PREVIOUS TO THE RECENT ORDER, THE LEAVE AVAILED IS NOT MORE THAN TEN DAYS AND IN MORE THAN 3 SPELLS. HOW THIS LEAVE WILL BE TREATED.

Is it really serving the purpose to take care of child at the time of his/her need when the spells of taking CCL have benn limited to 3 spells?

Reply

Isn't it more useful if instead of limiting spells, the number of days of CCL should be limited in a calender year?

Reply

Thanks for deletion of condition ccl can be availed only after completion of EL. Previous to these orders EL/CCL granted not more than 10 days due to work pressure in more than 3 spells. Now how that leave will be treated please clarify.

Thanks for giving relaxation to CCL. all EL availed before CCL can be converted into CCL availed for the purpose of Child Care. Officers not sanctioned more than 10 days for not disturbing the work.

What to do when sanctioning authority is using own wish to stop CCL or to grant CCL from time to time? Does it mean Leave for 'Child CARE'?

Reply

When the first order for CCL came, the same was not sanctioned in my office stating that they need further clarification. In the second order it was stated that CCL can be availed only after exhausting the EL. But now in the third order it is mentioned that persons having EL are also eligible to avail CCL. But in the meantime, during these clarifications, my son has attained the age of 18 years. I could not avail the CCL facility due to the delay in giving clarification by the concerned. Hence, sir please clarify whether I can now avail the CCL for my son's exams, etc. because the same cannot be availed by me due to the delay in giving clarification.

I am an employee of the Food Corporation of India, Kolkata, and my officers have refused to grant me Child Care Leave as my child has no disability. Acc. to them, the Latest Circular needs to be clarified furhter to imply that even the mothers of normal children are entitiled to avail the leave.

Reply

I feel they should make it minimum 12 days CCL as 15 days makes me lose suffix facility. e.g. i am going on leave from 20th Dec'10 monday to 3rd jan 2011 (15days). if i wish also i cannot join on monday.

Child Care Leave is a very welcoming decision of Govt of India. But I think there should be more regulations in granting this Leave.Otherwise there is every chance of misusing this Leave. It is now found that Women employees are in mass applying for this Leave with out any unavoidable purpose. This is resulting in smooth functioning of Offices in Southern Parts of India where the percentage of women employees are more than men. I think all will take my comment positively.

Hey How about CCL to male employees. We have got physically handicapped Husband & Wife employees with a physicaly handicapped child, Can the government explore possibilities to grant CCL leave to the couple in different spells? Let someone take up such points during discussions with Government.

if the child care leave has been applied for from a particular date and the same has not been reported by the sanctioning authority whether it is sancioned or rejected and the need to continue is really urgent as there is no one at home to look after my daughter as my fulltime babysitter has gone to her native place for a couple of month then how do i proceed for leave as the leave papers have been put up for more than 20 days and the sanction has not been granted

Its exam time... Non industrial LDC, UDC's from my office are getting CCL but my wife being Industrial employee,is not given CCL in 512 Army Base Workshop,Kirkee,Pune. This is injustice and shame to the estt. in EME.

CCL is fine by me. But, the definition of child for the 17 and 18 years old make no senses. Most wards in 18 years are doing colleges.

What kind of care they need from their mom?

I think government is too bent on this issue because of pure vote bank politics.

Reply

By converting earlier 'Earned leave availed for any reason' (effected from 1.9.2008) into child care leave and regain that leaves to the credit of their leave account is too much.

It defies any logic.

Further if the age of the child is limited to 5 or 8 years will do justifiable cause.

Truely it is vote grabbing politics of politicians.

Reply

yes, it is truly a child and adolescent care leave !

In my office almost 60% staff are women and among them 40% are eligible for child care leave. By virtue of union pressure almost all got their CCL. Now we, the remaining male members suffering a lot.

My daughter appearing for Board exam and i am going every day late to home.

It is a biased world.

I curse the people who given out this idea without properly applying their mind.

Reply

An officer should be alloted to look into the child care leave for the genuinity of the need of the leave because even for genuine reasons we are being denied of the leave by few officers inspite of knowing that we are surplus staff and the work will be affected in no way.

I am a railway employee.

HOW SOON WILL THIS LEAVE BE APPLICABLE FOR SBI AND ASOCIATES?
MY DAUGHTER IS CURRENTLY GIVING HER BOARDS, HUSBAND IS POSTED OUT AND I NEED THIS LEAVE. PL CLARIFY. THANKS

My wife applied for the CCL and that too for minimum period as per rules which is 15 days. As there was no one to take care of my child at home and we had to start sending him to school. For settling in the child, it was required that she should be with him for initial few days.

We attached the admission slip along with the request as proof. But, the authorities are so idiots that they even don't understand this. She is working in 'G' Block, PCDA Office where the PCDA is behaving like a principle and the office has become a school.

It is really shameful on part of him....If government has given such leaves for woman employees who the hell he is to reject even based on a genuine ground.

What are the grounds on which the Child Care Leave is given? Is it always necessary to provide any supporting document mentioning the reason for application?

Some people say that it is only in case of illness of child or during examinations, but is it documented somewhere that for which all other reasons this leave can be provided.

If the child care leave is not granted for any reason, to whom an employee can approach for second level approval, if that can be done.

As i have just joined the office and i do not have many EL in my account being the first year of service. Is it not possible to take Child Care Leave during probation.

Request anyone has this information to provide me the clarity on the same. Thanks.

NRD says child care leave is available only if principal wish to give. It is nothing to do with the real reason behind the leave asked by the teacher. Principal will sanction EOL but not CCL(I think principal gets some bonus amount from KV sanghatan on the amount he/she has saved in a year).In very few cases it is depending on the relation between teacher and the principal. This has happend with my wife last year when asked for CCL for my son. Principal converted all the requested CCL to EOL(without pay)but lady principal was verymuch regid for not giving the CCL.Also she sent a frequent telegrams for joining the school. On the other hand one pricipal in Pune KV sanction CCL of a teacher when teacher said that this is my last year because my son will cross 18 yrs of age next year so sanction my ccl. and That teacher got CCL. Will see what happens this year.Fortumately this year that lady principal has transferred.

1) Child care is joint/collective responsibility of both men and women especially after child crosses the tender age and hence extension of the same to either of the parents will render justice. By extending the leave only to female employees, the male employees are absolved of their duties/responsibility towards their children.
2) Child care leave is an additional facility (unlike maternity leave which can be availed only by the female employees) to take care of children at the time of specific needs like sickness, examination, etc. The present provisions of child care leave are gender discriminatory – and assume that the children of male employees will not fall sick or they do not have examinations. Many male employees have to exhaust leave on such occasions while females can avail child care leave. Situations/problems are similar but facility offered is different.

Reply

The present facility of child care leave which is exclusively for women employees is against the basic objectives and provisions of the Equal remuneration Act, 1976.
5) Also, there are many male employees who are single parent (widower or divorced) or male employees who have their wives working in organizations (private sector) where child care leave is not in existence and extension of child care leave will be of immense help to them.

I am working in Postal Department, Chennai.

My daughter, who is at present 15 years old has been diagonised with borderline cerebral palsy with developmental delay since her birth. She is facing her board exams in this forthcoming year.

She has been pulled all along in her Academics side and Physical side with great stress and pain in my heart. she underwent many therapies including speech and occupational therapy and now she is in a stage that she could manage to complete her tenth standard when a strong support is given to her academically.

She has been assessed with 50% disability by the Government of Tamilnadu and a certificate to that effect has also been issued.

I have put in 16 years of service. With all these hurdles in my life, I have not applied any kind of long leave through out my service with the intention to avail Child Care Leave when my daughter comes to Tenth Standard.

To my dismay, when applied for leave, my leave sanctioning authority, do not even bother to hear my words. He bluntly told that CCL is not granted for more than 15 days to any body. He failed to consider my case on the medical ground. I feel that I am very much harassed and I am in a depressed state.

When many of the women employees in my office are availing CCL to make their children score good marks through some recommendation, why cant me granted CCL to enable my daugher to get pass marks?

Why cant the Leave sanctioning authority grant leave considering the genuiness of the case.

It is good to know about such an huge effort taken by govt for the better upbringing of future generations of our country and giving chance to female govt employees to enjoy their true motherhood..but the negative part of this effort is that it has given power to certain dramebaaz female employees to avail the leave for long period of time that to unneccarily .
They avail the leave at the name of child and they misuse it completely affecting their collagues personal life
I am also a female and I have came through such an collague who is doing such things.
I think der should be some solid foundations laid for this CCL leave and govt should take necessary steps in order to find out if the leave is not been misuse in any ways
