Paternity Leave Application Letter Format for Central Govt Employees
123, Gyan Vihar
Date: August 21st, 2020
The HR Manager
IT Department (Central Government)
Sub: Application for Paternity Leave
I, Ankit Sharma, am working in the IT Department of Central Government as Senior Engineer and I am writing this letter to inform you that my wife has delivered our baby on August 20, 2020. We don’t have any of our family members or relatives in the city and therefore, I will have to be with her during this time. Therefore, I would like to use all of my paternity leaves of 15 days starting from August 21st, 2020 till September 4th, 2020
During my absence from work, I will always be available over phone as well as mail so that my colleagues can get in touch with me and the work doesn’t suffer in my absence. I again request you to please grant me the paternity leave.
Thanking in anticipation.
