The government offices in Rajasthan runs from 9.30 am to 6 pm, for five days a week. Looking at long working hours, there was a demand for creche facilities in government offices from employees. ‘ We were demanding this as the number of female employees is increasing in the government. It is not the question of only female employees but male employees whose wife is a working woman will also be able to avail the facility,’ said Tej Singh Rathor, the general secretary of the government employees union in Rajasthan.
