In anticipation of Friday’s expected rain, the district administration here has mandated that all private offices operate from home.
In an advisory, the District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) suggested that businesses and other private organizations encourage their employees to work from home to reduce the likelihood of gridlock.
The advisory warned that on September 23 there was a danger of waterlogging and traffic congestion due to the high rainfall forecast for the district of Gurugram.
Therefore, all district corporate offices and private institutions are urged to lead their staff to work from home on Friday to reduce traffic congestion and to allow for the seamless completion of repair works of roads and drains by civic agencies.
For the greater good of society as a whole, Gurgaon’s Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav tweeted, “Gurugram District Administration has issued advisory for all corporate enterprises, private institutions to allow their workers to work from home.”
Despite the persistent rain, traffic in Gurugram was not a problem. Some localities reportedly experienced morning traffic delays due to flooding.
The police have been called in to control the traffic.
