Implement childcare leave: HC asks Centre

The Bombay High Court on Monday issued a notice to Union government on a petition filed by a woman seeking direction to the Airport Authority of India (AAI) to implement childcare leave as ordered by government in 2008.

A division bench of Justices V M Kanade and G S Kulkarni was hearing a petition filed by S Mangala, deputy general manager (aviation safety) AAI.

Mangala approached the high court after her request for leave to attend to her 12-year-old daughter with a learning disability was rejected by AAI.

According to her petition, the union government had in September 2008 introduced child care leave on recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission.
