Indian Civil Servants must inform of menstrual cycles

From the WTF Files:

Women civil servants in India have expressed shock at new appraisal rules which require them to reveal details of their menstrual cycles.

Under the new nationwide requirements, female officials also have to say when they last sought maternity leave.

Women civil servants say the questions are a gross invasion of privacy. One told the BBC she was "gobsmacked".


What, are the head honchos worried these civil servants are going to get pregnant and go on maternity leave?

Officials were unavailable for comment. Surprise.
