Maternity Leave is counted in service for all practical purposes. You may keep the approval granted for Maternity Leave safely in your record and check the entries in service book/record. For the extension of probation period by the quantum of leave (say Maternity Leave) acquire certified copy of service rules and regulations of the establishment and refer to these.

Rule 33 of Revised Leave Rules, 1972

. Leave to probationer, a person on probation


(1)(a) A probationer shall be entitled to leave under these rules if he

had held his post substantively otherwise than on probation.



(2) A person appointed to a post on probation shall be entitled to

leave under these rules as a temporary or a permanent Government servant

according as his appointment is against a temporary or a permanent post:


 Provided that where such person already holds a lien on a permanent

post before such appointment, he shall be entitled to leave under these rules

as a permanent Government servant.



Rule 43 of Revised Rule Leave Rules 1972. Maternity Leave

 (1) A female Government servant (including an apprentice) with less

than two surviving children may be granted maternity leave by an

authority competent to grant leave for a period of (135 days) from

the date of its commencement.


(2) During such period, she shall be paid leave salary equal to the pay

drawn immediately before proceeding on leave.


 NOTE :- In the case of a person to whom Employees’ State Insurance

Act, 1948 (34 of 1948), applies, the amount of leave salary payable under

this rule shall be reduced by the amount of benefit payable under the said

Act for the corresponding period.


(3) Maternity leave not exceeding 45 days may also be granted to a

female Government servant (irrespective of the number of surviving

children) during the entire service of that female Government in case

of miscarriage including abortion on production of medical

certificate as laid down in Rule 19:


 `Provided that the maternity leave granted and availed of before the

commencement of the CCS(Leave) Amendment Rules, 1995, shall not be

taken into account for the purpose of this sub-rule.


(4) (a) Maternity leave may be combined with leave of any other kind.


 (b) Notwithstanding the requirement of production of medical

certificate contained in sub-rule (1) of Rule 30 or sub-rule (1) of Rule

31, leave of the kind due and admissible (including commuted leave for

a period not exceeding 60 days and leave not due) up to a maximum of

one year may, if applied for, be granted in continuation of maternity

leave granted under sub-rule (1).


 (5) Maternity leave shall not be debited against the leave account.



16. Probation :- All persons appointed to the lowest post of the service by

promotion shall be on probation for a period of one year.

 Provided that such of them as have, previous to their

appointment by promotion, officiated temporarily on the post which is followed

by regular selection may be permitted by the Commission to count such

officiating or temporary service towards the period of probation. This shall,

however, not amount to involve suppression of any senior person or disturb

the cadre of their preference.

 Provided further that any period after such appointment during

which a person has been on deputation on a corresponding or higher post


shall count towards the period of probation.

Accordingly, the period of Maternity Leave will count for qualifying service.
