    i am a teacher in a private school in Mumbai. I would like guidance about the adoption leave laws so that i may approach the management at my school when the time comes as we have just registered for adoption and are in the process of getting things set.
    i have come across laws for government officials who adopt but nothing that covers the private sector schools.
