The Chief Minister reminded again of the instructions given while launching Mumbai Local

‘Banks, private offices should work in different shifts by dividing the time. Work from home procedures should be followed. Even when launching Mumbai Local, it was said to remove the word ‘pick’. Why not twenty-four hours, instead of peak hours? It is possible to avoid congestion and stress on various systems by working in twenty-four hour divisions. Work with discipline. Take responsibility for employees in the workplace. Plan their meals and comings and goings. For this, a good SOP should be prepared and submitted, ‘said Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in a meeting held on Wednesday.
