Other than banking, transport and other key services are also likely to be disrupted in many states due to this nationwide strike call.

The government has warned central trade unions of “consequences” if they go on a proposed 24-hour nationwide strike.

“Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action,” an order issued by the Ministry of Personnel said.

In its order, the Ministry said government servants were prohibited from participating in strikes or protests. All the senior officials have also been instructed not to sanction any leave to the government officials and employees.
