year.

ensured that the period for which this leave is sanctioned during
probation is minimal.

There need not be any doubt in this regard. Of-course due to delayed announcement of amendment of "NIL" EL clause, many women employees who were actually eligible had no opportunity as their children had crossed 18 years of age now.

Coming to conversion, any EL taken exclusively for the purpose of child care alone can be converted into CCL.

Like this, there are many issues which are still to be sorted out. May be it will be referred to 7th Pay Commission because neither unions are powerful nor the Govt is willing to take timely decisions (CCL is one example as many who were nearing cut off age of children cud not avail this due to this late announcement).

REGARDS

From 1-9-2008 to 18-11-2008 there was no restriction to take CCL for those who had Earned Leave at their credit. It was with the issue of clarification dated 18-11-2008 that such a restriction occurred. Hence earned leave taken subsequent to 18-11-2008 only can be converted as CCL. Earned Leave for any reason can not be adjusted against CCL. But earned leave taken on personal grounds can be converted to CCL.
