Central govt women employees fight for 730-day child care leave

Central govt women employees fight for 730-day child care leave

In February 2014, Saphla Rani made news for becoming a mother for the first time at a very late age of 57. Employed as junior manager with RITES (a public sector undertaking under the ministry of railways), she gave birth to a baby boy after undergoing 15 cycles of in-vitro fertilization, a physically and financially taxing fertility procedure.

Three years later, she is now fighting her employer for - first, not sanctioning her Child Care Leave (CCL), which she claims is her Fundamental Right, and second for withholding her due salary when she anyway proceeded on CCL. Last Friday, Saphla says, she received a suspension letter from RITES.

She claims that despite her repeated applications for sanction of CCL, her employer refused to grant it and also didn't furnish any valid reason for the same. She has now filed a complaint with the National Commission of Women, which has sent a letter to RITES seeking a report on the matter.

When TOI spoke to a senior official in RITES, he said that although RITES comes under the ministry of railways, it is a public sector undertaking and has a different leave structure. "We don't follow central government pay packages. And CCL has not yet been approved by our board of directors," he said.

The 7th Pay commission recommends CCL can be granted to women employees having minor children below the age of 18 years, for a maximum period of 2 years (ie. 730 days) during their entire service, for taking care of up to two children. During this period women will be paid leave salary equal to the pay drawn immediately before proceeding on leave.
While women contest that CCL is their right, official communication from the department of personnel and training denies that. An official clarification issued by the DoPT says that CCL cannot be demanded as a matter of right. "Under no circumstances can any employee proceed on CCL without prior proper approval of the leave by the leave sanctioning authority," reads the official clarification.

In the past few years frequent cases of denial of this leave have been reported in the media. For example, in 2014, S Mangala, deputy general manager (Aviation Safety), AAI, filed a petition with the Bombay High Court seeking implementation of child care leave norms recommended in the Sixth Pay Commission in 2008. The judges reserved the order after hearing both sides. Mangala approached the High Court after her request for leave for attending to her 12-year-old daughter was rejected.

In 2015, the Central Administrative Tribunal ruled the CCL was the right of every working woman while directing Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh to reinstate their employee, Anu Sharma, who was sacked for proceeding on CCL.
The Supreme Court passed an order in 2014 ruling that a woman employee of central government can get uninterrupted leave for two years for child care, which also includes needs like examination and sickness. The apex court passed the order in response to a petition filed by Kakali Ghosh, a government employee, challenging government's decision not to grant her leave of 730 days for preparing her son for secondary/senior examinations.

The strike will attempt to highlight their grievances covering a number of issues including the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on wages and allowances for different grades of running staff. Ever since the Central Government notified the 7th Pay Commission on July 25, 2016, running staff i.e. guards and engine drivers of the Indian Railways have been protesting against various discriminatory policies, including long hours of employment and inadequate allowances.

Following these protests, the government had set up two committees to look into their grievances: namely the Allowances Committee and the Anomalies Committee.

Grievances included complaints that guards on goods trains were not given stressful duty allowance or adequate uniform washing allowance. They had also pointed out how guards of goods trains had to operate alone from their cabin without even basic facilities such as lights and fans.

7th Pay Commission Allowance news: Is PM Narendra Modi the final hope for central government employees?

7th Pay Commission Allowance news: Is PM Narendra Modi the final hope for central government employees?


New Delhi, April 22: Almost 10 months have been passed and yet the ‘Committee on Allowances‘ is yet to submit its report. Around 43 lakh employees currently working on the payroll of central government have almost lost their hopes. A large number of government employees are pessimist about the allowances, but the ray of hope for these employees lies within the government. For Central Government employees Prime Minister Narendra Modi is their last hope, as most of them believe that if PM intervenes in the issue, their demands on minimum wages and higher allowance will be met soon. The recommendations made by the 7th Pay Commission was implemented last year. For the decision on higher allowances, a separate committee was set by the Union Government which is headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to look into the demands of Central Government employees. 

Last year in June, after the Union Government implemented the recommendations made under 7th Pay Commission, the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) along with several other leaders had met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. During the meeting, Home Minister Rajnath Singh told NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra that “this meeting had a blessing of Prime Minister Narendra Modi”. Since then a large chunk of central government employees has held high hopes with the Union Government, especially with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier this week, Shiv Gopal Mishra, reportedly said that if their demands for higher allowances and minimum wage are further delayed then they will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “We believe in PM Modi he is our last hope,” said Shiv Gopal Mishra.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not take any confrontation with the government employees and to maintain a good industrial relation in the country, he will find a good negotiated settlement for a large number of government employees,” Shiv Gopal Mishra was quoted in a video. Shiv Gopal Mishra also said that the NJCA will also meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Mishra further added that the government can be blamed for the delay, as the Committee on Allowances is yet to submit its final report. Some reports suggest that the Ashok Lavasa committee will submit its report by the end of next week.

“We have full faith on PM Modi, he will come up with a good settlement plan for central government employees,” said a Union Member. NJCA is a joint body of unions representing central government employees.

The basic pay was hiked from January 1, 2016, but for last 10 months, the central government employees are still waiting for the higher allowances.

7th Pay Commission report: Big changes expected from Ashok Lavasa panel recommendations


With the Ashok Lavasa committee set to recommend changes in allowances under the seventh pay commission, the salaries of central government employees will be witnessing major changes. Apart from abolishing or subsuming various allowances, the committee is most significantly revising the rates of House Rent Allowances (HRA), which a fixed amount paid to the employees for their accommodation needs.



While the HRA is a crucial part of the salaries of government employees, it currently constitutes 30 % of the salries of employees working in metro areas. In the revised rates, the committee will be reducing the HRA to 24% in the metros. The seventh pay commission has further mentioned that the HRA will be extended as per the type of the city where the employee is living in. The cities across the country have been classified into three classes, X, Y and Z.

The cities under class X are Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune and under class Y comes Agra, Ajmer, Aligarh, Allahabad, Amravati, Amritsar, Asansol, Aurangabad, Bareilly, Belgaum, Bhavnagar, Bhiwandi, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Bikaner, Bokaro Steel City, Chandigarh, Coimbatore, Cuttack, Dehradun, Dhanbad, Durg-Bhilai Nagar, Durgapur, Erode, Faridabad, Firozabad, Ghaziabad, Gorakhpur, Gulbarga, Guntur, Gurgaon, Guwahati, Gwalior, Hubli-Dharwad, Indore, Jabalpur, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Jammu, Jamnagar, Jamshedpur, Jhansi, Jodhpur, Kannur, Kanpur, Kakinada, Kochi, Kottayam, Kolhapur, Kollam, Kota, Kozhikode, Kurnool, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Madurai, Malappuram, Malegaon, Mangalore, Meerut, Moradabad, Mysore, Nagpur, Nashik, Nellore, Noida, Patna, Pondicherry, Raipur, Rajkot, Rajahmundry, Ranchi, Rourkela, Salem, Sangli, Siliguri, Solapur, Srinagar, Surat, Thiruvananthapuram, Palakkad, Thrissur, Tiruchirappalli, Tiruppur, Ujjain, Vadodara, Varanasi, Vasai-Virar City, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Warangal. While all other cities in all states and union territories fall under class Z.

While, as per the Ashok Lavasa committee recomendation, the HRA rates will be fixed on the basis of the living costs in different cities, the committee is also planning to set the rates on the basis of the Dearness Allowance (DA) paid to the employees. As reported by India.com, it stated that if the DA to an employee crosses 50% the HRA rates will be 27 per cent, 18 percent and 9 per cent. And if the DA rate crosses 100 % the HRA rates will be 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

The Ashok Lavasa committee is expected to present the final report on the revised rates on April 18.
