The grant of this concession should not result in any dislocation of work. In the case of Muslim optional holidays, the number of persons permitted to avail of optional holidays should be regulated in a manner so that adequate staff is available for the proper continuance of the work. The optional holidays are denominational and may be allowed at the discretion of the Head of Office, provided that work does not suffer.
