b)  LTC  cannot  be  availed   during  the  Child  Care  Leave  as  the  leave  is  granted  for  the specific  purpose   of taking  care  of the  minor  child  for  rearing  or for  looking  after  any other needs of the child during examination,   sickness  etc.

c)   The leave account  for child  care shall be maintained  in the prescribed  proforma  enclosed and  it shall  be kept  along  with  the  Service  Book  of the Government   servant  concerned. The leave shall  be deducted  from the Child care leave account.
