Extraordinary Leave without pay – Secondary School
April 28, 2012 at 12:58 am #67416
Working at Govt. aided school scince May -2005. Applied an Extraordinary Leave with out pay for 1 year to MC for accompaining husband working in USA. MC approved Extraordinary leave without pay for 6 months from Feb 2012 to July 2012 and assured further extension on re application after 6 months. MC suggested to pay some monthly salary to a Part Time during the leave; which i’m paying on monthly basis.
I’m in USA now with 22 months kid. Suddenly; Headmaster informed that; DI of schools wants to disapprove the leave and join duties immediately.
Please advise what should i do?
Thank you in advance for your guidance.

Welcome to this forum. I think MC wrongly approved your Leave. Prior permission of extra ordinary leave can only be approved when the incumbent has some unavoidable ground and I dont think the ground you mentioned was satisfactory enough to considered as unavoidable. Thats why D.I. wants to dis-approve the leave now. For safeguard of your service, I think you should join your duty otherwise you may face disciplinary action in future if the intimation of the H.M. duly conveyed to you. After joining, You may further apply to the MC with some other ground which seems as unavoidable. Good luck.April 28, 2012 at 6:17 am #72216

We should not suggest any body to FRAME any ground which seems as unavoidable here in this forum. here in this case the person who is taking classes in her place is certainly a relative to secretary or to any of his near ones! he allowed her only to get the person to earn some money! thats why she has to pay him! its unusual and illegal too. should we support her! we must keep in mind the interest of students who are the victim in this case, before suggesting any thing!
i know everyone will oppose me!
som! i am not blaming you! i know you are a very helpful friend so i just want u to remember we should not support in this forum any thing illegal for the sake of friendship!April 28, 2012 at 10:40 am #72219
At first I welcome the comments made by our dear friend Biku. Of course we should not entertain or support anything illegal. Now I think I should elaborate my point of view to state that I did not suggest anything illegal. First of all I suggested her to join her duty then file application having some reasonable ground. She already stated that she has been taking care of her 22 months child and if the Govt. becomes fair enough to treat all equally, she will also be eligible to avail the so called “child care leave”. I already said her that the ground she mentioned regarding accompaining her husband was not enough to consider as unavoidable. But when the Govt is kind enough to consider the fact of child care so drastically, why it should not be a solid ground to consider as unavoidable? Though the entire matter will depend upon the MC and DI, I just tried to show her the actual and legal process and there is nothing illegal I shown to the best of my knowledge. Lets see what our other friends say.
Dear friend (Biku), I appreciate your way of thinking as you told that we should keep in mind the interest of students but we cant give off our rights and sacrify all in the interest of service. We cant deprive our family too. I actually intended to tell her to apply for the leave if she have some reasonable ground which seem to be unavoidable. Now if she dont have such ground, she will not apply or it will not be allowed by the competent authority. Rather I tried to avoid the illegal matters like she said that someone has been working in her place and she has been paying a part of her salary. Thats totally illegal. I hope my friend will be good enough to understand me.April 28, 2012 at 12:08 pm #72220
You are right som. Govt. already is depriving school teachers, from enjoying Child Care Leave (with Pay). So, at least the Lady can expect EOL without Pay for the said period. Not only that, our corrupted system suggested her to pay to the alternate arrangement (part time teacher) which should likely to be arranged by the system itself as per West Bengal Schools Recruitment of Teacher on Vacancy Caused by Leave or Deputation Rules, 2006. Now, a part of the system is again creating problems in her life. What a shame.April 28, 2012 at 1:18 pm #72221
I think Mr. Som is right.April 28, 2012 at 5:39 pm #72225
Thanks all for participating on this nice discussion and putting their point of views and a special thanks to our new member for creating this topic. I hope this discussion will be helpful for many others.April 29, 2012 at 6:14 am #72226
In my opinion both Som and Biku are right in their respective point of views. Since, Govt. has not extended the Child Care Leave to the School Teachers, as of now, they are not entitled to it. So arguing over that point in this case is not proper. We should restrict our suggestions strictly within the rules and provisions of Govt. orders which are in vogue for a real case. Creating a pressure group/demanding something from employers for something, which is justified,is altogether a different ball game. We have a separate thread running for discussion of the same in our forum itself. All are welcome to add their suggestion about what is not available now to a certain section of employees and what should be logically given/extended to them in those topics. But not here, while we are to suggest something actionable to a real life problem of one person.Here we should contain ourselves strictly within the purview of Govt Orders governing his/her service conditions currently.
Having said this, I must add that the action of HM/MC of the school who made the individual pay for his/her absence is totally a mockery of our education system. On the other hand it may also be well intentioned– he/they might have taken the decision to alleviate the problem to be faced by the students in absence of a regular teacher for a fairly long time and releasing the applicant a long holiday while she is allowed to keep a sort of lien on her post. Now they are certainly not authorised to do this. The applicant is also at fault being a party to this convenient but illegal scheme. May be our system with all its lethargic attitude towards speedy decisions made them taking the plunge to bypass the rule of Law.
