Child Care Leave-Cont.Gen.(Def.Accts) clarification

The Controller General of Defence Accounts, New Delhi, has referred the  clarification by DoP&T that Child Care Leave (CCL) cannot be demanded as a matter of right and under no circumstances can any employee proceed on CCL without prior approval of leave by the leave sanctioning authority.

The Controller General has  observed  that  some instances where CCL was  used as a means to dodge unpalatable postings or to avoid functioning in a specific office/section and even to proceed abroad, rather than for the purpose for which CCL was introduced. As such practices are  against the spirit of the Govt. orders on the subject, all PCsDA/CsDA have been directed to review  the cases of CCL granted to the employees under their jurisdiction  and to ensure that the CCL has been genuinely granted for the purpose for which it is meant. It has been  impressed upon all concerned that proceeding on CCL without sanction constitutes misconduct and will invite disciplinary proceedings against the official concerned.
