Based on the recommendation of the VI CPC, Govt. of India accepted and introduced Child Care Leave in respect of Women Central Government Employees vide OM. No.13018/2/2008-Estt(L) dt.11-09-2008.After receiving various representations from Govt Servants/ Federations/Associations, Govt of India reviewed its earlier decision and issued revised orders vide their letter w.e.f. 01-09-2008. According to which, earned Leave, if any availed by women employees before availing CCL subsequent to the issue of the OM.13018/2/2008-Esst(L) dt.18-11-2008may be adjusted against CCL if so requested by the employees.
This benefit of CCL, in respect of Civilian Female Industrial Employees of Defence Establishment covered by the CCS (leave) Rules 1972 were denied the similar benefit though they are at par with the Non-Industrial Central Government Employees Covered by the CCS(Leave) Rules 1972.
The matter was subsequently considered and the benefit of Child Care Leave to Civilian Industrial Employees working in Defence Establishments at par with the Non-Industrial Govt Employees covered by CCS (Leave) Rules,1972 was extended vide your letter under reference. But the order was given effect only from the date of issue of this order ie w.e.f. 20-10-2011.
Many Women Industrial Employees working in Defence Establishments during the absence of the benefit of CCL, availed Earned Leave between September 2008 and October 2011 are not been allowed to adjust against CCL and were deprived of the benefit, since the extended benefit was given only w.e.f. 20-10-2011.
This issue was raised in the National Anomaly Committee meeting held on 05-01-2012 by the Staff side to give effect retrospectively ie subsequently after the issue of O.M. Dt 18-11-2008. The Chairman of the Meeting informed to the Staff side that if references any received, it will be considered.
It is therefore requested to kindly review the order Dt. 20-10-2011 and the benefit of CCl may please be extended retrospectively to women Industrial Employees of Defence Establishments.
