"The state government has issued a gazette notification regarding this decision which will benefit over 15 lakh employees working in the private sector," state Labour Commissioner KC Gupta stated in a statement here on Tuesday.

The decision was taken under the 100-day special scheme of the Labour Department and the government amended relevant laws after consulting industrial units and workers unions.

However, the decision will not be applicable to those employees who are working under various corporations and undertakings of the state government.
