No salary would be given to government employees without Covid-19 vaccination certificates!
A move by the Government of Punjab that had to happen someday as we are not prepared for the highly contagious virus called Omicron. India has so far reported over 210 cases of Omicron variant cases and almost 90 people have recovered according to the Health Ministry.
Who knew coronavirus disease(Covid-19) an epidemic could become a global pandemic! When you talk about normal people, people hardly believed that they could be infected.
The government had to put up with lockdown and restrictions to tackle the spread of the virus. Almost everything was at a loss as the spread had left economies and businesses stranded.
Many IT businesses have conducted mass-vaccinating their personnel to ensure that they are protected from Covid, while also preparing them to return to work. Most MNC employees have already received their first round of vaccination, and some have also completed their second dosage.
No Salary Without Covid-19 Vaccination Certificates
Now the Punjab government has issued a new order stating that no salary will be paid to government employees who do not have Covid-19 vaccination certificates, a step that will assist the state’s vaccination programme against the virus.
To get the wage, a government employee who has been fully or partially vaccinated against Covid-19 must upload the certificates to the state government’s job portal.
It went on to say that if they don’t, they won’t be able to earn their salaries.
Where To Upload The Vaccination Certificates?
The vaccination certificates must be uploaded to the iHRMS website run by the Punjab government. The software automates the payment of salaries and the withdrawal of retirement benefits.
