Dear Sir,

Sub: Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC 

It may please be recalled that, the 6th CPC, accepting the consistent
demand of the Staff Side for grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central
Government Employees, had recommended maximum two years CCL for women
government employees for taking care of maximum two children, as a welfare
measure the women government employee for taking care of maximum two
children as a welfare measure. Women government employees were availing
this specific leave for taking care of their children with 100% salary for
a maximum period of two years, owing to certain difficulties having being
experienced by the employer, certain conditions were subsequently laid down
to avail CCL by women government employees. 
One of the subsequently introduced conditions was that, they can avail
their leave in maximum 3 spell during in a calendar year. While 7th CPC has
duly acknowledged the requirement of CCL for women government employees as
well as single male employees and recommended that the practice should
continue as hitherto, additionally entitling single male employee to avail
the same, but unfortunately, imposed another new condition that, although
for the first 365 CCL 100% salary would be payable. However, for subsequent
365 days only 80% of their salary to be paid. 
It may be appreciated that, provision of CCL to women government employees
with the sole motto of taking care of their children, particularly at the
time the children are in grave need of the same, a welfare measure at the
same was being granted with 100% salary before the report of the 7th CPC
came in the effect. 
Therefore, imposition of the condition of 80% salary payable in the 2nd
spell of 365 days is grossly unjustified and uncalled for and would result
in withdrawal of a well acknowledged welfare measure.

It is, therefore, requested that the issue may be looked into in the light
of the foregoing the earlier practice of payment of 100% salary of the
entire 2 years may please be restored as a noble employer.
