Single male parent employees are also entitled to Child Care Leave,announces Union Minister

Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh announced that Child Care Leave (CCL) can be taken by male employees who are widowers or divorcees or unmarried and therefore may take up the responsibility of child care single handedly.

Employee on child care leave can take leave from respective headquarters with prior approval of concerned authorities, ministry notified. 100 per cent leave salary can be availed for one year and 80 per cent of leave salary for next 365 days. In addition, age limit of 22 years for child with disability removed, so that a government employ can avail Child Care leave for a child with disability of any age.

Union minister of Department of Personal and Training (DoPT) Dr. Jitendra Singh marked this reform in Child Care leave as path breaking and progressive which will ease the life style of government employees.

"Basic assumption behind all these decisions has always been to enable a government employee to contribute to the maximum of his potential, although at the same time there will be no leniency or tolerance toward corruption or non-performance" He added.

Earlier this April, Indian Railways granted 2-year Child Care leave for single male parent employees.
