The undersigned is directed to state that the matter regarding extension of revised orders on encashment of Earned Leave and Half Pay Leave lo industrial employees at par with the non industrial Central Government employees covered by the CCS (Leave) Rules. 1972 has been under consideration of this Department. It has been decided in consultation with the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) to extend the provision of this Department’s OM No.14028/3/2008-Estt (L) dated 25th September 2008, mutatis mutandis to industrial employees of Ministries/Department other than Railways.

  1. Sir,

    Sub: Encashment of EL and HPL to Industrial Employees.

    This is with reference to OM No. 12012/3/2009-Estt.(L) dated 28.12.2012 on the above subject issued by the Ministry of Personnel, PG&Pension, Deptt of P&T. In this connection, I wish to point out that the decision contained in the said OM is biased and unilateral keeping in view the exemption extended to employees of Railways and substantial “Pension” benefit to Central Govt. Employees. Since employees of the Industrial DA and Central DA are not at the same platform, imposing CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972 on employees of IDA pattern is not justified, specailly in the absence of Pension, which needs to be reviewed by the concerned department.



  2. Sir,

    I am an exserviceman and have availed 300 days leave encashment during army service. Thereafter I have served as reemployed civilain in defence for 10 years. Request conirm weather I am entitled for leave encashment in second service for 100 days. Thanking you please.

  3. It is seen after going through the stipulation in the above rules that a person whose increment falls on 1.1.2006 will get the increment on 1.1.2006 in the pre revised pay scale and will get the next increment in the revised pay structure oh 1.7.2006 i.e. on expiry of six months.
    Similarly, those, whose next increment is between 1st July 2006 and 1st December, 2006 would also be granted next increment in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006.
    The persons whose increment dates are between 1st Feb. 2006 and 1st June 2006 are now get the next increment on 1.7.2006.
    In the case of those who retired on 30th June and completed pensionable service but due to present provision of Date of Increment on 1st July they will not get Increment benefit but their junior whose date of Birth in July will retired on 31 July will get One Increment so senior will suffer a loss of one increment perpetually thus affecting their pension.
    So It is should proposed that the persons whose has completed six or more than six month in the year of retirement should be entitle for 1 increment at the time of his retirement
