One of the government employees who is a parent of children with 40 per cent or more such disabilities will be given relaxation in working hours, the government said in a statement here.
A maximum of 16 hours of total working hours in a month will be allowed to one of such employees, it said.
This is in addition to the concessions currently granted to government staff.
