Kolkata: West Bengal Government on Thursday declared 730 days Child Care Leave (CCL) for working mothers employed by the state government, apart from their scheduled maternity leaves, during their entire service career.

"This revolutionary decision has been taken in the state cabinet meeting today. The entire holiday will be with pay", state's Industry and Commerce Minister Partha Chatterjee told reporters.

With this decision, working mothers employed by the state government would be able to take care of their children in a better way, he said.

Welcoming the decision, United State Government Employees' Federation today described it as a 'Historic Decision'.

"We had a demand on this issue which the state government responded positively", the Federation officials said.
