Dear sir,

I have given birth a baby on 10th October 2012.

And 12 october 2012 I got a appoinment letter.

1st November 2012 I have joined in Service. May I get 180 days maternity leave.

     My wife is a apprentice trainee, she recently got posting orders as substitute Khalasi. Now she is three months pregnant, Q i) Can she avail maternity leave soon after joining?   Q ii) If not, after how many days after joining she can avail maternity leave? Q iii) what is the time period for  a new appointee as substitute Khalasis to avail CCL? .

      Please help me out.

Rule says

"CCL should not ordinarily be granted during probation period except in extreme situations where the leave sanctioning authority is fully satisfied of the need of granting CCL. In any case it should be ensured that the CCL sanctioned during probationary period is kept minimum."

So it wont be normally granted during apprenticeship.

Is medical certificate from railway hospital is necessary to take maternity leave ? medical certificate from a registered medical practitioner other than rlyway hospital is accepted ?

Can CCL for 6 monhts be availed in continuation of maternity leave in single spell? Authority is sanctioning CCL in extension of 15 days and counted them as different spell.

Is there any formula of spell counting is mentioned in Railway Board Circular ?

I checked each and every circular but did not get the right answer as there is no specification given ?

Is it also necessary to get approval on each spell as I have already demanded for 06 months CCL in continuation of ML.

Please guide me as my  child is too little
