FITE also stated that as per section 135 B of the Representation of the People Act, every person employed in any business, trade, industrial undertaking or any other establishment is entitled to vote at an election to the house of the people or the legislative assembly of the state and no wages should be deducted of any such person for granting this holiday. If any employer contravenes the provisions given in this section then such employer shall be punishable with fine.

FITE has also submitted a list of IT companies in Pune who are denying employees paid leave. Pavanjith Mane, president, FITE Maharashtra said, “We have received a lot of complaints from IT employees in the past four days and hence, we have written to the labour commissioner.”

Elavarasan Raja, general secretary, FITE Maharashtra, said, “The issue is not only in Pune. We have received complaints from IT employees in Maharashtra, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai. It is the responsibility of employers to let employees exercise their right to vote.”
