Now employees of IT companies working in Special Economic Zones will be able to work from home completely by December 2023. The central government has given information about this. Actually, the government has changed the rules of Special Economic Zones (SEZs). After this amendment, IT/ITeS units working in these zones can allow their employees to work from home till December 31, 2023. However, some conditions will also apply in this.
Which employees will be involved?
The Ministry of Commerce said in a notification that a unit can allow its employees to work from home or work from any place outside SEZ.
According to the notification of the Ministry of Commerce, this decision includes those employees who cannot come to the office for some time, who are traveling or who are working offsite. It has been told in the conditions that the owners of SEZ units will have to inform the development commissioner of their zone. And according to their letter of approval, they will have to operate from the company’s office only. Companies who want to move towards work from home in future, will have to inform them through email from the date of start of work from home.
The company will have to keep the list
It has also been said in the notification that there will be no need for the company to give a list of employees who want to work from home or work from any place outside the zone. But the company will have to keep that list with itself.
According to the notification, to work from home, employees will have to provide laptop, desktop or any other equipment. The work for which the employee has been allowed to work from home has to be done in accordance with the services approved for the company and should be related to the company’s project.
Let us tell you that last month a survey has revealed that the number of such Asian companies who wanted their employees to work from offices has decreased during the Kovid-19 epidemic. According to a Bloomberg report, the US-based education non-profit organization Center for Creative Leadership has conducted a survey, in which this thing has come to the fore.
