Paternity Leave

Paternity Leave

103A. Paternity Leave : A male Government servant with less than two surviving children may be granted paternity leave (maximum two times) for a period of 15 days during confinement of his wife i.e. 15 days before to three months after childbirth and if such leave is not availed of within this period it shall be treated as lapsed.

During the period of such leave, the Government servant shall be paid leave salary equal to the pay drawn immediately before proceeding on leave. Paternity Leave shall not be debited against the leave account but such entry should be made in the service book separately and may be combined with any other kind of leave (as in the case of maternity leave).

Such leave shall not be allowed in case of miscarrige including abortion of the Government servants wife.
