Since its a quite new system and as there is no law governing the Work from Home system in the country, it necessitates a comprehensive and robust policy and guidelines keeping into consideration all the related factors.

Likewise , many other states have asked people to do work from home by putting several restrictions . In absence of any guided policy, it will be extremely difficult to observe this policy. If every entity will draw its own rules for work from home , then it will lead to a situation of utter chaos and confusion.

It can be considered as the single innovation of the century which has the capacity of not only reducing the cost, saving of hours of man power energy and fastest execution of work.
