The Gurugram administration has ordered all corporate offices to work from home on Friday amid heavy rain. All private educational institutions are also advised to close schools and colleges.
The District Disaster Management Authority, in an advisory, said that all corporate offices and private institutions are advised to guide employees to work from home so that traffic congestion can be avoided.
“In view of heavy rainfall prediction for the district Gurugram on September 23, there are chances of waterlogging and traffic congestion. Therefore, all corporate offices and private institutions in the district are advised to guide their employees to work from home on Friday so that traffic congestion can be avoided and repair works of roads and drains can be carried out smoothly by civic agencies,” it said.
Heavy rains lashed parts of Delhi-NCR on Thursday, leading to waterlogging in several areas. Visuals showed commuters wading through water-logged areas.
A traffic police advisory on Thursday read, “Due to continuous heavy rainfall in Gurugram, there is waterlogging at some places and the traffic is moving at a slow speed. Therefore, we request all of you that you should come out of the house only when necessary.”
More than 1,000 traffic police personnel were deployed across the city to decongest roads.
