Male Government Servant with less than two surviving children are eligible for 15 days paternity leave during wife,s confinement.

According to Swamy's Handbook 2001 page 131 " To be applied up to fifteen days before or up to six months from date of delivery. If the leave is not availed of within this period, it should be treated as lapsed.-Rules 43-A and 43-AA."

can somebody clarify that the leave should complete within six months from the delivery or it should start within six months and some part of leave can go outside six months period.

e.g.
if the delivery date is 12-september-2010,than can it is possible to take paternity leave from 7-march-2011 to 21-march-2011.

Thanks for reply,
My doubt is about the word availed, what is the interpretation of availed,
if the leave is started within six months then it is treated as availed OR the leave should complete within six months then it is treated as availed.

e.g., in case of LTC if outbound journey start on 31-Dec after which LTC become lapsed, then it is treated as availed.
