It is observed in working place the most of the lady worker enjoyed CCL. Official work badly  hampering. If possible reduced the age limit 15 years of  minor child instead of 18 years.

If a female employee working in railway workshop has 300 LAP in her account is she entitle to avail CCL ?

Is it compulsary to produce any sickness certificate, examination datesheet of school for sanctioning of CCL ?

If the child is attending the school regularly can the mother avail CCL ?
