Government Employees to get 42 Days Special Leave if they Donate Organs

Presently, rules say a maximum of 30 days can be granted as Special Casual Leave in any one calendar year.

An official memorandum (OM) issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said, “Organ removal from a donor is a major surgery, which requires time for recovery, including both hospitalisation and post-hospitalisation periods. Further, keeping in view the noble activity to help another human being and to promote organ donation among the Central Government employees, it has now been decided to grant a maximum of 42 days Special Casual Leave to a Central Government servant for donating their organ(s) to another human being, as a special welfare measure in public interest.
