Provision for granting Special Casual Leave for the Woman Employees (45 years of age and above) working in the Central Government Organizations -reg.
The Government of India is aware that with the increased efficiency levels among women in every walk of life, more importantly in the Government sector, a good number of female candidates has been joining services in various organizations of the Central Government in different capacities at all levels ranging from Group ‘C’ to Group ‘A’. while many of them have been performing duties efficiently, their physiological condition changes when they reach certain age which is a natural phenomenon. Federation desires to bring to your kind notice that there is need to consider granting Special Casual Leave for the Women employees of 45 years age and above working in the Central Government services due to the reason that they face hormonal imbalances at the menopause stage which hampers the physical and mental health of women. Therefore provision for granting Special Casual Leave for those Women employees of 45 years age and above including those who undergo Hysterectomy Operation needs to be considered.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary to kindly intervene and get the matter examined for making provision for granting Special Casual Leave to the Woman employees of Central Government Services in the above mentioned situations.
