UP Workaholic Has Taken 1 Leave In 26 Years, No Holidays For Diwali Or Holi Either

In times when people wait for long weekends to make their travel plans and go on a jolly trip with their family and friends, here’s someone who just took one single leave in a career of twenty-six years. Yes, you read that right.

A clerk who worked with Dwarikesh Sugar Industries Ltd. in Uttar Pradesh reportedly worked on Sundays, and holidays such as Holi, Diwali, and others. He only asked for one leave in the last 26 years during his association from 1995 to 2021 with the company. He was identified as Tejpal Singh.

While that’s probably whom you literally call a “workaholic,” Singh has now coined his name in the India Book of Records for his sincere commitment and dedication to work.

It was learned that despite the company annually offering a leave of 45 days as per their policy, the UP man decided to not avail of them, apart from a leave he took to celebrate his brother’s wedding festivities in 2003. He is a father of four children and an elder brother to two who reside with his extended family.
