Office Memorandum

Sub: Child Care Leave to Central Government employees - regarding

The undersigned is directed to say that subsequent to issue of this Department OM of even number dated 07/09/2010, this Department has been receiving references from various Departments, seeking clarifications. The doubts raised are clarified as under:-

1. Whether Earned Leave availed for any purpose can be converted into Child Care Leave? How should applications where the purpose of availing leave has been indicated as 'Urgent Work' but the applicant claims to have utilized the leave for taking care of the needs of the child, be treated?
Child Care Leave is sanctioned to women employees having minor children, for rearing or for looking after their needs like examination, sickness etc. Hence Earned Leave availed specifically for this purpose only should be converted.

2. Whether all Earned Leave availed irrespective of number of days i.e. less than 15 days, and number of spells can be converted? In cases where the CCL spills over to the next year (for example 30 days CCL from 27th December), whether the Leave should be treated as one spell or two spells'?
No. As the instructions contained in the OM dated 7.9.2010 has been given retrospective effect, all the conditions specified in the OM would have to be fulfilled for conversion of the Earned Leave into Child Care Leave. In cases where the leave spills over to the next year, it may be treated as one spell against the year in which the leave commences.

3. Whether those who have availed Child Care Leave for more than 3 spells with less than 15 days can avail further Child Care Leave for the remaining period of the current year'?
No. As per the OM of even number dated 7.9.2010, Child Care Leave may not be granted in more than 3 spells. Hence CCL may not be allowed more than 3 times irrespective of the number of days or times Child Care Leave has been availed earlier. Past cases may not be reopened.

4. Whether LTC can be availed during Child Care Leave?

LTC cannot be availed during Child Care Leave as Child Care Leave is granted for the specific purpose of taking care of a minor child for rearing or for looking after any other needs of the child during examination, sickness etc.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department of even Number dated 15.3.2010 extending the Special concessions / facilities to Central Government Employees working in Kashmir Valley in attached / subordinate offices or PSUs falling under the control or Central Government, for the period with effect from 1.1.2010 to 3 1.12.2010 and to say that the Annexure attached with the OM stands partially modified to include the Notes. The Annexure as modified is attached herewith.
(Simmi R. Nakra)
Director (P&A)

All Ministries/Departments of the Government of India.
(As per standard mailing list)


Details of package of Concession/Facilities to Central Government employees working in Kashmir Valley in Attached/Subordinate Offices or PSUs falling under the control of
Central Government:-

I. Additional H.R.A. and other concessions:

(A) Employees posted to Kashmir Valley

(i) These employees have an option to move their families to a selected place of their choice in India at Government expense. T.A. for the families allowed as admissible in permanent transfer inclusive of transportation of personal effects, lump-sum payment
for packing etc.

(ii) Departmental arrangements for stay, security and transportation to place of work for employees.

(iii) HRA as for Class 'A' city applicable for employees exercising option at (i). Such
employees will be eligible for drawing the normal HRA as well at their place of
posting provided Departmental arrangement is not made for his/her stay.

(iv) The period of temporary duty extended to six months. For period of temporary duty daily allowance at full rate is admissible, apart from departmental arrangements for stay, security and transportation.

(B) Employees posted to Kashmir Valley who do not wish to move their families to a selected place of residence;

A per diem allowance of Rs. 10/- is paid for each day of attendance to compensate for any additional expense in transportation to and from office etc. This will be in addition to the transport allowance, which the employee is otherwise eligible for under Ministry of Finance order No. 21(2)/2008-E.II(B) dated 29.8.1008.


Messing Allowance to be paid to the employees at a uniform rate of Rs. 15/- per day by all Departments, or in lieu messing arrangements to be made by the Departments themselves. This rate of allowance will have to be adhered to uniformly by all the Ministries/Departments with effect from 01.07.1999. The slightly higher rate of Rs. 25.50 adopted by the Department of Telecom and Posts and allowed to be continued as a special case by the Department of Personnel in consultation with the Ministry of Finance, would, however, continue to be paid at the said rate.


As a purely temporary measure, the employees migrated from the Kashmir Valley are accommodated to the extent possible in the available vacancies under the respective Ministries/Departments in offices located outside but adjacent to the union Territory of Delhi.


Arrangements were made for payment of leave salary for the period upto 30' April, 1990 in respect of employees who may not have received their emoluments after migration. Such employees were allowed to be given either leave salary at the minimum of the scale or some adhoc financial assistance as an advance to be adjusted from their dues after they join duty. Further the migrant employees who were unable to join their respective places of posting in the Valley due to the prevailing circumstances, were extended this facility till they were adjusted in accordance with (iii) above.


In August, 1992, it was decided that the period of migration of a Central Government employee, who migrated from Kashmir Valley in view of the disturbed conditions would be treated as Earned leave to the extent which may have been due to him on the date of proceeding for migration. However, the position was reviewed by the Ministry of Personnel in April, 1997 and if was decided that the Earned Leave which was at the credit of the Central Government migrant employee at the time of migration will not be adjusted against the migration period, but will remain available for the purpose of leave encashment on the date of their retirement in respect of the employees who had already retired or would retire in future. The period of absence would however count in the service for the purpose of pension, but shall not count for earning any kind of leave. During the period of absence, a migrant employee is entitled to his pay (excluding special pay and local allowances) dearness allowance, which he would have been otherwise paid from time to time including benefit of increment had he reported for duty immediately after expiry of his Earned leave.

To objective of the Scheme for engagement of Gramin Dak Sevaks on compassionate grounds is to engage dependent family member of a Gramin Dak Sevak dying in harness, thereby leaving his family in penury and without adequate means of livelihood.

2. Keeping in view the objective of the Scheme, the existing instructions relating to compassionate engagement have time and again been reviewed/modified/simplified so that the system finally derived at shall be more transparent, efficient and uniform in nature.

3. Currently, there is no laid down transparent criteria for adjudging degree of indigence of the GDS family while considering their cases for compassionate engagement. Therefore, a need is felt to lay down transparent criteria for considering a request for engagement on compassionate grounds by a Committee. A balanced and objective assessment of the financial condition of the family has to be made taking into consideration of his/her assets and liabilities, and all other relevant factors such as presence of an earning member, size of the family and the essential needs of the family including social obligations, etc. in order to assess the degree of indigence of all the
applicants to be considered for compassionate engagement. The Department of Personnel &Training has provided for limiting compassionate appointment of wards of departmental employees to 5% of the total vacancies and no such stipulation has been made for this purpose in respect of GDS. This, however, does not mean that all applicants are to be engaged as GDS on compassionate grounds in relaxation of normal and only the exceptional and deserving cases are to be considered for compassionate engagement as the scheme stipulates that compassionate engagement is to be given only in indigent and deserving cases.

4. The existing procedure has been reviewed in this Directorate and it has been decided by the competent authority that to achieve the objective of the scheme of the compassionate engagement and to ensure complete transparency, merits of the cases can be conveniently indicated by allocating points to the applicants based on various attributes. Accordingly, the Department has worked out a system of allocation of points to various attributes based on a hundred point scale as indicated in the tables below:-

Proposed for GDS Dependants
3 & above


For education of minor children
For marriage of daughter


Proposed slabs for left over service in context to maximum age for discharge
Over 20 years
Over 15 & up to 20 years
Over 10 & up to 15 years
Over 5 & up to 10 years
0-5 years


No house and land
Own house only or land
Own house and land


Proposed slab for family earning
No income
2500 or less per month
2501 to 3500 per month
3501 to 4500 per month
4501 to 5500 per month
5501 & above

Proposed slabs for benefits discharge
Below Rs. 25000
25000 to 50000
50001 to 75000
75001 to 100000
Above 100000


Proposed slab on education of applicant
Below 10+2

5. The above system of weightage not only brings more objectivity to the method but also ensures complete transparency and uniformity in the selection process. The above method is being introduced for considering cases of compassionate engagement to the dependents of the GDS in the event of death of the bread winner. The cases which are more than five years old or having an earning members (s) in the family shall continue to be referred to this Directorate as hitherto before.

6. Shri RS Nataraja Murti Committee had recommended in Para 17.20.2 as under:- "Keeping the spirit of compassionate appointments as enunciated by the Nodal Ministry and also the ruling of the Hon'ble Supreme Court, there is need to provide compassionate appointment to the dependents of GDS in hard and deserving cases. The purpose would be served if the engagement of GDS on the division in a year. The vacancies may be computed separately for GDS BPM and other categories.
The period of consideration of deserving cases may be kept as three years. While considering the cases there need not be any relaxation in educational qualification for the post of BPM. In hard and deserving cases requiring relaxations of educational qualification, the engagement may be offered in other categories of GDS subject to the condition that the incumbent can satisfactorily discharge the duties assigned". While the intention behind the scheme of engagement of GDS on compassionate grounds is to allow engagement of GDS on compassionate ground in hard and deserving cases only and not in all cases, the recommended percentage is twice the percentage prescribed for regular Government employees. The above recommendations have been examined
in this Directorate and it has been decided to accept the same. However, in view of the
Department's plan to computerize the Branch Offices and to use hand held devices etc. besides the requirement of combination of duties in various circumstance, it all categories of Gramin Dak Sevaks including GDS BPM.

7. The number of vacancies and ceiling of 10% now being proposed may be calculated in the following manner:-

(a) The vacancies occurring in a calendar year age to be computed separately for the GDS BPM and other categories of GDS by their appointing authorities for each division well in advance. The appointing authorities while calculating the same shall take into account the vacancies that are likely to occur due to discharge of Gramin Dak Sevaks on attaining the age of 65 years for this purpose during the ensuing calendar year. However, the vacancies arisen due to absorption of Gramin Dak Sevaks in regular departmental posts and due to death occurring during the currency of the calendar year will be added to the vacancies occurring in the next calendar year for computation. The requisite information therefore needs to be compiled at all levels and finally sent to the Head of the Circle concerned by 30th Nov in advance along with cases complete in all

(b) Circle Relaxation Committee shall consider all cases and approve the same subject to guidelines on the subject and ceiling of 10% of the vacancies calculated separately for GDS BPM and other categories of GDS strictly on application of the Point System for determining the indigence. Cases prescribed to be sent to the Directorate more than 5 years old and cases in which one or more member is earning shall continue to be recommended as per existing provisions subject to this overall 10% limit to be applied on divisional basis.

(c) In units where on application of the ceiling percentage, the number of vacancies for consideration of cases for compassionate engagement works out less than 1 (not zero), one vacancy may be earmarked in that division/unit for compassionate engagement.

(d) This percentage of 10% shall only apply to cover cases of wards of deceased GDS and not to GDS acquiring disability during service defined in the persons with Disabilities Act, 1995. Section 47 of the Persons with Disabilities Act, 1995 provides that no establishment shall dispense with or reduce in rank an employee who acquires a disability during his service as also no promotion shall be denied to a person merely on the ground of his disability. In case a GDS acquires a disability during his service and is considered to be unsuitable for the GDS post he was holding, could be shifted to some other post with the same TRCA.

(e) Period of consideration of deserving cases is prescribed as three years i.e. in case where it is not possible to offer engagement of GDS on compassionate grounds due to the application of prescribed ceiling, the case may be considered by the CRC in the subsequent CRC meetings of the next two years to the maximum.

(f) No relaxation in educational qualification for the post of GDS BPM or any other category of GDS would be permissible.

The above instructions will be applicable for all the compassionate engagement case to be considered on or after 01.01.2011. These issues with the approval of Secretary Posts.

These instructions may be communicated to all concerned.

Yours faithfully,

A formal meeting for discussion of the cadre review proposal was held on 27.12.2010. There was no concrete decision arrived in the meeting but there was more progress. The following are only the gist of proposals.
1. Postman: - The present establishment inexistence in this cadre is as follows
Basic – Postmen : - 46381
Mail overseers : 2955
Cash overseers : 739
Head Postmen : 594
Sorting Postmen : 2456
Overseer Postman : 424
7168 - 7168 (Around 16%)
Among the above establishment, TBOP - 12900
BCR - 3195
(No figures on MACP I, II & III available)
At present, there is no supervisory cadre in existence for Postman. Earlier Mail overseers, Sorting Postmen etc were called as LSG and there after it lost significance after introducing TBOP/BCR promotions.
It is proposed by the staff side to provide three promotional layers to this cadre by keeping 70% in basic, 15% in the first, 10% in the second and 5% in the third promotions. It is suggested that out of four postmen, one of the post may be identified to supervise the other three postmen in ensuring 100% articles taking for delivery and remarks in the return apart from his delivery work. Similarly the postman entrusted with Data work for preparing delivery slip, taking returns etc may be provided to the status of next promotion layer and similarly the existing Mail overseers etc may be brought to the third promotional layer.
Since the cadre review pertains only to improve the promotional posts and not to review the pay scales, the pay band may be decided like 2000, 2400, 2800 & 4200 for basic, I, II & III Grades retrospectively.
2. Multi Skilled Staff (Group D)
There is 37757 Multi skilled staff in existence in the Department out of which 17700 in Postal and 14000 in RMS and the remaining are working in administrative offices.
Since the MTS are not getting any II & III MACP promotions and even some are not getting MACP I also, special attention is required. It is suggested to form three layers of Promotion like basis 70, 1st 15, 2nd 10 & third 5% of posts. It is suggested that the MTS assisting Treasury & Sub Accounts may be identified as higher posts. Similarly van attendant, Jamedar in RM and Record Keeper, Chowkidar etc may be identified as higher posts for providing promotions. Since MTS (Group ‘D’) is a common cadre for all Central Government employees, the identification of area and responsibility becomes a must for consideration of care review proposals.
3. Postal Assistant & Sorting Assistant
Basic cadre - 83696
LSG - 6989
HSG II - 1703
HSG I - 1649
Out of which
Postmaster Gr. I - 2097
Postmaster Gr. II - 511
Postmaster Gr. III - 495
Senior PM - 116
As on date, the total number of supervisory posts works out only 12.35% it is suggested that all the single handed & double handed post offices may be identified as LSG Posts (Single handed offices 11395 & Double handed offices 6719). Since the elevation of pay band with Grade pay Rs. 4200/- is not immediately possible to LSG since it has long process and left the decision with nodal ministries, the present LSG posts 6989 posts may be merged with HSG II cadre. (For example 2899 LSG offices plus 3732 Triple handed post offices & plus other LSG Posts). Similarly the present HSG II & HSG I posts shall be amalgamated. There will be no change of Grade pay in any cadre since it will not come under the jurisdiction of cadre review.
It is suggested that the nomenclature of existing LSG, HSG-II & HSG-I shall be revised as Supervisor/Manager, Senior Manager/ Supervisor, Chief Manager/Supervisor respectively. It is further suggested to convert the HSG-I as Gazetted as if equal to the present status of Asst. Supdt. of POs.
Whatever be the increase in the number of Supervisory post, it will have simultaneous reflection in the Post master’s cadre also.
PO & RMS Accountant, System Administrators Marketing Executive & others
After identifying the number of Grade I, I & III posts from the Postal Assistants, separate cadre for PO & RMS Accountants, Systems Assistants, Marketing Executive will be carved out from the promotional posts and declare the posts as promotional posts to Postal Assistants.
(i) The PO & RMS Accounts qualified officials will be placed in Rs. 2800/- grade pay and on qualifying they may be engaged in accounts branch. A separate promotional avenue can be carved out for APM Accounts from the existing LSG, HSG II & HSG I Posts.
(ii) Marketing Executive will be placed in Rs.2800/- Grade pay and a separate cadre will be explored in higher promotional posts.
(iii) System Administrators will also be carved out similarly to this. However, it is suggested that in respect of System Administrators, they may be placed in the Grade pay of Rs. 4200/- as if available in other Governmental organization. PMAs will be brought under the category of System Assistant.
(iv) Similarly there are 300 DOPLI and they may be placed in the Grade Pay of Rs. 4200/-
In respect of RMS, What is the proportion maintained in Postal Assistant cadre in higher posts in the postal, that will be maintained.
Circle office staff
In respect of circle office there are 2400 officials working and at present there is only one promotion of section supervisor with Grade Pay of Rs. 2800/- available.
It is proposed to form II layer of promotion as deputy office superintendent with Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- and elevate the office superintendent with Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- Similarly another layer of Director with grade pay of Rs,4800 may be formed. The Percentage proposed is 50 + 20 + 15+ 10 + 5. There are 59 regional offices in which, it is suggested to upgrade the office supervisors. Similarly all PLI section officers may be elevated to the status of office superintendent.
SBCO staff
Total staff is 4100. There is no HSG II at present. It is suggested to provide four layers of promotions with the ratio of 50:20:20; 5: 5. The SBCO in charge of All Gazetted HPOs (116) may be converted to HSG I. There are 442 divisions and all the in charge of such divisional head quarters may be considered for HSG II. It is further suggested that the in charge of SBCO having up to 50,000 entries may be converted to LSG, above 50,000 up to 100000 may be to HSG II and above 1 lakh, it will be HSG I, Similarly all working in (PWCs/ICOs shall be placed in promotional posts.
Matching Savings
Official side proposed to accept closure/ merger of 3000 single handed post offices/ RMS offices as matching savings in urban areas which will be decided on the following grounds:
i. Offices having less than five hours work load (excluding sub accounts work)
ii. Post offices situated within 2.5 kilometers.
iii. The personnel relieved due to the closure/merger will be accommodated in the single/ double handed offices where work load justify for further augmentation.
The staff side seeks time to discuss on matching savings among them and to form a joint proposal on all the above discussed items.
Please note that the above proposals are not accepted totally and it were in the discussion stages only. A broad consensus and discussions are required to improve many of the items mentioned above. Staff side will sit shortly and discuss the above and submit its proposal shortly. The next formal meeting will be held on 22.1.2011 at 11 hours to finalize the proposal.
All are requested to offer their comments on this to have further study and improvement of our proposals.
