As per the ruling given by the Supreme Court of India the women employees in the government offices are now entitled to 730 days leave at a stretch especially to take care of their children below 18 years age. The ruling envisages the care not only for the children in the cradle but even those going to school. The women employees also may have the option of combining the leave due to them in other categories as per their needs. It was a long felt need of the lady staff in the government offices and they have now got it with the Supreme Court intervening in the matter. Much better it was if the government had taken such a decision at their own without the Court’s intervention. Better still it could be if the ruling so given is allowed to be applied to women employees in other sectors too in the country in the case of both public and private undertakings including banks where there is a large number of the women employees working all over the country.
