The government has implemented a new rule saying that those who are single men can get child care leave to take care of their child.
Single men employed in India government jobs will get the benefit of child care leave.
“Single male guardians” include government employees who are unmarried and divorced.
Jitendra Singh says that an order has been issue to this effect.
The first-year child care leave can be used with 100 percent leave salary.
For next year they will be able to use it with 85 percent leave salary.
Even after the order was passed, it did not make headlines.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh says that the government is doing its best to make the lives of government employees happy.
This order had come some time ago, but due to personal reasons, it could not come in the discussion.
