  1. ccl should be given from 1st std to 12th std equally and not at a time some employees taken total ccl at 12th std ie that is to say how can she take the total 1 year of ccl in one bulk , the leave should be given only for a perticular year example 720 days divided by 12 years(every year she is entitled for 60 days but most of the lady employees are taken 11th std mother taken 760 days and 12th std mother taken 360 days , this should be observed carefully

  2. CCL should be given but it should be restricted upto the age of 12 years of a child. Ladies who have only one child should be given 365 days leave why 730 days which is recommended for two children. Some ladies are taking leave for one year continuously in the name of CCL but building their houses, taking treatment in the hospitals. This leave should be given only for illness of child and during examination and not for other purposes and a certificate of illness should be demanded from CGHS dispensary or Govt. hospital.
