Child Care Leave

Bank Employees Latest News

Towards this end the Commission recommends that CCL
should be granted at 100 percent of the salary for the first 365 days, but at 80
percent of the salary for the next 365 days. In making this recommendation the
Commission has also kept in mind the fact the concept of a paid (whether 100%
or 80%) leave solely for child care for a period of two years, is a liberal measure
unmatched anywhere else. The Commission notes that in the event a male
employee is single, the onus of rearing and nurturing the children falls squarely
on his shoulders. Hence extension of CCL to single male parents is
recommended. Moreover, the Commission recognizes the additional
responsibility on the shoulders of employees who are single mothers.
Accordingly, it is recommended that for such employees, the conditionality of
three spells in a calendar year should be relaxed to six spells in a calendar
“Presently 30 days EL per annum is granted to Civilian employees and 60 days
to Defence personnel. EL can be accumulated up to 300 days in addition to the
number of days for which encashment has been allowed along with LTC”
However a recent Judgement of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, it is ruled
that no accumulated leave can lapse. Hence the present ceiling should be
removed completely.
