We will monitor each and every employee in the two authorities and act against those found absent. Repeat offenders will face legal action as per rules,” he added.

However, most departments in the Noida authority’s administrative building in Sector 6 bore thin attendance on Tuesday.

The Noida authority has 1,583 permanent employees who work in Sector 6 and other offices located in sectors 19, 39 and 5. Each department head has been tasked with monitoring subordinate employees to ensure that they reach office on time.

However, a top authority official said, “Nobody in the office is in a mood to work seriously because they feel all top officials will be shifted. Once the new government makes it clear whether it will go ahead with the current set of officials or bring new ones, the subordinate staff will start work. Since this is a transition period from one regime to the other, the staff is not too enthusiastic about work.”
