The undersigned is directed to refer to DoPT OM of even number dated 30.07.2014 regarding the subject mentioned above. Representations have been received seeking clarifications regarding treatment of Child Care Leave as per extant instructions towards minimum residency period.

Clause (v) of Para 4 of OM AB 14017/32/2013-Estt.(RR) dated 30.07.2014 may be replaced with the following clauses:
“(v) Earned Leave for a total period of not exceeding 180 days (for 3 year residency period), 210 days (for 4 year residency period) and 240 days (for 5 year residency period) sanctioned as per Leave Rules shall also be taken into account while computing minimum residency period.
(va) Child Care Leave sanctioned as per Rules shall also be taken into account while computing minimum residency period”.
For removal of doubts, it is clarified that the above said modifications will be effective from 30.07.2014, i.e. from the date of issue of the said OM.
