Sir,

I would like to know certain clarifications regarding order no No. 13018 /1/2010-Estt. (Leave) dated 7th September, 2010 relating to Child Care Leave in respect of Central Government employees as a result of Sixth Central Pay Commission recommendations


(i) CCL may not be granted in more than 3 spells in a calendar year.

Query : What for those who already availed 3 spells (pre orders). Can they still be able to get more spells in 2010 (post orders) ?


4. These orders take effect from 1.9.2008. Earned Leave, if any,

availed by women employees before availing CCL subsequent to

the issue of the OM 13018/2/2008-Estt. (L) dated 18- 1 1-2008 may

be adjusted against CCL, if so requested by the employee.



Query : are there any restrictions for requesting conversion of leave if leave availed is less than 15 daysí.


regards

Restriction of spells of leave is introduced by order dated 7-9-2010 and hence women employees are eligible for 3 spells from 7-9-2010 irrespective of their previous spells of leave.

15 daysí clause also is introduced by order dated 7-9-2010 and hence should not be condition for conversion of previous leave.

But the problem is that the order is effective from 1.9.2008. So the confusion is whether the conditions indicated therein (i.e. 3 spells, 15 days min duration and restriction during probation) would be applicable retrospectively w.e.f. 1.9.2008 or prospectively w.e.f. 7.9.2010. This is how DOPT functions. It creates more confusion with every clarification it issues.

It is a fact that most of the orders issued by DOPT lacks clarity. Even clarifications issued require further clarifications.
In this case, there was no such condition that CCL should be taken in 3 spells from 1-9-2008 to 6-9-2010 and many would have taken more spells of CCL/EL in this period. Similarly the condition of minimum period of 15 days was also not applicable for this period and CCL/EL would have been sanctioned for lesser periods. Hence these conditions are not intended to be retrospectively implemented.
