Dear Mr Avik,
Please follow the Rule 198 of West Bengal Service Rules, Part – I for details. For the ready convenience of the members of this family I am posting the same here: –
(1) Where, in consequence of the presence of an infectious disease, referred to in sub-rule (2), in the family or household of a Government employee at his place of duty, residence or sojourns, his attendance at his office is considered as hazardous to the health of other Government employees, such Government employee may be granted quarantine leave.
(a) For the purpose of sub-rule (1), small-pox may be considered as infectious disease, chicken-pox shall not, however, be considered as infectious disease unless the Medical Officer or Public Health Officer considers that because of doubt as to the true nature of the disease, e.g., small-pox, there is reason for the grant of such leave.
(b) The following diseases shall also be treated as infectious for the purpose of grant of Quarantine leave:-
(i) Scarlet Fever,
(ii) Plague (Bueekmonic or bubonic),
(iv) Cerebro-spinal meningitis;
(II) for persons employed in the preparation and distribution of food, trie following additional diseases shall also be treated as infectious:—
(ii)) Enteric fever (Typhoid fever),
(iii) Malta fever,
(iv) Paratyphoid fever.
(a) Quarantine leave may be, granted by the head of office on the certificate of a Medical Officer or Public Health Officer for a period not exceeding 21 days or, in exceptional circumstances, 30 days.
(b) Any leave necessary in excess of this period shall be treated as leave due and admissible and shall be debitable to the leave account of the Government employee.
(4) Quarantine leave, subject to the maximum laid down in sub-rule (3), may also be granted, when necessary, in continuation of other leave.
(5) A Government employee on Quarantine leave shall be treated as on duty. No substitute shall be appointed while he is on such leave.
Note.—The term “Medical Officer or Public Health Officer” occurring in this rule includes Medical Officer in charge of- any Government (Civil or Military) or Municipal Hospital or dispensary. In case of a Government employee at whose place of duty, there is no Government or Municipal Hospital or Dispensary, it includes the Medical Officer in charge of a Government or Municipal Hospital or Dispensary situated nearest to his place of duty,September 22, 2012 at 7:14 pm #74357
Thank you 10may babu,
In the above connection it may be added:-
The incumbent who is a patient of the above mentioned disease is not allowed such quarantine leave (21 to 30 days). The period of his leave of absence for this reason will deduct from his earned leave(Medical/half average pay/E.O.L/etc.). He will be allowed to take this leave in case of his family or household suffers from this disease.September 23, 2012 at 2:56 am #74361
Moreover, ‘small pox’ has been declared not to be in existence, ‘chicken pox’ is not infectious by rule unless the specified ‘Medical officer’ certifies. ‘Quarantine leave’ for chicken pox is a dream & regular leave is taken therefore.
But, the relevant rule should be modified.
