CHILD CARE LEAVE : DOPT and FINMIN ORDERS
Introduction of child care leave in respect of Central Government employees as per recommeded in the sixth Central Pay Commission, women employees having minor children may be granted CCL by an authority competent to grant leave for a maximum period of 730 days during their enitre service for taking care of up to two children, whether for rearing or to look after any of their needs like examination, scikness etc. Hence Earned Leave availed specifically for this purpose only should be converted. Child Care Leave shall not be admissible if the child is eighteen years of age or older.
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. After consideration of all the views, Dopt declared, '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'.
In further, Dopt orders said that "CCL cannot be demanded as a matter of right. Under no circumstances can any employee proceed on CCL without prior proper approval of the leave by the leave sanctioning authority. The leave is to be treated like the Earned Leave and sanctioned as such. Consequently, Saturdays, Sundays, Gazetted holidays etc. falling during the period of leave would also count for CCL, as in the case of Earned Leave. CCL can be availed only if the employee concerned has no Earned Leave at her credit.
and also instrcuted as "CCL may not be granted in more than 3 spells in a calendar year. CCL may not be granted for less than 15 days. CCL should not ordinarily be granted during the probation period except in case of certain extreme situations where the leave sanctioning authority is fully satisfied about the need of Child Care Leave to the probationer. It may also be ensured that the period for which this leave is sanctioned during probation is minimal.

And in 2012 she passed away(Expired) due to her cancer problem,now at the time of auditing of her service record they raised an objection as she is not eligible for CCL. So the entire amount paid through the CCL i.e As salary to her from 2010 to 2011 is to be recovered. As she is been expired on 2012, the GPF amount which is the only amount of my mother which we also has been recovered. After recovering the GPF amount the Balance amount is 1,50,000/-.which is to be paid.
