What does 24 hours duty of Gazetted Officer means? Does it mean that a gazetted officer has sit 24 hours in office? If a Gazetted Officer is called now and then due to mismanagement of top authorities and it takes a toll of his/her health can he/she deny going to office? Whether a central gazetted holiday like Republic Day applicable to Gazetted Officer? Can he deny any work on this Gazetted Holiday and a work which is meant for labour? Please reply.
