What kind of work you are bound to do, depends on the employment agreement or appoint letter issued to you by the Govt. when you joined. If there is any clause that your employer can assign you to other projects also, then you have to follow the orders.

You can contact me with the details for further clarification at:

As per facts posted by you, your appointment for a particular project but under the guidance/supervision of BDO. You problem is for the present period wherein you do not want to do the assigned duty other than your project.


As per me, in this emergency period of COVID-19, every Indian is a soldier and he should offer his services even if not assigned and this is your good luck that you are being asked to collect certain data sitting in your office. The denial to do your duty may resut permanent inconvenience for you. Projects remain temporary but if a person has to get his name repeatedly for this and coming projects then he should not defy the lawful orders of his bosses.

Yes, mr rajkumar I should do as u say, but i think u dont know the fact is, the permanent staff who reside sarround the office, they not ask for attend. and boss making orders one after one and more on us, they ruined our life without hike salary.
