An important office memorandum has been issued by Dopt related that the Child Care Leave for Women employees...
The latest DOT Order says that only after exhausting Earned Leave (EL) can avail CCL...!
When EL comes to an end only the CCL will start…! That is, all the Earned Leave exhaust from her account only after she may take to eligible for CCL.
On recommendations of sixth pay commission, the CCL was announced to help women employees to take better care of their children and family. But the privilege backfired to several central government departments being like a hill with applications from women employees for CCL.
This issue is big headache for all departments of head of Sections and petitioned to higher officials being face shortage of employees. DOP&T has now modified the earlier order. The new DOP&T order clearly says that CCL can be availed only if the employee concerned has no Earned Leave in her account. Those who have already taken the CCL will either have to return to office or part with their accumulated with Earned Leave.
It is further clarified that child care leave sanctioned prior to issuance of O.M. No. 13018/2/2008-Estt.(L) dated 18th November, 2008 shall be treated as child care leave and shall be deducted from the Child Care Leave account of the Government servant concerned.
No adjustment against any other kind of leave shall be made in this regard. The Child Care Leave sanctioned for the period beyond 18/11/2008 shall however be regulated in terms of clarification issued vide O.M. of even number dated 18/11/2008.
