Bhutan Times - - Home - Sonam

The Chair­per­son of the Women, Chil­dren and Youth Com­mit­tee Karma Dorji and mem­ber of the par­lia­ment from Druk­jey­gang Tseza of Da­gana pre­sented its re­port on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of res­o­lu­tion of the Na­tional Assem­bly passed dur­ing the 5th and 6th ses­sions of the 2nd Par­lia­ment. The com­mit­tee re­ported im­ple­men­ta­tion sta­tus on 5 items of res­o­lu­tions and made five rec­om­men­da­tions to the house for ap­proval. There was long de­lib­er­a­tion mainly cen­tered on the is­sues con­cern­ing the im­pact of 6 months ma­ter­nity leave and its im­ple­men­ta­tion across cor­po­rate and pri­vate sec­tors.

Fi­nally the house en­dorsed only the rec­om­men­da­tion on the Min­istry of Labour and Hu­man Re­sources to co­or­di­nate with the pri­vate sec­tors and cor­po­ra­tions in cre­at­ing aware­ness and in find­ing win-win path­ways in im­ple­ment­ing 6 months ma­ter­nity leave rule in the pri­vate busi­nesses.

The house was ad­journed with the Speaker, on be­half of the Na­tional Assem­bly, ex­press­ing his gratitude to the 100 women at Tak­ila who par­tic­i­pated in the tree plan­ta­tion of 49,718 trees to­day on this very aus­pi­cious day of corona­tion of Druk­gyel Zhipa.
