OFFICE MEMORANDUM

 

Subject:    Child Care Leave to Central Government employees – regarding 

The undersigned is directed to say that subsequent tu issue of this Department OM of even number dated 07/09/2010, this Department has been receiving references from various Departments, seeking clarifications. The doubts raised are clarified as under:- 

      1. Whether Earned Leave availed for any purpose can be converted into Child Care Leave? How should applications where the purpose of availing leave has been indicated as ‘Urgent Work’ but the applicant claims to have utilized the leave for taking care of the needs of the child, be treated? 

 

Child Care Leave is sanctioned to women employees having minor children, for rearing or for looking after their needs like examination, sickness etc. Hence Earned Leabe availed specifically for this purpose only should be converted.

2.       2.Whether all Earned Leave availed irrespective of number of days i.e. less than 15 days, and number of spells can be converted? In cases where the CCL spills over to the next year (for example 30 days CCL from 27th December), whether the Leave should be treated as one spell or two spells’? 

 

No. As the instructions contained in the OM dated 7.9.2010 has been given retrospective effect, all the conditions specified in the OM would have to be fulfilled for conversion of the Earned Leave into Child Care Leave. In cases where the leave spills over to the next year, it may be treated as one spell against the year in which the leave commences.

3.       Whether those who have availed Child Care Leave for more than 3 spells with less than 15 days can avail further Child Care Leave for the remaining period of the current year’? 

 

No. As per the OM of even number dated 7.9.2010, Child Care Leave may not be granted in more than 3 spells. Hence CCL may not be allowed more than 3 times irrespective of the number of daya or times Child Care Leave has been availed earlier. Past cases may not be reopened.

4.       Whether LTC can be availed during Child Care Leave? 

LTC cannot be availed during Child Care Leave as Child Care Leave is granted for the specific purpose of taking care of a minor child for rearing or for looking after any other needs of the child during examination, sickness etc.

December 31, 2010 Leave a comment

  •  The pay commission chaired by Justice R. Rajendra Babu would today submit a report to Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan, recommending a revision of scales for Government employees and teachers.

  • The pay commission is most likely to recommend a minimum salary revision of Rs 1000 for the 4.5 lakh Government employees and teachers in the State.
  • The state government is planning revised wages from April 2011. The state government has also asked the commission to give a report on the pay revisions in universities, high court and water authority.
  •  The Government also asked the commission to give report on the pay revisions in universities, high court, and water authority.
  • The government earlier approved steep hike in salary of college teachers by UGC and engineering college teachers by AICTE.
  •  As per the governmental if it takes debt of Rs 2000 crore for pay hike, there won’t be any money in exchequer for developmental activities.
  • So the demand to raise salary in par with central government employees won’t be acceptable.
  • The government had allotted time till December to the commission head by Justice Rajendra Babu which was formed in February.
  • Even if the commission submits report, the proceedings to hike the pay would be finalized only after three more months.
  • Then the decision has to approve by the cabinet. Accountant general also examines the same before issuing it as an order.
  • The pay revision would be included in budget 2010-11.
