Male Govt. Employees Now Entitled to Child Care Leave

On Monday (October 25, 2020), Union Minister Jitendra Singh made a ground breaking decision by granting male government employees who are single parents with childcare leave.

Jitendra Singh is the Minister of State for Personnel and the statement was issued by the Personnel Ministry.

The single male parent here includes all the employees who are unmarried or widower or divorcee and are required to take up the responsibility of the child single-handedly.

He further said that an employee on childcare leave can leave the headquarters with the prior approval of the competent authority.

The Leave Travel Concession (LTC) can also be availed by the male employee even if he is on childcare leave.

The childcare leave can be granted at 100 percent of leave salary for the first 365 days and 80 percent of leave salary for the next 365 days.

In the case of a disabled child, the condition of availing childcare leave up to the age of 22 years of the child has been removed and the child care leave can be availed by a male government servant for a disabled child of any age.

The basic purpose behind this decision is 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 towards corruption or non-performance.

Even though the orders regarding this decision were issued earlier but there is a lack of awareness among the public about the same.
