I am to join a central govt department by 21st October but my sister's marriage is due next month. I being the elder son of the family have to shoulder all responsibilities of the marriage. I wanted an extension in joining and called the department for extension. They replied that I should send them a written application and then they will see what they can do. I am pretty sure by their attitude that, they are not going to give me any extension. If no extension is given, then I will join the department by 18th.
Now my question is what are the options availavle to me. Can I apply for an extraordinary leave 5 days after joining the department.
If there is anything else I could do
