NAVI MUMBAI: NMMC commissioner, Abhijit Bangar, has ordered that all civic officers on Covid duty will have to work continuously seven days a week, without taking any holidays, in order to fight the pandemic.
Talking to TOI, Bangar said: “In order to break the covid chain, I have taken the decision today that all the NMMC officers will have to work without even taking the weekend offs.”
A civic PRO further informed that around 150 officials will be covered by this latest, unprecedented order.
Activists have welcomed this tough measure to fight coronavirus. “Perhaps for the first time in Maharashtra, the officials of any municipality will be working 24×7, to tackle a pandemic. This is a good move as I am sure work will be done more efficiently in the sphere of public health due to this,” said city activist, Anarjit Chauhan.
