    we would like to draw your kind attention towards the state of Himachal Pradesh where situation of industry is very peculiar, since most of the industrial zones are located on the border district which are having boundaries with Punjab & Haryana. Most of their employees like workers, middle management, senior management and promoters are staying in adjoining areas like for Parwanoo industrial area in HP people are living in Kalka and Pinjore in Haryana, for Baddi, Barotiwala and Nalagarh industrial area in HP, employees are living in Kalka,Pinjore and some towns of Tricity like Chandigarh Panchkula and Mohali, Likewise for Ponta sahib in HP, people are staying in Kala Amb & Yamuna Nagar in Haryana etc. Though industries have been permitted to work with 30% workforce but even that 30% is also not actually available in these industrial areas due to restrictions of Inter-State Movement of these workers / employees as most of them are staying in adjoining towns of neighboring states. Besides this, most of the owners / entrepreneurs of MSME Units & senior officials of various large corporates, having units in HP but living outside these industrial zones are unable to reach their units to oversee the restart process. As such, this restriction on Inter State movement is proving to be counterproductive for the state of Himachal Pradesh for kick starting the industrial activity. On the other hand, there is pressure on industrialist to give full salary to its employees inspite of shut down operations, which is acting as addition of salt to the injury in these troubled times, especially to more than 1500 MSME Units located only in BBN Area of State of HP. Though as on date employees are keen to come back to work and operation of industries has also been permitted with all precautionary measures prescribed through various notification of government, but industry is not able to take the benefit of the same due to Ban on interstate movement of workforce. Keeping in view of the above situation an addendum is required to be issued to consolidated guidelines prescribed vide MOH order dated 15.4.2020 allowing interstate movement of workforce & owners, especially for industrial towns of Himachal Pradesh from adjoining areas of Punjab and Haryana with a defined SOP of Safety & Precautions (as suggested below) , so that industry can resume its working and is able to pay its dues to various Government Departments and Salaries to its employees. Suggestive SOP for Inter State Movement: For Workforce: 1. Allow one time passes to interstate workforce, subject to Unit undertaking for their stay within incoming Area after proper scanning at entry points OR If industrial units give undertaking to bring its employees from adjoining areas after scanning in a designated bus to their factory and from factory to their residence without allowing them to go anywhere else, then such movement of workforce may be allowed on Daily basis also. For Owners / Senior Staff: a) To issue movement passes in the name of unit and the number may depend on size of the unit with max. limit of 5 persons. e.g. for factory with employees up to 50, it can be for one person only, 51-200, for 2 persons, 201-500 for 3 persons, 500-1000, for 4 persons and above 1000 for 5 persons. b) May Allow these passholders from nearby towns or anywhere else to visit twice a week in a staggered manner. c) The pass such issued may be issued by keeping DCs of respective adjoining areas in loop so that they honour the pass issued by issuing state for such movement. d) The scanning at border of such pass holders into incoming state can be compulsory.
