ORDER:

 In  the  Government  Order  5th  read  above,  orders  were  issued constituting Ninth  Pay Revision  Commission  and Government appointed Sri.  C.S.  Rao,  IAS,  (Retd)  as  Pay  Revision  Commissioner.  In  the Government  Order  6th  read  above,  the terms of reference  of the  Pay Revision Commissioner were laid down.

2. The  Ninth Pay  Revision  Commission submitted its report to  the Government  on 05.12.2009 and  recommended, inter alia,  that,  “The Commission therefore recommends  grant of  Maternity  leave to  the married women employees  of  the  State up to 180 days  on  par with the  employees of  Government  of  India  subject  to  the  condition that the same would be available up to 2 surviving children only”.

3. In  the  Government  orders  1st  and 2nd  read  above,  orders  are  issued to the  effect that  married female  Government servants,  temporary or permanent,  shall be  granted maternity  Leave  for a  period  of  90  days.   In the  Government  Order  3rd  read  above,  orders were  issued  that  the Maternity  Leave  to the  married  female  Government  servants  shall  be granted  to  those  with  less  than  two  surviving children. In  the Government  orders  4th  read  above,  orders  were  issued  enhancing  the maternity leave  to  the  married female  Government servants,  temporary or permanent, from 90 days to 120 days.

4.  The  9th  PRC in  their  report observed  that, the  Government of India  earlier  issued  orders  enhancing  the Maternity  Leave  to135  days and it  was further enhanced  to 180  days  based  on  the  recommendations of 6th  CPC.  The  Employees Associations have  requested  to  extend the same  to the  Women employees working in the  State Government  also.   PRC  2005  did  not  recommend the  extension of  this leave from  120  to  135 days  on  the  ground  that  a  period  of  120  days  is  considered  adequate  and since paternity  leave is  also  recommended.  The recommendation  of  6th CPC  up to  180 days  was based on  the  guidelines  of Ministry  of  H & FW which recommends nursing of children up  to  the  age  of 6  months. Hence,  the  Commission recommends grant  of  Maternity  leave  to  the married women employees of  the  State  up  to  180  days  on  par with the employees  of  Government of  India subject to  the  condition that  the  same would be available up to 2 surviving children only.

5. After careful consideration  of the report, Government  decided  to accept the  recommendations of the  Pay Revision Commissioner  and hereby  order  that  the  grant maternity leave  on  full pay to married  women employees  of  State  Government  is  enhanced  from 120  days  to  180 days on par  with the  employees  of  the  Govt.  of  India  subject  to  the  condition that  it shall be  granted  to  those  with  less than  two  surviving children only.

6. These orders  shall  come  into  force with  immediate effect.  Those who  are  availing  Maternity  Leave  of  120  days  as  on  the  date  of  issue  of G.O  may continue  till  they  complete  180  days  of  Maternity  Leave.  Those who  have  already  completed 120 days  of  Maternity  Leave  and  still continuing on  other  type  of leave are  not  eligible  to  avail this  benefit.  The employees who  have  already  availed  120  days of  Maternity  Leave and joined duty are also not eligible to avail this benefit.

7. The  G.O  is  available  on  Internet  and  can be  accessed  at  the address http://www.ap.gov.in/goir and http://www.apfinance.gov.in.
